    Taum Sauk Campout
    Taum Sauk/Johnson Shut-ins State Parks
    September 28-30, 2012

    Scouts enjoyed close-up views of some of the most scenic and rugged areas Missouri has to offer.
    We camped Friday and Saturday night on Taum Sauk Mountain. Saturday morning we hiked the Mina Sauk Falls Trail and a section on the Ozark Trail to The Devil's Tollgate. Saturday afternoon we took a side trip to Johnson Shut-Ins State Park. Sunday the troop attended mass at St. Marie Du Lac in Ironton.

    The water sculpted igneous rhyolite rock at Johnson Shut-ins was formed over a billion years ago during the Precambrian era through a series of violent volcanic eruptions.

    Onondaga State Park
    Leasburg, MO
    August 25 & 26, 2012

    20 scouts and adults/ family members camped overnight Saturday at Onondaga State Park and 28 participated in the canoe float/river cleanup.

    It began raining Saturday afternoon and continued as we attended 4:00pm mass at St. Francois’s Church in Bourbon, Mo. On returning to our campsite the rain picked up. We set up a dining fly to cook under. The hamburgers tasted pretty good, even in the rain. The much needed rain had another positive effect. All night (loud) live music had been scheduled right across the river, by a St. Louis radio station. The music had been cancelled because of the weather. The night (and early morning) was peaceful. I could hardly believe our good fortune. (Click on "Read More" below for more text and photos.)

    Camp Famous Eagle
    Knob Lick, MO

    Continued from Summer Camp Part 1.
    All participated at the camp water carnival Wednesday evening. The water carnival included competition in events such as sand castle building, paddle board racing, ninja, Viking canoe racing, kayak racing, sand bucket relay and glow stick dive. Nick M won the kayak race by a huge margin. Nick B, Ben, Chris, Alex D, Kyle and Alex S won the Viking canoe race. Michael won the first heat of the paddle board race and finished second overall. I think everyone agreed that Mr. Menteer showed the best form in the Scoutmaster belly flop contest.

    Camp Famous Eagle
    Knob Lick, MO


    23 scouts, 6 full time adults and 2 part time adults attended Camp Famous Eagle at S-F Ranch the week of June 10-16, 2012. This was the first week of this year’s summer camp season and our first day was spent raking leaves, clearing weeds and setting up tents. After completing the medical recheck the troop took the swim test and then received the camp orientation tour. In the evening we were served the (in)famous spaghetti dinner and later attended the opening campfire. Several scouts noticed that the mosquitos and gnats were worse at night than they had been in previous years possibly due to the early warm season we experienced. Nights like this build character.

    We all enjoyed a great spring weekend of fishing and camping. The weather was exceptional and the fishing was even better. Chris caught the first fish Friday evening and Mr. Hoffmann caught the first fish on Saturday. Allen S. caught the largest fish and won a cool pocketknife. On Saturday morning the boys caught over 50lbs of fish as shown in the group photo. These fish were kept and prepared for dinner. All fish caught during the rest of the trip were released.

    Troop NewsEarth Day Tree Bagging Project
    Columbia Bottom Conservation Area
    North St. Louis County
    April 21, 2012


    Troop 161 assisted the Missouri Department of Conservation again this year to prepare 1200 dogwood tree seedlings for the St. Louis Earth Day Festival. This service project took place at the department’s Columbia Bottom Conservation Area at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers in North St. Louis County. The tree seedlings arrived from MDC’s nursery in Licking, MO in bundles of 200.

    After the bundles are cut apart, the seedlings are separated. The root of each seedling is individually wrapped in paper, dipped in water and then the seedling is inserted into a plastic bag. The bag is then stapled closed with planting suggestions attached. The project took about 2 hours to complete. Thanks to all that participated.
