    22 scouts and 9 fathers attended Discovery Camp this year. Discovery camp is the first opportunity for our new scouts to camp with the troop and learn some of the basics of camping and cooking using the patrol method. The weather Friday was cold, cloudy and windy. The average temperature of 36 degrees was about 13 degrees below the normal for this time of year. Snow started about noon on Saturday and continued several hours past sunset. Total snowfall measured between 4 and 5 inches. Besides the regular meals prepared by each patrol, Mr. Hoffmann and Mr. DiMercurio prepared fried catfish, hushpuppies and French fries on Friday night for all to share. Mr. Sandroni baked a Dutch oven apple dump cake Saturday night for all to share. It was all delicious. (Click on read more below for more photos and text.)

    March 11 - 13, 2011


    Some of our Philmont bound scouts and scouters spent a gorgeous March weekend backpacking a portion of the scenic Courtois Section of the Ozark Trail in the Huzzah Conservation Area south of Leasburg, MO. Starting at the Ozark Outdoors trailhead (see "A" on map) on Saturday, they backpacked about 5 1/2 miles through the rugged forest terrain to the primivite campgrounds (see "D" on map) on Courtois Creek. The Huzzah Conservation Area is home to 6255 acres of state forest. The area also features the Meramec River, the Huzzah and Courtois Creeks. The remains of the Scotia charcoal iron furnace (see "C" on map) built in 1870 can also be found near the trail. (Click on read more below for more photos and text.)

    Castlewood State Park, Ballwin, MO

    A large group of 15 scouts and 10 adults hiked the 3 1/4 mile River Scene Trail at Castlewood State Park. It was raining as we drove to the park. The ground at the park was soggy from the 1 - 2 inches of rain we had just received overnight. Once at the park the rain stopped. The temp was about 40 degrees, the sky cloudy and the air damp. Still the hike was a success and enjoyed by most. (Click on read more below for more photos and text.)

    West Tyson County Park

    7 scouts and 6 adults braved the snowstorm Sunday morning and were rewarded with an excellent hike through the snow covered hills of West Tyson Park. We hiked about 5 miles on the Chubb Trail. This trail is rated difficult and the 5” snowfall made it even more challenging. Halfway through our hike we stopped and prepared a hot lunch of chicken and noodles. Hot chocolate was also enjoyed by all. After lunch we continued about a ¼ mile on the Flint Quarry Trail and then stopped and returned the same way we came.
