Wilderness Survival Campout 8/5-8/6

Posted on Aug 19 2017 - 5:06pm
The wilderness survival campout started on Saturday August 5 and ended Sunday August 6. On Saturday morning we carpooled up to the Yuba camp to begin our campout. We arrived at around 8 in the morning and started our activities. Participants in the Merit Badge had to complete several requirements, each of which we had stations for, including a fire building station, a purifying water station, and a first aid/ signaling/ survival tools station. When the scouts finished up with those stations, it was time to build their shelter. They gathered pine needles, sticks, and logs and started construction. We took a break to swim in the camp pool, but by the time the sun set, everyone’s shelter was completed. The scouts then had a lovely nights rest without any pillows or blankets. In the morning, we ate some bagels and left.
