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.

New Requirements for Adults Camping with Scouts - Effective Immediately

Posted on May 15 2019 - 6:32am

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.

Noah Boihem's Eagle Scout Service Project

Bailey Cortright's Eagle Project

Posted on Nov 5 2017 - 8:13pm

Hello everyone, 

My Eagle Scout Project is scheduled for Saturday November 18th at 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM at the Tesoro High School Sustainability Garden (1 Tesoro Creek Road; it is on campus bordering the back lot).
The project will consist of removing grass in the Tesoro Sustainability Garden and replacing it with a drought tolerant succulent garden with a path that will meander through the new garden. This will reduce maintenance of the area and serve as a teaching tool to the Environmental Science Students.
Bring sunscreen and water. Breakfast and possibly lunch will be provided. If you would like to bring your own tools you may, but we will have a fair amount of tools on site.

All volunteers are welcome to help on this project.

Colin Ditzler's Eagle Project

Posted on May 22 2017 - 6:35am

Yesterday, 19 Scouts and adults came to Boy’s Town to help me complete my Eagle Project.  We built 100’ of Wood Rail Fencing and fixed another 200’, staining all 300’. Everyone worked very hard and we completed it earlier than expected and before the extreme heat of the day arrived.  I want to thank everyone who helped and contributed to my project and I especially want to thank the Dads of former Troop 636 Scouts and a few of our Troop Eagle  Scouts for helping and setting a great example for always giving back and helping others.
