Backpacking Trip to Pouch Camp


This Friday November 14th is our annual Backpacking Trip to Pouch Camp. It’s one of the most exciting and fun trips we have. On Friday night we all come to the meeting at regular time with our packs already packed. (use attached Checklist) No Uniforms.  We distribute all our food and equipment by Patrols and then into everyone’s pack. (We are not bringing Patrol Boxes) Next we will have a shakedown inspection of everyone’s equipment and pack. We then watch a movie hang out have some snacks and that night we sleep over in the lower church hall.  We wake up the next morning have bagels and OJ for breakfast and then hike the greenbelt blue trail to pouch camp. When we arrive at Pouch Camp we drop our packs eat lunch have some patrol competitions, some training, hang out, and then have a campfire. On Saturday night we sleep over in lean-tos so there are no tents to set up or take down and the next morning sometime after breakfast we hike back to the shed. Expect cooler temperatures this weekend so pack accordingly. Be sure to bring water bottles, cup, a bowl, and a spoon to eat with.

New to the Calendar: CPR and First Aid skills for civilian first responders.
