Labor Day at Boulder Creek

From The Folknik July/Aug 1998

We will be at Boulder Creek Scout Reservation again, the same place as our July 4, 1998 campout and also last year's Labor Day. The camp is near the town of Boulder Creek on Bear Creek Road. A confirmation and directions to the camp will be sent to you when you register. Please register early; the ranger would like to have an approximate count of the number of people attending before we arrive. Registration form is below on this page.

Parking-New Information

We have some new information about the parking. Parking is in a central lot, not at the campsites. Campers' vehicles will not be allowed beyond the parking lot without permission of the ranger. People with motorhomes will need to contact the ranger about parking on arrival at camp. Motorhome parking will probably be in a different area from Labor Day, 1997.

There are handcarts at the camp for transporting camping gear to and from the campsites. Plan to pack as light as possible.

We will have SFFMC volunteers to register campers and direct parking. There will be signs designating the parking area. Please follow the directions of the people directing the parking. Please back in to the parking spaces at the lot. The parking lot duty is one of the first things we'll need volunteers for.

Activities: Potluck, Swimming

There will be a community potluck at the outside dining area near the kitchen on Sat. night at 6:00 p.m.

A concert in the amphitheater will follow. You can bring your potluck food and store it in the refrigerator in the camp kitchen until the dinner. There is also a freezer. The kitchen has stoves we can use for heating food and is fully equipped with pots and pans.

Bring your own plates and silverware to the potluck dinner; paper plates and plastic eating utensils are suggested. There is no dish washing machine.

We plan to hire a lifeguard and use the pool, which is smaller than the pool at Camp Cutter-maybe one-third the size. We have obtained a lifeguard for two days from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. Charge will be $1 per person, to pay the cost of the lifeguard.

Help Needed

Please plan to sign up for an hour for a duty: parking, registration, archery supervision, or camp cleanup, especially at the end of camp. Archery volunteers should be familiar with the equipment. If we have someone familiar with archery, maybe we could instruct some of the rest of the volunteers.


It is self-service. When the garbage can at your site is full, please take the full plastic bag up to the trailer at the east end of the warehouse. Get an empty plastic bag and take it back to your garbage can. Please do not use garbage cans without the plastic bag liner.

Caution-Quiet Hours

The camp has neighbors directly across Bear Creek, so any singing after 10:00 p.m.-the usual curfew for noise-near the creek will need to be quiet songs. We need to locate our singing circle or circles as far from the creek if possible if we plan to sing later than that.
