In case you missed it, Storm reminded everyone to check out the Camp Melakwa Youth Guide. In it you will find what to pack, what to expect and a schedule of activities offered. It might be a good thing to print out to bring with you.
Just a quick share of a PDF on rockhounding in the area around Prineville: http://visitprineville.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/SKMBT_C55214021214361.pdf
This past weekend Troop 28 camped at Mineral Campground, near Cottage Grove, Oregon. The boys had a great time playing in the snow up in the mountains, going for hikes and learning to use an axe among many other things.
This year’s Contraband Camp was held at a cabin near Mapleton, Oregon. Late nights, electronics and junk food (and a warm fire)… who could ask for more?
In our most recent Court of Honor, we happily accepted Alex into the ranks and awarded him the rank of Scout. Additionally, the Viking troop earned the Second Class AND First Class ranks! All of the boys who attended Camp Baldwin received the merit badges that were earned during Summer Camp.
On November 11th, the boys were asked to be in the VFW’s Flag Ceremony honoring veterans at the Creswell City Hall. It was an honor for the boys to be included in this special ceremony.
