The TT will only be about 1/4 mile from the camp site, but the boys will never know it is there if all goes well.

We're using a facility owned by the former textile giant Springs Industries called Springmaid Mountain near Spruce Pine, NC. The TT will be in the small family campground on the property which has managed to stay below the rvparkreviews.com radar.

We currently have 30 participants signed up as of last night. Wish us well.

-Scott

Sounds like you have a great outing planned. Kudos to you for keeping the TT out of the picture!

Did your troop go to Ottari this year? Nice place.
Hope you have a great week. We went to Ottari and had scouts in five programs; the Brownsea Island program for new scouts, base camp for merit badges, Mountain Man, New River Adventure and a scout at the Claytor Lake Aquatics Base who took scuba. All in all it was a really good week.

Which camp will you be attending?

I was a cub when I was a kid. My son was a cub than a scout. I've camped with his scout group on several occasions. I remember going to Fire Mountain in Wa. State , 1200 scouts from all over the north west. My daughter was a girl guide. She wore a scarf given to her from gramma who got it from guides in England. She came to Canada on the Queen Mary during the war. She was just a teen than. My kids enjoyed camping with the scouts and guides. It sure toughened them up during the winter camps.

I know I'm a little late to this discussion, but I was a scout, Cubscout first (Bobcat and wolf...never made it to the Bear). Then, like Healthi, I was a Law Enforcement Explorer Scout (Post # 361). We would help the police officers at rodeo events, directing traffic at accidents, and every great now and then get to go on "ride alongs" with the officers. Our great reward, twice a year, was to go camping at one of the local state parks for a week...which did get interesting since we were a "co-ed" Troop! There was swimming with the gators one time, then another time swimming in Lake Livingston in the middle of February when it was only like 34 degrees outside...oh those were the days. I'm looking foward to getting my son started in the scouting tradition fairly soon...he already loves camping and fishing...think he'll love it!!!

He will love it, and you can start him out when he`s in first grade as a Tiger Cub Scout.

Was a scout in the late 50's early 60's. Became an adult leader in 1976 (Cubmaster). Have served as a Scoutmaster and Explorer Leader for some time and district & council positions. After retirement from the military in 1990 became a professional Scouter for 19years. Retired from BSA a couple years ago. Still active in the OA and currently the Council Venturing Chairman. Also do NRA training and shooting sports for the council.
Two Eagle Scout son's and grandson working on Eagle.
Sleeping on the ground and in a tent has taken it's toll. Have given that up.
