Welcome to Camp Clark
Cub Scout camp for boys and girls ages 9 – 10 years old | Oregon Coast – Near Tillamook
Experience tidepools up close at Camp Clark.
Wake up each day to an ocean breeze, discover sea urchins, star fish and sand dollars in beautiful Oregon tide pools. Camp Clark is a beachfront BSA camp. Learn about the Pacific Ocean while exploring the coast line. And of course, we’ve got bonfires at the beach at night.
Learn skills and crafts from an era gone by.
Try out pioneering skills like weaving and candle making in our Frontier Village led by expert professionals. Many of our activities are hands-on so our Scouts get to experience the adventure.
Age-appropriate activities for our oldest Cub Scouts.
Designed for Webelos
Camp Clark’s program is for Webelos to give them a full camping experience that prepares them for their next adventure as Scouts in a troop. Activities and learning stations are designed to help Webelos understand how a Scout troop works. There’s even a hike to Camp Meriwether next door that includes a fun tour of all the older-youth activities.
The bioluminescence hike was wonderful. The Camp Clark staff were wonderful. They make the camp what it is.
The staff has a lot of will and talent. It was a pleasure working with them and I had a lot to learn from them.
Camp Clark Activities
Beach Exploration: Check out tide pools, collect cool rocks and with the help of Camp Clark staff, identify rock formations and how erosion, tides, and beaches all work together.
Flora/Fauna Hikes: Go on guided walks and learn about native Northwest coastal plants. Learn cool facts about each plant and its history.
BB gun shooting and archery are featured activities at Camp Clark. Safety rules and procedures are taught to all campers who then work on their proficiency and accuracy while having a lot of fun.
Quest for Adventure
BMX pump track for biking: With a state-of-the-art BMX pump track, Cub Scouts at Camp Clark explore the great outdoors, testing their physical abilities on safe terrain and courses.
Obstacle course: Scouts can challenge their abilities on Camp Clark’s famous Obstacle Course featuring a rope walk, climbing wall, spider web, sliding tube and more.
Gaga Ball and team games: from soccer to Gaga Ball, Scouts have fun and interact with each other while learning sportsmanship.
Adventures in Science
From Lego robotics to snap circuits to rockets, Scouts explore physics, engineering and sportsmanship through fun, experiential learning activities at camp. With Lego robotics, Scouts program and operate their very own robot and with snap circuits, discover how electricity works. And the rocket station is the most popular at Camp Clark while Scouts compete to see whose rocket goes up the highest.
Frontier Village is a place to explore activities and try-out skills used back in the day of Lewis & Clark. There’s a weaving station where Scouts can view a Nature Loom, or they may hear legends and lore of Native American life in the big Tepee. Scouts may also watch a live, authentic blacksmith demonstration and witness an annual Camp Clark tradition as a log war canoe is made by burning, soaking and scraping the log.
Build it, Make it
Try various types of woodcraft and make items to take home – like a birdhouse. Or, Scouts can visit the medicine bag station and create medicine pouches to carry around the awesome things they discover at camp. And there’s also a leathercraft station where Scouts can use stamps to print symbols and cool pictures onto their camp creations.
