  • Canoeing on the Willamette, September 2013 The Troop's first canoeing trip in several years was a great success. We canoed for two days, staying the night on a bar on the side of the river. It was nice all day, but gave us some showers while we were trying to make dinner. All turned out great, though. In the evening, we had perhaps the most beautiful moon rise that I've ever seen, coming up into steel-grey clouds. On the second day, the river was mostly a little slower, but in some places was faster. We did learn a lesson in being familiar with the pull-out point. Not recognizing it, we paddled right past the pull-out, turning a 20-mile trip into ...

  • Rocket Camp at Camp Clark March may not be the best time of the year to visit the Oregon beaches, but the Troop showed their mettle. Even though it rained for most of the weekend, Rockets were launched, fun was had, and smiles were everywhere as the boys watched their creations head for the stars...if only for a few moments.

  • Climbing at Club Sport! The theme for the month was climbing, so the Troop planned an outing to Club Sport's climbing wall. It was both an adventure in itself and preparation for our 2nd annual climbing outing to HorseThief Butte in May. Before the outing, Mr. Davis gave belay training to 3 adults and 4 youth and they all got belay certified at Club Sport. Now, we have our own belay team!

  • Nanitch Lodge, Mt. Hood Feb 2014 The Troop spent the weekend at Nanitch Lodge on the slopes of Mt. Hood. On Sat, we went up early and went sledding on Boy Scout Ridge at White River snow park. Even though it was raining lightly the whole time, not a complaint was heard. Everyone headed out and had a great time sledding, building snowmen (Mr. D, we know that was you!), and digging holes in the snow. It was a blast and everyone had fun. That evening, went to the lodge and spent the evening playing games and enjoying each other's company. Overnight, we were blessed with 6-10 inches of new snow, so we, of course, sent tubing on the hill in front of the ...

  • National Chief Nick Dannemiller earns Triple Crown for OA High Adventure By Stephen Hamm Most Scouts consider themselves lucky to attend one of the four high adventure bases owned by the Boy Scouts of America. However, all Arrowmen are given nearly unrestricted access to these camps through the Order of the Arrow High Adventure programs. The 2014 National Chief, Nick Dannemiller, took advantage of this opportunity by earning the Triple Crown Award while he was a section officer. To date, Triple Crown has been a coveted award offered to Order of the Arrow members who attend the high adventure program at the three national high adventure bases: OA Wilderness Voyage or Canadian Odyssey at Northern Tier in Ely, Minnesota, the OA Trail Crew at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico ...
