Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life

Camping/Hiking Trip

The past weekend we went to Sky Meadows State Park which is about an hour away from were we meet for troop meetings.  The views there were breath taking.  The First thing we had to do was hike a mile to get to our campsite.  The next thing we did when got there was set ups our tents.  After eating lunch we went on a 5 mile hike that went past 2 great views and went on the Appalachian Trail.  On the Appalachian Trail we met many people and lots of those people had dogs, with the recent rain and then very nice weather it was no wonder that they were out hiking just like we were.  When we got back we filtered water from the stream running right past our campsite.  The dinner was delicious but we didn’t have the proper amount of food so the scouts had the prepared food and the adults some freeze dried food that another parent brought just in case.  In the morning we ate a quick meal of pop tarts and oat meal.  Soon after we packed up our stuff, walked the mile back to the cars and then went home.

Here are some pictures from our Hike and Campout: Dropbox

P.S.  Happy Pi Day.

Court of Honor 2/4/16

We had a great court of honor with many rank advancements and merit badges.  Our Master of Ceremonies did great and the audience of family and friends was the best to be seen in a while.
