Come join us for two nights of tent camping in the beautiful San Juan Islands! We have 14 camp sites reserved at Bowman Bay; a quieter and more secluded section of Deception Pass State Park.  The views of the Pacific Ocean are stunning, with campsites 100 yards from the beach. We will enjoy some hiking, beach combing and campfire cooking!  Come join the fun and get to know other scouting families!  This is where the memories are made!

We will enjoy hiking together, learning scouting skills, roasting s’mores, songs around the campfire, and yes… even a little relaxation!  Bring the whole family!

We have reserved 14 campsites which are available to the first 14 families that sign up. However, a site can have multiple tents and up to 8 people. If necessary, we can double up and fit more people!

  • Fee is $75.00 per family, which covers the cost of the campsite rental
  • Fees are due to our Treasurer, Mark Nelson, by our May Pack Meeting on Wednesday, May 17, 2016
  • Families are responsible for their own food and equipment (however some of our families have extra equipment, so please ask if you need something!)
  • We will have evening campfires, s’mores, skits, hiking and other fun activities planned along with unstructured time for all the families to hang out with one another
