  • Summer at Camp Meriwether Summer camp this year was at the beautiful Camp Meriwether, tucked away in a remote section of the Oregon Coast. The troop took up the largest campsite and took full advantage of the beautiful weather (well apart from one day) to use the Climbing Wall, practice metalworking, sandboarding, black powder rifles and a range of water sports in addition to assorted merit badges and rank advancements.The Scouts ranked highly in the Triathalon and the assorted inter-troop team games. The adults excelled at the chili and dessert cook-offs. There was even time for a beautiful hike up to the nearby Cape Lookout.

  • Wapiti Camporee at Evergreen Museum Once again, the Evergreen Museum in McMinnville hosted the Wapiti District Camporee. The Scouts came prepared after a pre-camporee campout with the skills to set up the tarp tents, KP station, dining areas and know exactly what is needed for a successful weekend camp. The food was excellent and though the weather did not cooperate the camp area stayed relatively mud free and earned the scouts the award for the best campsite.The Scouts (and some Adults) were able to work on a range of activities, from Tomahawk throwing through to outdoor skills. In the evening, the Evergreen Museum graciously opened their museum and IMAX Cinema, both of which were very much appreciated by all.

  • 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 ...
