Forest Park Hikes/Troop Meeting, Tuesday, 5/19/20 at 7:00 pm - Family Life MB

Posted on May 16 2020 - 10:03pm

Well done to all Scouts who were able to complete the 10 and 15 mile hikes on Saturday!  We were able to successfully avoid the heavy rains and mostly successful in avoiding the traffic on Leif Erikson.  The two hiking groups were even able to overlap for a while for a little camaraderie after weeks(for most) of not seeing each other in person.  This week, the Troop will continue with the Family Life Merit Badge on Tuesday and also take in a competitive game of Pictionary.  Again, we recognize that there may be some disappointment with the cancellation of camp, but we will find some outdoor opportunities to gather as a troop this summer.  Hope all of you are doing well!  

Camp Pioneer Summer Camp Cancelled

Posted on May 16 2020 - 7:16am

Unfortunately, the Cascade Pacific Council announced yesterday that all summer camps in the Council will be cancelled.  https://cpcbsa.org/council/news/important-summer-camp-updates/?fbclid=IwAR2oMZzu95TwAAtiYtBH5Zo2OYH80GG7mL3O4Aft619uyWCW33XHcfFgD0k.  I appreciate all of excitement that both our Scouts and families have had about summer camp, and I realize that this will be a disappointment to them. The Council had been discussing ways to keep things moving forward but uncertainty about the future status of the COVID 19 pandemic and the need to plan ahead for camp personnel and logistics were not compatible. Governor Brown's latest guidance yesterday would not allow large summer camps to continue. Leslie Bray is working to refund all camp payments by next week.  The Troop Committee will be meeting to discuss potential outdoor options for the week that we have currently planned for summer camp and send out word as soon as possible.

Hikes in Forest Park!/Virtual Campout Postponed

Posted on May 14 2020 - 6:11am

Time to get outside and get some fresh air in Portland's own Forest Park!  The Troop will hold some hikes of varying lengths this Saturday depending on the needs of each Scout for the Hiking merit badge and the availability of adults to help lead the various hikes.  Please see the attached spreadsheet for the documented hikes that have been completed by each Scout.  The plan is to meet at Upper Macleay Trailhead on NW Cornell Road and hike along Wildwood Trail to the Leif Erickson Drive.  We will hike in groups of no more than six with two adults and four Scouts to allow for social distancing. Leif Eriksen Drive is a wide gravel road and the Wildwood Trail is less populated north of Cornell Road. Scouts can choose a five mile, ten mile or fifteen mile option depending on how many hikes they have completed up to this point.   Please register on the event page.  The virtual campout will be postponed until June due to weather forecasts.
