Summer Camp at Camp Pigott
The boys voted to go to Camp Pigott this summer which is located near Snohomish WA. Camp is the BEST WAY to earn badges and complete rank advancement!
Located at the foot of the Cascade Range, Camp Pigott features a large lake, a climbing tower, a spacious dining facility, beautiful new campfire bowl, COPE course, blacksmithing shop, plus all-new activities such as shotgun sports facilities, mountain bike skills course, and MUCH more. COPE courses (35 foot high and low) are non-linear in design so scouts can choose a variety of challenges and pathways. The 42' covered climbing tower has three climbing surfaces (including a real rock surface and overhang) and one, two-lane rappelling surface. There is a modern central building with indoor-outdoor fireplace, private showers, and each campsite features canvas tents on platforms or Adirondack shelters with bunks, and new flush toilet facilities.
The scouts arrive on a Sunday and leave the following Saturday morning.We will be booking camp once the canoe trip dates are set on January 2nd. Probably a week in early to mid July. The cost of camp is 275.00 and camperships are available. See Jennifer Fenske for details. We will need adults to commit to staying a night or more.
Sign up NOW! Deposits will be due when the reservation is confirmed in early 2015.

This summer the scouts from T325 went backpacking, hiked in the Cascades and Olympics, learned about local plants, helped paint dinosaurs, went swimming and fishing, learned new skills, cooked over campfires, helped with Eagle Scout projects, and went to summer camp at Camp Parsons on the Hood canal.
Eagle Scout candidate Jacob F. worked with the Shoreline Children's Center this summer to create new plywood painted dinosaurs for their preschool and daycare center. Jacob and his T325 crew worked 87 hours to cut, sand, paint and install the new panels in the outdoor playground.
At the June Court of Honor we celebrated 6 Boys achieving rank advancement, 2 "Fifty miler" patch recipients, and 21 merit badges were awarded. Merit badges earned were: Astronomy, Family Life, Fishing, Geology, Leatherwork, Personal Fitness and Photography. The next Court of Honor is in October of 2014.
