First Class Trail Campout (April)

Posted on Sep 22 2022 - 5:50pm

We arrived on a Friday evening at Beals Point. We set up camp and put out all the supplies. The next day we cooked breakfast and some of the scouts were going to their stations to get their requirements done. A few hours later we cooked lunch. After lunch we went to our own patrols. In the night the Patrol leaders had a meeting. The next day some scouts went to the hike and the others went on the bike ride after we broke down camp.

Collins Lake Summary (March)

Posted on Sep 22 2022 - 5:47pm

We got there on Friday evening. We were setting up our tents and setting up camp and then went to bed. The camp was very rocky so it was hard to sleep for some people. The next day we had the fishing merit badge. Some people went to go do the merit badge. While others did rank advancement or other things. We learned about a lot of things and then we went to go fishing. Surprisingly only one person caught a fish. The next day we were breaking down camp and were ready to go home.

Point Reyes Training Hike- Cronan Ranch (March)

Posted on Sep 22 2022 - 5:43pm
It was quite windy there. I enjoyed it. Being there it was incredibly cool so no one had problems with heat. We had also walked on the beach there for a bit and saw many aquatic plants and animals. I would just recommend that people bring hats and face covering along with long sleeves as you would constantly get pelted by sand and debris that stung your exposed skin. When we were setting campsites the wind was annoying but tolerable so long as everyone worked together to set up the tents.
