The troop had a great weekend of camping at Joshua Tree National Park. The camp location was terrific, the weather perfect, and the scouts preparation flawless. Last weekend confirmed what I already knew – being involved in scouting provides experiences not found in any other youth program.
The group arrived late on Friday night, setup camp, and quickly fell asleep. On Saturday the climbing instructors got an early start and setup 2 climbing and 1 repelling routes. Many thanks to Troop 682 for allowing us to setup climbing routes in their campsite. Scouts, siblings and adults enjoyed climbing and exploring the area around the camp. After dinner, scouts made 3 different dutch oven desserts then told jokes and sang songs around the campfire.
This was the troop’s second year at Joshua Tree and we’ll be back next year.
