About Camp Malakwa

Located at the crest of the Cascades near the Three Sisters Wilderness, Camp Malakwa offers a rugged and fun Adventure for your Boy Scout Troop.

At Camp Melakwa, high in the heart of the Cascades, Scouts and Scouters alike find the pinnacle of what Scouting offers. We help your troop focus on the patrol method, key skills, rank advancement and high-country wilderness adventure. 

The program at Camp Melakwa is tailored to promoting adventure. Our structured morning merit badge sessions give way to afternoons of exploration. Enjoy open archery, rifle, and shotgun ranges, as well as open areas in waterfront, nature, and Scoutcraft. The call of the mountains and endless trails will be a constant allure.

  • Climb the Middle Sister or descend into an ancient lava tube.

  • Swim, snorkel, SUP, kayak, canoe, row, and fish in our surprisingly warm crystal-clear lake.

  • Attain rank on the Trail to First Class.

  • Climb and rappel on natural rock.

  • Day hike to one of the many surrounding lakes.

Jamboree-Style Cooking

Scouts cook most of their meals in the campsite, which supports the camps’ long-standing focus on the Patrol Method. Using the Patrol Method, Scouts develop teamwork and leadership skills.
