Raccoon Mountain, Caving, Chickamauga National Park October 30-31, 2014
Nineteen scouts and adult leaders left early Saturday morning, November 1, 2014 for the 3 1/2 hour drive to Raccoon Mountain near Chattanooga, TN. The trip was uneventful and we began to establish camp when we arrived. It was a windy, cool day and the scouts made quick work of putting up the shelter even though all the correct parts and panels were not packed.
Water Ski Trip at Parks Ferry, Lake Oconee Jul 30 - Aug 3, 2014
What a weekend! I can safely speak for Mr. Gilland, Mr. Warren, and Mr. Honeycutt when I say how proud I am of the 14 Scouts below that participated in the Water Sports Trip. Not only did they give us their best on the lake but they also gave their best in camp!
Wilderness Survival March 14-16, 2014
Upon arrival, our survivors under the direction of Ken S., were led into the hills to begin surviving for the weekend. The Base Campers unloaded the trailer, put up the large shelter and place other troop gear underneath, and were then allowed to pitch their tents and settle in.
CRM Summer Camp July 6, 2014
Arrived safely after lunch at Zaxbys in Clayton. Camping in Monroe area near dining hall. Check in was smooth due to great work by Mr kennedy, Mrs Eaton and Mrs tripp. After listening to several other leaders going thru check-in, getting flagged numerously for missing or incomplete forms, i am grateful for their work on the troop's behalf.
April 11-13 was the weekend for the joint climbing and hiking trip to Camp Rainey Mountain (CRM)
Friday was a good travel day up to CRM. When arriving at CRM, the climbers saw their objective for Saturday...the 50-foot (yes, that is a five and a zero!!) climbing tower. The unanimous response was "That is a lot taller than I thought!". Once settled into camp, there was not a lot of time to dwell on the fun that would be had over the next 2 days.
Trip Report: Elijah Clarke State Park, June 20:22, 2014
It’s hot. It’s vacation. It’s a week before summer camp. Despite some pretty good
reasons for staying home, 18 scouts and 6 adults packed up the trailer with enough
food to feed an army and caravanned east to the western shores of Lake Thurmond.
