A great opportunity for incoming Scouts to start off their Scouting career with a bang, and for returning Scouts to complete the last few items on their First Class Trail.  It is also a great opportunity for “Star Scouts” to fulfill the “EDGE” training requirements for “Life”, and all Scouts to just have some fun.

Grover Hot Springs Campout Summary

Posted on Mar 6 2018 - 9:38am

The Grover Hot Springs was a campout up in South Lake Tahoe run by Ethan Huff and Evan Clinton. Even though there were was no snow when we went, we still had lots of fun. We visited a hot spring near the campground and swam in it, and it was hot. We also played games like wiffle ball and glow-in-the-dark night frisbee. We also teamed up with another troop from Sacramento county and had a really fun Camp Fire. One day we went on a hike to see many waterfalls, one was even frozen solid. We had a lot of adventures and fun, making this campout one to remember.

This year, we have two summer camp options and they are spaced apart so that you can do both!. Wente Scout Reservation is about three hours away, near the town of Willits.Wente offers a chance to backpack, sail, mountain bike, fish, ride horses, and go rock climbing all in one week. Scouts may try their hand at black powder musket firing, kayaking and rappelling. Expert instruction in popular outdoor skill merit badges will make the Scoutcraft area come alive. Wente is rich in wildlife and allows for the study of conservation, re-forestation, wildlife management, woodcraft and nature study. Rifle, shotgun, and archery shooting are also popular activities.

The tall Douglas Fir and golden meadows spell adventure for the Unit that likes to rough it and test their skills. The 80-acre lake is great place for swimming, sailing, boating, and canoeing, and it is considered one of the warmest lakes in the state. The lake also offers some prime fishin' with many trophy bass caught by both the expert and novice angler.

Merit badge options or activities in 2017 included Movie Making, Cooking , lifesaving, Space Exploration, Horsemanship (those 14+ by summercamp), Mining and Society, Pulp and Paper, Climbing, Fishing, Fly Fishing, and activities such as black powder shooting, and their Trail to Eagle, where Scouts can work on Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class Requirements.

Mark your calendars and look for registration details coming soon.
