About Camp Pioneer

For a small camp, Pioneer has great outdoor adventure to offer. Located in the scenic Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, this camp is a full-service, true "mountain camp." Established in 1936 on Pine Lake in the shadow of Mt. Jefferson, the camp features rowing, canoeing, swimming, fishing, kayaking as well as Scoutcraft skills like cooking and pioneering.

Cascade Rangers

Cascade Rangers is Pioneer's signature program designed to give older Scouts (14 - 17 years of age) a more challenging outdoor experience. Scouts have the opportunity to climb Mt. Jefferson (10,495' elevation) or Three-Fingered Jack (7,844' elevation), hike to Eight Lakes Basin and spend at least two nights out in the wilderness.
