Scout Day was held at the Sierra Adult Educational Center on Sat the 14th. Here are some pictures from that day.
These are all of our pictures from Primitive camp with 16 kids and 7 parents
Two new scouts have bridged into our troop named Ben and Alex, our troop is very happy that these scouts have ascended in scouting and have progressed in our troop
Here we are, still alive and kicking! This picture was taken by Maria Espinoza at the end of our hike... sans backpacks of course. The scouts performed very well during the day and kept us in stitches at night.
The Hole in the Wall Backpacking trip is near! February 7th to the 9th scouts that sign up will have an option to either hike option A or B. If you son is going on option A the first day you will be hiking 12 miles the next day is 4 miles then the last day is 8 miles that is approximately 22 miles. If your son is hiking option B then the first day will be 12 miles the next day 8 miles and the last day 10 miles that is approximately 30 miles in all.
29 Palms Primitive Camp is just around the corning in mid January and I'm told it's something every scout should experience (parents too).
