Iron Man Survival Trek

Iron Man Survival Trek High Adventure Program - 2016

In an attempt to boost camp attendance by older Scouts,

Off Season Use

Off Season Winter Use of Camp - Hahobas Beach Cabin

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.
