THANKS TO THOSE THAT CAME TO CELEBRATE OUR 75th ANNIVERSARY WITH US!
Camp Makualla Taking Reservations for 2014!
If you did not get to Makualla during the 75th anniversary celebration, there is an awesome video made by Troop 180 in McKinleyville, CA that will show you all that you missed. You can access the video through our facebook page at
Makualla created a new area call Emergency Services, which was a HUGE hit and included Search & Rescue MB and Fingerprinting MB. We added Watersports MB to the waterfront activities, another big hit with waterskiing and wakeboarding happening. This compliments the Small Boat Sailing MB and the Motorboating MB where Scouts (and adults) have the opportunity to complete the Oregon State Marine Board’s Boat Oregon course. Welding was also a new Merit Badge for us in 2013.
We kicked off a really cool scavenger hunt that seemed to be enjoyed by all who did it and that event had a patch that was earned by participating. This allowed the Scouts and Scouters to learn more about the history of camp and the area that camp is in. We will continue this new program in 2014.
Next summer we will be contracting with an additional whitewater rafting company that will add another Outpost to our already extensive menu of things to do in addition to or instead of merit badges and/ or Trail to First Class. These things include the Marsh Creek Yak Board trip, the overnight trip to Simax Beach or Echo Island (depending on lake level), and going to Smith Rock. We also have bikes available for surrounding bike trails, not to mention hikes to Diamond Peak and Cowhorn.
