Rainbow River Scout Camp and Float Trip, Sept 10th-12th

Hi Troop,

I will be organizing this year’s camping and float trip to Rainbow River, Sept 10th-12th. We currently have 5 sites reserved (room for 40 scouts and adults). Please let me know if you are interested in attending. Since I have not participated in this trip in the past, I thought it would be helpful to hear from you all.

What worked?
What didn’t work?
What might you like to do differently?

We will be holding Tenderfoot mini-clinics and need one older scout to teach each of the following tenderfoot skills:
4a- Demonstrate how to whip and fuse the ends of a rope.
4b- Demonstrate you know how to tie the following knots and tell what their uses are: two half hitches and the taut-line hitch
5- Explain the rules of safe hiking, both on the highway and cross-country, during the day and at night. Explain what to do if you are lost.
6- Demonstrate how to display, raise, lower, and fold the American flag.
11- Identify local poisonous plants; tell how to treat for exposure to them.
12a- Demonstrate how to care for someone who is choking.
12b- Show first

My mom will be in town (Billy’s grandma)and that will be our last weekend with her before she goes back to CA. Sorry we won’t be able to attend.

Sounds like fun! Cody would be interested in going. We’ve been tubing down Rainbow River many times, but haven’t camped there.

Jim Dinsmore - July 20, 2010 - 2:04 pm

We have been several years and it’s always a good time. I remember last year, I saw an otter in the river while floating downstream. It was very cool.

If memory serves, we done a campout at the state park on several occasions. The only drawback to that has been the time necessary to get the coals hot. By making the decision to spend an extra night, it removes the time constraint to get back to Tampa on Saturday afternoon.

Our other learning was that the ranger locks the campgrounds at dusk. We were fortunate to stumble upon another group of campers that were opening the gate for family members and provided us with the combination to the lock. Otherwise, it would have been a bit of a hike (literally) carrying the gear in. It would make good sense to send a small advance team up to sign in before dusk on the Friday to prevent a recurrence of this potential problem.

Robbie and I plan to attend.
