Camp Edward

Formerly Camp Brinkley, Camp Edward is a Boy Scout Summer Camp situated at the foothills of the Cascade mountain range approximately one hour from Seattle. Chief Seattle Council's Cub Scout Resident Camp has offered many fun activities to youth for more than four decades. It's a great place for camping programs, rental groups and course field trips.
