ABOUT THE ENCAMPMENT

The Inland Northwest has a rich history of Boy Scout encampments. Nearly 35,000 scouts gathered at Farragut State Park, north of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, for the 1969 national jamboree. Farragut later hosted 11,000 LDS scouts and leaders in 1984 for what was then the largest LDS scout encampment in the history of the Church.

Following in this tradition, all eyes turn in 2012 to the Cowles Scout Reservation, located twenty minutes west of Newport, Washington. From July 30 to August 4, 2012, Cowles Scout Reservation will host more than 2,000 boys and leaders from 17 stakes for the 2012 Aaronic Priesthood Encampment.

The theme of the 2012 LDS scout encampment is “Catch the Vision.” Our vision is one of a week of camping where young men see the vision of what they can become and are inspired to make choices consistent with their divine potential.

We invite you to join us in the forests of eastern Washington in 2012. We are planning a full week of scout activities; camp-wide, stake- and ward-level programs; and individual experiences and hope your young men will “Catch the Vision” at this once-in-a-lifetime event.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

As we approach the encampment, some of information on the web site becomes outdated. This information is removed from the active portion of the web site, but is still listed under “Historical Information” in the site map. If you are trying to find something that used to be here, perhaps it has been archived and you can find it there.
