Canoe Overnight Campout October 5-6, 2014
Posted by: Charlie Brown - 10/08/14 @ 9:07PM
 We all had a wonderful adventure on the canoe trip. The weather was good in the low 70s.  The first day we started out on the Rapidan River and all the scouts did well .. no tips except when they meant to!  The campsite at the confluence with the Rappahannock River was already taken but we went right across the river and got a great one with a better firepit.  Day 2 was from the confluence which has many rocks so we had to get out of our canoes several times. Rest of trip was fairly flat but did have a couple tricky Class 2 rapids which the kids all liked.  Check out the pics in the photo gallery.

Devil's Marble Yard Campout
Posted by: Charlie Brown - 11/15/13 @ 7:23PM

Ok the troop headed south to Natural Bridge, VA area to hike the Devil's Marble Yard last weekend, November 15-19.  We arrived to rain and setup in rain, not fun but we persevered.  The rained stopped so we could hike the Marble Yard.  For more info about the marble yard, go to this link.
No incidents so a very good trip for all.  And some good cooking too!

Fall Camporee 2013
Posted by: Charlie Brown - 10/16/11 @ 12:57AM

The troop had a good time at the Fall Camporee and placed second runner-up for the Commissioner's Cup! The theme was Wilderness Survival. There were stations for building shelters, wilderness first aid and making survival bracelets. Also, the Stafford County Search and Rescue Team was there setting up a search for a victim using grid search patterns. The weather was great with a slight cool in the air and NO RAIN! Everyone had a good time. Click HERE or on the image for photo album¬†
