The planning has begun for the Summer 2013 outings! This year the troop is putting together some awesome summer camps at Chief Logan and our own Gettysburg Adventure. However, there are also three high adventure options for those scouts looking for something more. If you are interested in any of the high adventure options, you need to get signed up in the next couple weeks.
- Chief Logan – Chief Logan Reservation is nestled among the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio and is a great scout camp for first time campers or those interested in mastering scouting skills and earning merit badges.
- Gettysburg Adventure – Gettysburg is celebrating it’s 150th anniversary this year and BSA Troop 365 is planning a special summer camp of our own to coincide with this event!
High Adventure Options
- Canoeing – Our destination will be the Namekagon River in northwest Wisconsin, a headwater to the St. Croix River. After canoeing 50 miles on the Namekagon, we’ll head to Munising, Michigan (in Michigan’s Upper Pensinsula) and explore the area around Pictured Rocks with some more canoeing or kayaking, hiking and swimming, even climbing some of the 500 foot high sand dunes on the shore of Lake Superior. We’re figuring on about 10 or 11 days, and are planning for sometime during late July. Contact Hike Hock (614.888.4703) for additional information.
- Philmont Scout Ranch – Boy Scouts of America’s largest national High Adventure Base, an unforgettable adventure in the high country along hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails. The council is starting to form crews and these slots will go quickly. Contact Steve Aspery (614.841.1846) for additional information.
- National Scout Jamboree – This will be the first jamboree at its new permanent home – The Summit, in beautiful West Virginia – and you’ll be there for the grand opening! Contact Steve Kirk (614.847.4447) for additional information.
