Halloween Camp Out at Camp Fife
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

On Friday, October 26th, 2018, Eastern Washington Adventures Club members met up at the Curtis Gilbert Lodge at Camp Fife for the annual Halloween 4×4 Run. We built a fire in the stove and then had a potluck dinner. We enjoyed the night talking about adventures. There were many elk right outside the front door making noise all night.

Saturday morning we had a potluck breakfast and then headed out for the 4×4 run with four Jeeps, a XJ, a YJ, a TJ, and a JK. Our first stop was at the end of the pavement of Bumping River Road to air down. Next we headed up the road to Granite Lake for a break. It was very peaceful at Granite Lake.

After awhile, we headed on up the mountain to Miners Ridge. The view was great on top. Mount Rainier was clear and standing out! With binoculars you could Sunrise Visitor Center at Mount Rainier National Park. We had lunch there and enjoyed the view.

After lunch we headed back down. Two rigs headed to the Copper City 4×4 Trail and two of us headed back to Camp Fife.

Back at camp Fife it started raining. So we sit around the fire staying warm. When the others got back, we had a potluck dinner. It rained all night.

Sunday morning we had a potluck breakfast and packed up for home. We aired up our tires and took a walk over to the Camp Fife Dining Hall. Two of our members help getting it built years ago.

We head home around noon. The fall colors were great along SR410.

This we a great time thanks to all who came.

Camp Fife is a Boy Scout camp and is located in the Cascades off of Chinook Pass near Bumping Lake in Goose Prairie, Washington.

Camp Fife Summer Camp-out
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Adventures – Selah Community & Tourism.

On Saturday morning, August 15 2015, Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 convoyed from Selah to Camp Fife to set up camp at Curtis Gilbert Boy Scout Lodge. Camp Fife is a Boy Scout camp and is located in the Cascades off of Chinook Pass near Bumping Lake in Goose Prairie, Washington.

Once camp was set up, the Cub Scouts carpooled with parents to Raven Roost. Raven Roost is over 6000 feet above sea level and has a great view of Mount Rainier. On this day the weather was cold and the mount view was lost in the clouds. We did not stay long. We headed back down the mountain to were it was warm.

It was still early enough to do another “Go see it” so we headed up the Little Naches River to the fish ladder. We stayed awhile and the Scouts had fun exploring the area.

Next it was time to head back to Camp Fife to cook dinner. The leader cooked dinner since the Scouts could not cook their own food in the campfire due to a burn band.

Sunday morning some of the Cub Scouts got up early helped set up the screen pop up so the bees would not attack the food being cooked. Once all Scouts were up, they raised the flag and did the Pledge of Allegiance. A short time later there was a pancake breakfast with bacon, hash browns, and eggs made by the Scout Leaders and parents.

After breakfast everyone helped to clean the lodge and surrounding area. Once everything was cleaned and the gear was packed up in the vehicles, the Scouts and families did a hike through Camp Fife to check everything out. The Cub Scouts got to see all the camp has to offer them as Boy Scouts.

Once back at the Curtis Gilbert Lodge we loaded up in the vehicles and convoyed to Boulder Cave. Once there we had lunch and then headed on a hike up the Boulder Cave Trail.

We have hiked this trail for many years and always had a great time. On this day we were very disappointed on what we saw. People had made many other trails off the normal path. There was a lot of people off the trail in many places. We watched other people throw their trash down as the walked.

One group was drinking beer on the Boulder Cave Trail and had left a beer bottle behind. As we came up to a group of people blocking the trail, they were swearing and drinking the brand of beer left behind. We watch one guy open a beer and throw the cap on the ground. We let them know they forgot a beer bottle and they told us it wasn’t theirs. They had a real bad attitude so we walked around them and kept going.

The Cub Scouts saw a lot of things people were doing against what the Boy Scouts are taught. This maybe our last Scout hike at Boulder Cave if the Forest Service does start enforcing the leave no trace rules.

Over all this was a very fun Cub Scout Camp Out.

We are planning our next camping trip at Camp Fife to be this coming winter.

Photos: Selah Cub Scout Webelos Winter Camping with Selah Boy Scouts

Selah Cub Scout Webelos Winter Camping with Selah Boy Scouts
Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Adventures, Selah Community & Tourism.

Selah Boy Scout Troop 275 invited Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 Webelos 1 and 2 Dens to the troop winter camping trip to see what Boy Scouts is like. Six Webelos Year 2s and one Webelos Year 1 signed up to go. This would the first time for these Cub Scouts to go on a Boy Scout Camp-out.

Around 5 PM Friday January 30th 2015, the Scouts met up at Selah United Methodist Church to pack for the trip. Once everything was packed and everyone was ready, we convoyed up to Camp Fife in Goose Prairie, Washington which it near Bumping Lake. Bumping River Road was icy but not to bad for traveling.

At Camp Fife we set up for the weekend in Dee Hunter All Seasons Lodge. This lodge had two sections giving us two times of everything. Each with wood stoves for heat, kitchens, restrooms with showers, and a lot of bunk beds.  There was no power so the lodge had propane lighting which wasn’t to bright.

By the time it was lights out, the lodge was very warm down stairs and hot upstairs were the bunks were. It was kind of a late night getting to sleep since some of the Scouts were a little wound up.

Saturday morning the Boy Scouts cooked us great breakfast. After the dishes were done, we headed out for a tour of Camp Fife by Scout Master Willey. The Scout Master took us around the whole camp showing us things that are used for the week long Boy Scout Summer Camp that is held in July. After the tour the Boy Scouts made lunch.

The rest of the afternoon the Scouts played in the snow. A lot of the Scout went sledding. Scout Master Willey taught two of the Cub Scouts how to cross country ski. Everyone seem to have a lot of fun.

The Scouts cooked dinner just after dark. Most of the Scouts and adults played indoor games until lights out. On this night we all seem to get to sleep pretty fast. It was a long fun day of playing that wore most of us out.

Sunday morning the Scouts cooked breakfast. Then it was time to clean up the whole lodge and pack for home. Most wanted to be back home early to get ready to watch the Super Bowl. It was starting to snow so leaving early wasn’t a bad idea anyway.

Once the lodge was cleaned and everything packed in the vehicles, we headed back to Selah. The road out was covered with snow and it was very hard to see the ruts in the ice below. Those ruts caused our Jeep to slide a few times on the way to SR410. SR410 had only snow on it a little ways.

This was a great time for my two sons and I. I am sure most would say the same.

Thank you Selah Boy Scout Troop 275!!!


This is just one thing Cub Scouts get to do going through the ranks. If you have a young boy looking for adventures, check out Selah Cub Scout Pack 276.
