Bring your overnight gear and a day pack for the hike up to Benson Lake. Pack your tent or check out a troop tent on departure as this trip will be one Scout to a tent unless family household related or hammock camping. Scott Lake is a primitive dry camp, so bring three personal liters of water to supplement the troop supply and don't forget the repellant, bathing suits, towels, and optional fishing gear.

Trail meals planned and prepared individually or buddy cooking in the groups formed at last Week's troop meeting. (Its just one overnight, so real food is always best, but consult the handout of trail meal suggestions from last week's troop meting.) Backpacking stoves will be taken and shared.

We have four adults going with a patrol sized group, but we could still add an extra Scout or two to the sign-up; if you would like to add or have questions, email rushhoag@comcast.net. Best practices to be observed for virus prevention, leave no trace, and safe swim defense.

A Special Message from Beckett Nelson on his Eagle Project:

I am looking for five to ten older scouts. We will be painting the Troop Garage. Our plan would be to work this Wednesday morning 8-12, July 22nd, and potentially Friday morning July 24th, 8-12 if needed. We need scouts who can apply extra care to ensure that the project is done with the highest quality.

You should wear clothing that can get paint on it and it is encouraged to wear a mask due to COVID 19. We will provide food and beverages. If you can bring an adult with you, that would be greatly appreciated as well. Please RSVP as soon as possible, more information will be provided.

Thank you,
Becket Nelson

Written work taken toward completions.

Signup and plans confirmed for this Thursday's outdoor activity of trout fishing at the Leaburg Lake on the Mckenzie River at the hatchery and EWEB Park. If this option should lack sufficient support, we can consider Saturday or Plan B which is trout fishing at the Junction City Pond, 92770 Highway 99S, Junction City. (However, last Thursday, the hike of Spencer's Butte was well attended.) An email after the troop meeting will confirm the final plan for those interested, but unable to attend the troop meeting.

Youth licenses (age 12-17) are available at Bi-Mart or similar for $10. Adult licenses are $44., Senior licenses (requires prior registration with ODFW) are $29., and Pioneer licenses are $6. (Should we lack sufficient support at the troop meeting to go out to Leaburg Lake on Thursday, we can consider Saturday or a Plan B to go to the Junction Pond.

Camping Ahead

Additional youth and adult signup will be taken for these camps at the troop meetings. Dr. Williams is available to assist with updating the camp medicals. Camp costs will be split between the Troop and the Scout Activity Allowances. This will include a nominal charge of $50. per Scout per camp for food and supplies plus any activity charges.

Camp begins Monday, July 20th at the 2 p.m. check in and concludes on Friday, July 24th at the 12 noon check out. The plan is for the Scouts to master Scout pioneering skills and earn the Pioneering Merit Badge with adventure activities on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. Adult support is needed, but since camp is just north of town, parents might alternate days.

  • Scott Lake Hiking Camp, August 3-7.
