Past Events - Hahobas BSA
In an attempt to boost camp attendance by older Scouts,
in 2016 a new program was planned - An exciting, 4 day and 3 night Trek along the shores of Hood Canal and Tahuya Forest will combine COPE, Mountain Biking, Canoeing and Kayaking, Survival Skills, Cooking, Search and Rescue, and more! Trek capacity was limited to 12 boys per week. Available to Scouts 13 & up (13 years old by July 11th), boys may attend this program as a 'Lone Scout', without their Troop.
Unfortunately, the camp was closed in early 2016 before the new program was launched.
Day one will feature team building on the COPE Course, followed by mountain bike tuning and repair, to prep your bike for the upcoming trek. You will spend the night in camp, in your own tent.

Camp Hahobas had almost continual use in the offseason by individual units, Council activities and District events.
The beach property is now owned by the Great Peninsula Conservancy, and the beach cabin was demolished in 2021.
One of the key areas we used at camp was the Hood Canal beachfront, where the Hahobas Beach Cabin was located. At low tides of +1 ft and lower, oysters and clams are routinely accessible.
Camp Hahobas was open year-round, for Troop campouts, camporees or private group events. The beach cabin was avaliable for rental as well.
Operation Bear Claw Camporee was a Mission Impossible, spy-themed event, with Scouts dressing up as black ops soldiers, and adopting military themes for their patrols.
500 Scouts and adults attended this event.

The Camp Hahobas off-season Adventure Series was a new program designed to bring exciting activities to Camp when summer camp is not operating.
Starting in the Spring of 2015, the series kicked off with a Blacksmithing and Welding Weekend workshop, where attendees learned the basic skills of blacksmithing or earn the Welding merit badge.
In May, we presented a Mountain Bike XC Race, utilizing the newest program feature at Hahobas, the new Mountain Biking Track.
June brought an Aquatics Adventure, with attendees earning the Canoeing merit badge, and taking a Sea Kayak adventure on Hood Canal.
Unfortunately, the Adventure Series Events were cancelled for 2016, due to the closure of Camp Hahobas.
