Troop 799's Snow Caving Outing is Feb 20-21 at Timberline Lodge.

We will be spending the night near Timberline lodge (6000 ft.), in snow caves that we will prepare on Saturday, note we are not taking any tents. After dinner Saturday evening we will make a trip to the lodge to warm up and get dry (should any of us be wet from digging in the snow all day).

We will cook Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast. Bring a sack lunch and drinks for Saturday. You will also need to bring plenty of water to drink as digging is thirsty work, and at these altitudes dehydration is a problem especially at this time of year.

We will depart after breakfast and camp cleanup.  Bring personal camping gear and warm clothing (snow gear & boots), NO COTTON CLOTHES OR SNEAKERS. It normally takes all-day to prepare the caves, and the weather can get below zero, especially if there is any wind. You will also need to bring a flashlight with FRESH batteries, ground sheet, and an insulating sleeping pad (closed foam) as you will be sleeping on snow, something to dig a cave with.  With the rain we had this week plan on having to dig through a layer of ice.  Please see the attached file for the permission slip and additional information.

Barview Jetty Camping (Mar 12-13) PDF Print E-mail

Barview Jetty County Campground is at the entrance of Tillamook Bay. It has secluded camp sites, a short walk to the beach, fishing from the jetty rocks, and a sand dune hill to play on.

A sack lunch should be brought for Saturday. Patrols will cook Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and Sunday lunch. Checkout time is 1:30pm Sunday and drop off at homes around 3-4 pm.

Since there are currently some scouts (and incoming webelos) that need Second Class requirement 1b (5 mile hike with map and compass), this nearby hike would be great for that...

White River


Family Outing

January 31st

We would like to invite all Webelos I and II to join us for fun in the snow. We will meet at Durham Elementary at 8:30 AM Sunday January 31st. All family members are welcome. We will supply lunch, hot chocolate and hot cider for everybody. Please bring any snacks you might want throughout the day. Also bring any snow sledding equipment you might have. Dress warm. We hope to see you there.

Driving Directions

To reach the Sno-Park, drive on US 26 to the Highway 35 junction, and follow Highway 35 to well-marked White River West Sno-Park, on the left, just before the bridge over the White River (if you cross the bridge, you've gone too far!). The Sno-Park is quite large, and includes a year-round restroom at the forested west side. Park near the north edge for easy access to the snow trails.

Please RSVP so we can plan the food. Need to know by Jan 26th.
