I wanted to let you know that we collected 1,317 pounds of food during our Scouting For
We have the best Troop!
Wards ranch was from 2/10/13 to 2/11/13 at the Ward family’s private ranch. All scouts are invited to attend this camp out. Also weblos and another troop were invited to attend as well. This camp out is popular among the scouts because it is our shooting camp out At Wards Ranch scouts could shoot .12 gauge shotguns at clay pigeons and .22 rifles at targets. This camp out also offers a lot of free time to do things like football, manhunt, tag, and other games. Some of the older scouts were in the pavilion playing a card game called Capitalism why other scouts were playing football or shooting. This camp out is especially fun for scouts who have never shot a shotgun or rifle before. During the shotgun shooting we had a 10 minute break to clean up clay pigeons and shotgun shells. At this part of the day we almost had an incident were we had almost started to shoot while there was a scout still out in the 4-5 foot high weeds. Luckily no one was hurt and it was a successful camp out. Mr. Bejos then cooked dinner before most of the scouts enjoyed a good game of Manhunt. The next morning Mr. Bejos cooked breakfast and everyone started to pack up and police the area. It was a very successful camp out and I would recommend that all scouts attend.

The winter hike was from 1/12 – 1/14 at the Withalacochee state park. All scouts are invited to attend this camp out. We hiked 10 miles the first day in about 80*F to get to our campsite. Overall it was a success, all the newer scouts did excellent with only a few needing temporary assistance. Once we got there we purified some water from the river using an assortment of gear including SteriPens,Gravity filtration systems, and iodine tablets. Once we filtered our water we went back to camp to rest. The next day we did a cleanup and some of us went to the ‘Baby Grand Canyon’ while the rest just waited at the campsite. The scouts who went to the ‘Baby Grand Canyon’ walked around an extra 3 miles (round-trip and without packs.) When the scouts who went to the ‘Baby Grand Canyon’ came back we hiked about 100 yards to apart in the river we were going to cross. We had Mr. Friedlander walk across the river with a rope to mark the path. Then some of the older scouts spread out at intervals in the river to help keep the others on the path. Once the newer scouts had made it across safely the older scouts and adults hauled backpacks across the river to redistribute to their owners. We then hiked about another mile to get to the cars. It was a very fun and successful trip.

We have a confirmed reservation for Week 4 of summer camp: June 22-29, 2013.
Mountain Man is a two-hour program held every morning all week. Scouts are instructed in the following skill areas: woods tools, meal preparation and cooking, pioneering, knots, orienteering, nature, first aid, and outdoor citizenship. In addition, scouts should participate in a five- mile hike, on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening. All Mountain Main participants will receive a “Mountain Man” t-shirt and a special patch to commemorate their week at camp. This t-shirt and patch are given out to those Scouts completing the program at graduation on Friday.
Participants in the Mountain Man Program should bring following items for program purposes:
One Afternoon during the week, scouts can choose from one of three adventure outings; Nantahala Whitewater Rafting, horseback riding, or Ocoee Whitewater rafting. The Ocoee River trip is a more advanced whitewater experience consisting of category III-IV rapids. Camp Woodruff guidelines require that only youth 13 and older with two previous trips on the Nantahala or a similar river participate on the Ocoee due to the more physically and mentally strenuous demands of the trip.
If you (scouts only) would like to attend 2013 Summer Camp,
Payments include camp fees, camp meals, bus & 3 transportation day meals. All scouts pay for bus and meals regardless.
