Adopt-A-Campsite For Camp Meriwether

Campsite upgrades began several years ago at Camp Meriwether, but with 18 campsites, it has been a slow process.  Many structures in campsites scattered throughout Meriwether have already been upgraded to our newer designs.  Because of this, monetary estimates and service needs for the campsites at Meriwether vary greatly.

Oregon coastal weather at Camp Meriwether dictates how much of the camp is constructed.  Campsite structures must be build to protect campers from the wind and rain.  Part of this effort is converting all of the tent platforms in camp to minidacks and replacing the 60-year-old adirondacks at camp with a design that is currently being used in two campsites created as part of the Meriwether capital campaign nearly ten years ago.  Pictures of various model structures can be seen above. 

Camp Meriwether built four new washstands in 2015 that have now become the model for all campsites throughout the council.  All other washstands throughout camp need to be upgraded to this new design as part of the Centennial Adopt-A-Campsite program.  Campsite signage, campfire areas, bulletin boards, flag poles and ax yards are all to be included as part of the program as well.  See the chart and links below in the Campsite Needs Summary section for the exact needs of each campsite.
