Council Executive Board Actions Regarding the Sale of Camp Hahobas

Home > Hahobas History > Property Sale Actions

On December 16, 2015 The Executive Board of the Pacific Harbors Council voted to close the Camp Hahobas summer camp program and three other Council properties: Camp Delezenne, Camp Curran and Camp Kilworth.

The board also approved preparations for Camp Hahobas and the other properties to be put on the market for sale.

On Monday, February 25, 2019, the Council closed on the sale of a majority of the camp property to the DNR and the Great Peninsula Conservancy, leaving the remaining 120 acres of Camp Hahobas under Council ownership, which will be opened for primitive camping by Scout units.

At the Pacific Harbors Council annual meeting on Thursday, April 18, 2019, the Council Executive Board voted unanimously to open the camp for 'Weekend Camping', and to 'hold the property for the long term'.

In October 2020, Scout Executive Karen Meier directed that the camp be re-opened for primitive camping in the summer of 2021. Work is currently under way to prepare the camp for re-opening in July, 2021.

The remaining camp property includes the rifle and archery ranges, the Bear Bowl, the Nature Lodge, Environmental Science Lodge, Fruitcake Lodge, Handicrafts Lodge, Twana Lodge, U Lake and the Robbins Lake waterfront.

The property purchased by the DNR and Great Peninsula Conservancy will be available for non-camping use by Scouts, and has a permanent conservation easement, and will never be commercially developed.
