From Bo Henderson re: council camps:
Just this morning we have been informed by the United States Forest Service that we are allowed to resume operation at all of our facilities on leased Forest Service land until further notice. This means all three winter lodges, Camp Pioneer, and a small part of Camp Baldwin are back open for use for all council, district and unit activities. The confusion over the last few days has been unfortunate, however we are excited that we now are able to operate our facilities as normal. Thank you to everyone for your patience as we worked our way through this situation.
Winter Lodge Clean Up Day this Saturday
Because we are now able to use our lodges again, the Winter Lodge Clean Up Day will continue this Saturday as planned. Clean Up will be happening at both Aubrey Watzek and Nanitch. We currently have all the volunteers we need this weekend for Aubrey. If your unit is still interested in receiving service day discounts for using the lodge, and/or interested in gaining early access to the reservation system if your unit is a Cub Scout Pack, you can still sign up to volunteer at the cleanup at Nanitch regardless of which lodge your unit plans on using for the winter. For more information about the Winter Lodge Clean Up Day or for the Winter Lodge program in general, please visit www.cpcbsa.org/winterlodge.
Have you checked out the October Scout Cast and Cub Casts? You do not need an iPod in order to listen to these casts. But you do need to listen to them to get their great information.
Troops can learn “Who’s Who in the Zoo”, what roles do commissioners and committee members play.
Packs can find out why they need a den chief.
Due to overbooking at Camp Royce Finel this weekend…our re-scheduled Royce Finel work day has once again been cancelled. Re-scheduling will most likely be after the first of the year.

In a message from Tom Grimm…
The work day scheduled for Tomorrow has been cancelled and that it will be re-scheduled for Saturday October 12 providing it’s not nasty weather otherwise it may be moved to March.
The plan is to clear the brush from site# 3 campsite and to start pulling the boards apart that went to the other side of property that our lease has dropped so we can install on North end of trail a boardwalk through the swamp next spring.
People can always contact me if they are interested either by phone or e-mail

In 2014, June 29-July 3, Camp Clark, on the Oregon Coast, is making available the extraordinary opportunity for the entire Pack to come to resident camp together. Campers at Camp Clark will experience all of the exciting and traditional experiences of Scout camp including shooting sports, camp songs, games, and hikes.
Tigers, Wolves and Bears will spend their time experiencing what it might have been like to be a boy on the Oregon Trail. Webelos will spend their days at camp learning skills and activities that a young brave might have learned during the days of the Corp of Discovery with Lewis and Clark.
Everyone at Camp Clark will have time to spend on the beach exploring the tide pools, searching for that special sand dollar for the smallest sand dollar contest, take a night hike on the beach to search for bioluminescent plankton, sing camp songs and watch skits at campfire.
