Camporee is a multi-unit competitive event held in May. If possible, bring in a group of scouts on the previous weekend to help with site selection and preperation. Excellent campout to invite Webelos to.
This is a site that we can get after the official closing date in exchange for a service project.
River's Edge is located on the Alsea Rd., Rt 34, on the left near milepost 23. There is a large covered area with picnic tables, a fireplace and grills for charcoal cooking. The area borders the Alsea River. There is a large, open, mowed field between the covered area and the river which is great for games. If they wish, scouts and adults will be able to fish for salmon in the Alsea or Fall Creek, a short drive away. Fishing will require appropriate licences.
It is my understanding that Starker Forest will allow scouts to camp on their property, and allow cutting of poles for pioneering projects (subject to certain rules). This could be a nice prelude to camporee.
