August Outing

August 25 – 26, 2012
Location: TBD

We continue to build skills that have been well practiced at Summer Camp. Most of the boys will have either earned, or nearly earned, the Canoeing Merit badge at Summer Camp. This outing is typically a 10+ mile tour of a Class1-2 river. We spend Saturday practicing, and Sunday touring. What a great way to enjoy the dog days of summer – on a cool river!

Summer Camp 2012

This summer our troop continued its unique, 50-plus-year tradition of building its own summer camp at a lake in the high Sierra.  20 participants in the Advance Camp prepared the camp by cleaning up what others had left behind and creating facilities that included a large kitchen, three latrines, impressive flagpole, waterfront and much more.

The troop endured several miles of rough roads to reach Sawmill Lake where they were richly rewarded.  Summer camp included 40 scouts (patrols, Senior Patrol Leaders and the Instructor Corps) who participated in swimming and boating, navigation & ropework skills, working with others, (propane-fired) campfire experiences and having lots of fun, all in a beautiful wilderness setting.

Some advancement opportunities included a 5-mile troop hike, First Class orienteering course, Trail to First Class requirements and various merit badges, including Camping, Canoeing, Communications, several crafts merit badges, Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Science, Fishing, Geocaching, Lifesaving, Nature, Orienteering, Photography, Pioneering, Sailing and – of course – Swimming.

There were patrol contests such as canoe races, wood chopping and the two-man saw.  The scouts enjoyed games like Tug-O-War, Two Ball and the very popular White Bomb.  Five scouts completed the mile swim as well.

Highlights included a night of lightning and heavy rain, crossing the Lake Faucherie spillway during our 5-mile hike and bridging new scouts across a monkey bridge.  We will remember the beautiful scenery, clear water and relationships that deepened during the outing. Of course we followed “leave no trace” principles and restored the area to its natural condition before we departed.  Overall, this was an outstanding summer camp experience!

June Outing

June 23 & 24, 2012
Location: Putah Creek

Our June outing is the “get ready for summer camp” outing! The boys are either re-acquainting themselves with canoe skills, or well on their way to building the skills that will be used on most future outings. We go to a nearby reservoir and work on canoe paddling, safety, and recovery. The day usually ends with the boys all time favorite – Swamp Wars! Be sure to be ready for skits and story telling around the fire.. all a warm up for the best outing of the year – Summer Camp!

Family Ski Trip

On February 24 & 25 the troop and crew skied (and snowboarders rode) at Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. The group rate discount on lift tickets and equipment rentals made the weekend more affordable. Away from the slope the scouts and younger siblings threw snowballs and sledded. Indoors we played board games, had extended talks, got homework done and some earned Snow Sports merit badge. The cabin community worked well for our group and the food provided by the Trail Boss and S.O. was delicious. It was a great getaway!
