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 […]
Advancement camp was a real head banging time, with lots of moving up by the younger scouts, and a nice hike in the middle of all of it, and then a nice bit of rain to finish it off, overall a success.
The Klondike derby was a riveting time. Our new scout team placed and experienced scouts did well this year. We had a lot of fun learning the importance of bringing extra clothes and not sticking tongues to frozen metal. Klondike was a fun time, with lots of playing in the snow and throwing snowballs. Klondike is held yearly in January at Ensign Ranch in Easton, WA. The event is based on the old Klondike days and consists of several stations where patrols/units must test their scout skills and their leadership abilities, earning points towards a total score. Often, one or more races are included while the Scouts navigate between stations.
Adam and I talked about the survival kit to each Webelos. We went over each piece. They wanted it – it was like a toy for them. With the new scouts, We really succeeded at having fun and learning new things. They seemed to really enjoy themselves. We played infection and capture the flag. The campfire was wasn’t that hot. The flames were mainly yellow. We had a fun time doing the skits. And we are not good at skits but it was fun. Everyone liked the hobo dinner. We like to pull pranks on each other. We were woke up by coyotes howling. That was cool. Traton
At the Klondike Derby in Easton, everyone had fun in the snow. We were able to work together as a team and get first place. We all wanted to win but that wasn’t the goal. Our second team was able to do the same and get third place. Everyone had fun overall! Traton
At the ape caves, we all had fun because we were able to climb all over the rocks. The weather was heavy rain, but we still able to have fun with the camp. Half of the group decided to climb Mt St Helens on Sunday. Snow, snow and more snow. Traton
