Troop 140 is going to CAMP BALDWIN - By Austin

I'm excited for summer camp 2015.  We are going to Camp Baldwin!  Baldwin was the first summer camp I went to as a Boy Scout.

Camp Baldwin is on the other side of Mt Hood. Camp Baldwin is very dusty and is a horse camp. One of my favorite parts of Baldwin was earning the horsemanship merit badge.  I got it when I went, I also went on the overnight horse trek.

On the horse trek, you ride a horse to the middle of nowhere after dinner.  Before you can get your stuff done you have to take care of your horse.  That includes feeding it, taking the saddle off and checking the horse is tied to the rope correctly.  Then you can set up your bed under the stars and go to sleep.  When you wake up the next morning, you have to take care of your horse before you can eat breakfast. Then you pack up and ride back to camp.

At Camp Baldwin, there isn't a dining hall.  You have to cook every meal at your campsite.  Food gets dropped off early in the morning for breakfast and just before lunch with food for lunch and dinner.
