Camp Wolfeboro 2022!

This week of 7/10, our troop went to the 5th week of Camp Wolfeboro!

Overall, this trip was a blast, and we did all sorts of things and earned tons of merit badges.

We shot at the range, cooked spaghetti over a fire, made dumpcake in a dutch oven, won the lanyard contest and the chess tournament, and each of us did extra things we loved!

I went swimming a ton and played chess and met a bunch of staff that I realized went to the same school as me!

Walt caught a lizard, frog, water snake, bee, wasp, and some fish! (wow) etc..

Looking forward to Wolfeboro 2023!

Camporee 2022 on 4/30!

On April 29th to May 1st, our troop attended Camporee 2022 at Lake Berryessa!

We merged the Hawks and Ravens patrol and competed in a bunch of activities like first aid, orienteering, obstacle course, and monkey bridge.

For the cord on blue cooking competition, we submitted grilled cheese and hot dogs! Admittedly, we didn’t prepare a lot for it, but there’s always next year.

We also saw a few rattlesnakes around our campground…

10/15 Mile hike along Wildcat Canyon Trail

Sunday on April 17th, we went on a 15 mile hike along Wildcat Canyon Trail!

We started off meeting at the trailhead parking lot and hiked 15 miles through various loops. After 5 miles, scouters doing the 10 mile hike turned back at a loop point.

We eventually made it to Inspiration point where we had our lunch, and then continued off a different trail to take a look at Lake Anza. It was covered with a fern at this time of year, and we were all surprised when we saw it. It looked like a flat meadow!

After that, we looped back and got to Little Farm, and hiked past Jewel Lake all the way back to our cars. Our legs were a bit sore, but we now have a (another, in same cases) 15 mile hike under our belts!
