General Site Info:
Oxbow Park, Group Site 1 http://www.oregonmetro.gov/parks/oxbow-regional-park There is a $5 fee to enter the park, in addition to our campout fee.
Group Site 1 has a bank of vault toilets (newer), a fire pit, and a covered pavilion. We will plan to eat our meals as sections in the pavilion. There is running water, but no sinks in the bathroom area. However, the actual Oxbow Park public campground is down the road. There is a full bathroom building with coin-operated showers.
General Program Info:
The section leaders are meeting in mid-March to plan the program and develop the flow for the weekend. We will likely begin at 10am on Saturday, end around lunchtime on Sunday. The program will be skill-building, hiking, games, scoutcraft, campfire, etc. We will hold a special ceremony for Otters moving on or becoming Timberwolves after campfire on Saturday night.
More detailed information coming soon.

Timberwolves and Pathfinders will prepare, cook, eat, and clean together in their own Cantina. The cost to participate is $5 per person.
Otters, Chipmunks, and their families will eat together “family-style” but will not be tasked with preparation. We will gratefully ask a few adults to assist in the kitchen. Cost is also $5 (suggested donation) per person.
We are all familiar with children’s dietary choices and we respect the intricacies of our individual scouts. You are welcome to bring and prepare your own food, though space is limited in the covered pavilion.
