Summer Camp Planning

July 17 – 20: 2012: Advance Camp

July 20 – 27: Summer Camp

July 28: Summer Camp Clean-up

Location: (targeting) Loon Lake

Summer camp planning is well underway, so make sure you’ve set aside the week!

This summer our troop will continue its unique, 50-year tradition of building its own summer camp at a lake in the high Sierra.  Summer camp offers Scouts waterfront activities, wood skills, working with others in their patrols, campfire experiences and having lots of fun, all in a beautiful wilderness setting.

Some advancement opportunities will include a 5-mile troop hike, First Class orienteering course, Trail to First Class requirements and over 20 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 will be patrol contests such as canoe races, wood chopping and the two-man saw.  The Scouts enjoy games like Kajabe Can-Can, Two Ball and the very popular White Bomb.  It’s a great experience!
