Camp Parsons PDF Print E-mail


 Camp Parsons is situated on the Olympic Peninsula "where the mountains meet the sea". This remarkable setting offers the rare experience of canoeing on glassy salt water, while gazing along a densely forested shoreline. Camp Parsons is one of the oldest Scout camps in America, providing wilderness adventure to Scouts and Scouters since 1919. Special features include the climbing tower, 16-position rifle and archery ranges, and the Fort Dukabush museum. Swimming, canoeing, and sailing in the saltwater aquatics area are other popular activities available to visitors. 

Campsites feature either canvas tents with platforms or Adirondack shelters with bunks, as well as showers and flush toilets. For further detailed information about Camp Parsons programs and history, go to the camp's website HERE.

Camp Parsons is accredited through the BSA National Camp Accreditation Program (NCAP).
