Yosemite Valley Backpack

Posted on Jul 9 2019 - 12:03pm

Dear Troop 636,

As of last week 8 of our scouts and 3 Adults went on a 3 night - 4 day backpacking trip through Yosemite Valley. This Backpacking trip totald to be 22 miles. Before we set out on our 22 mile pack we camped at a campsite near mirror lake. It was beautiful there with El Cap and Half Dome in sight. After that on we set out for our backpack but on the way to the trailhead we stopped at a Half Dome Viewpoint. Then after we admired half dome we were off. Our first destination was Ostrad Lake, about 6 miles from the trailhead. On our way there was saw lush forest, rivers, burnt forest, and snow up on the mountains. It was very uphill on the way to ostrad lake but everyone trudged up in a timely manner. When we got to the lake it was beautiful. The scouts fished, sat around the fire and admired the lake. But the next day came and it was time to leave. This day, the 3rd day, was a hefty 8 miles downhill from Ostrad Lake to Deer Camp. It was a beautiful trail with lush meadows and some great viewpoints over the valley. Once we arrived at Dear Camp everyone's feet were done, for the Elevation decrease was 8500 to the bottom of the valley. Once camp was set up scouts hung around the creek and talked around the fire. Then sadly the final 4th day came. It was from Deer camp to the road out. A 6 mile trail . On our way we trekked through completely destroyed trails, and fast flowing rivers (which some scouts unfortunately took a dip in). But eventually we got to the road. We were done and all we had to do was find the cars (which was a harder task than you would think). We got all of our gear in the car, got some food, shared out rose bud and thorns and headed home. Yosemite Valley was an overall awesome trip for the books.

Effective immediately BSA has changed the requirements for registered adults camping with scouts. Adults going on campouts of 72 hours or longer must have leader specific online training, in-person Introduction to Outdoor Skills training, youth protection training, and registered at council as an adult volunteer. Please note that in our troop we only pay for adult registration for voluteers that are active participants on the assistant scoutmaster team, or have a position on the committee. After our May Court of Honor we will briefly discuss this.
