Treasure Valley

With our 100th anniversary event coming up this same weekend, we will stay close to that action by camping at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation. With 1600 acres to play in, we will likely do ome day hiking into the forest. As a theme activity, we kick up the knot tying action with some constructions made using lashings - bring your imagination. Make something to use in cooking or even something you can climb.

Small tents will fit on the platforms at the site. There is some open space for larger tents.

As we will be able to park near the site, weight is not important. We can cook as heavy as we want - Dutch Ovens anyone?

Use our Backwoods Camping List to make sure you don't forget anything. See other camping information on our Camping page. Definitely bring rain gear.

We'll wear Class B uniform (troop T-shirt with any pants, to keep our Class A uniforms clean for the celebration. Don't forget to pack your whole uniform and bring what you need to take a shower.
