Summer Camp

Next week, Troop 28 is going to Summer Camp at Melakwa (here is their Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/Melakwa & their website: http://www.campmelakwa.org/)!

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.

Mineral Camp Video

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.

Shopping List

This isn’t a very interesting post, but it is one that I think will be useful moving forward.  After a brainstorming session around the campfire last weekend, we found that we needed better organization of the shopping list to help our Shoppers pick up food for camping expediently.  I created the PDF document below where we can make our shopping list broken down into areas of our local WinCo grocery store and have included the store map.

Contraband Camp

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?
