  • Summer Camp at Cooper (Not Pioneer!) Camp Pioneer was to be the expected destination for summer camp this year. This all changed in an instant the day before leaving, due to a forest fire that caused the evacuation of the camp. An alternative was quickly found; one located in the coast range, deep within the Tillamook State Forest and familiar to many of the scouts from their time working on service projects - Camp Cooper. They were happy to accommodate us (and some of the Pioneer staff), though it was a tight squeeze into the campground (38 scoutsin an area set up for 14!)

The Easter celebrations have been taking place at the Community Park for the last 42 years. Donations of cans and non-perishable foods were collected to support the Tualatin food pantry and a great time was had by all on a beautiful Spring day.

  • Summer at Camp Meriwether Summer camp this year was at the beautiful Camp Meriwether, tucked away in a remote section of the Oregon Coast. The troop took up the largest campsite and took full advantage of the beautiful weather (well apart from one day) to use the Climbing Wall, practice metalworking, sandboarding, black powder rifles and a range of water sports in addition to assorted merit badges and rank advancements.The Scouts ranked highly in the Triathalon and the assorted inter-troop team games. The adults excelled at the chili and dessert cook-offs. There was even time for a beautiful hike up to the nearby Cape Lookout.

  • Wapiti Camporee at Evergreen Museum Once again, the Evergreen Museum in McMinnville hosted the Wapiti District Camporee. The Scouts came prepared after a pre-camporee campout with the skills to set up the tarp tents, KP station, dining areas and know exactly what is needed for a successful weekend camp. The food was excellent and though the weather did not cooperate the camp area stayed relatively mud free and earned the scouts the award for the best campsite.The Scouts (and some Adults) were able to work on a range of activities, from Tomahawk throwing through to outdoor skills. In the evening, the Evergreen Museum graciously opened their museum and IMAX Cinema, both of which were very much appreciated by all.
