This is our Annual Water Bottle Event we do every year as a meeting activity. It is typically the favorite of all the scouts and parents.
A group of four older scouts and one adult spent their week at camp doing Camp Fife’s High Adventure program. They had a great time backpacking, canoe camping, climbing and hanging together.
Our Camp Leaders found time to have fun too!
On Wednesday’s Camp Fife gives Troops a free day to go adventuring around the area. Today, our Troop decided to visit to Boulder Cave and fish on Bumping Lake. Boulder Cave was formed by Devil Creek. There is a short hike up to the cave. The walk through is short and it flashlight helps a person find their way through. Bumping Lake is located close to the camp. It is where all the water sport merit badges, minus swimming and scuba, take place.

In addition to learning how to safely ride and care for horses, Scouts who earn this Merit Badge will gain an understanding of the instincts and behaviors of horses and humane & effective methods to train them. Camp Fife is the only Boy Scout Camp in Washington State to offer this merit badge.
On July 16th, our troop went to Camp Fife, located near Mt. Rainier. While we were at camp, the scouts were completing merit badges that they taught at the camp. A good chunk of our troop did the rifle merit badge and we all had a blast. We all learned valuable lessons about gun safety and how to use and take care of a rifle. In addition to that, Camp Fife is the only camp in Washington state that provides the horsemanship merit badge. Me and some of the other scouts in our troop and it was a very fun merit badge to take. The horses all had their own unique personalities which made learning the merit badge a bit difficult and slightly scary at times, but we still had lots of fun. Overall, our trip to Camp Fife this year was probably my favorite summer camp out of all […]
