What did your unit do to get outdoors this past weekend?


Recommended Posts

This past weekend was a District Cub Family Campout...   So, the boy Troop and girl Troop helped staff.  Meaning, we helped run the various activities during the day.  Otherwise, it was a pretty typical weekend campout.

 

I flew a kite on Saturday,.  :)

We went up Mt San Gorgonio, which is the highest mountain in Southern California, about 11500 ft. Despite planning a 3 day trip the kids decided they wanted to compress it into 2 days:

(miles are total/cumulative, not per section, height is altitude not height gained)

Day 1: Trailhead (0 miles, 6880 ft) to junction to campsite (about 5.5 miles, 9520 ft). Dumped packs, took daypacks to summit (9.5 miles, 11502 ft) and back to campsite (14.0 miles, 9220 ft).

Day 2 Campsite (14.0 miles, 9220 ft) to Trailhead (19.5 miles, 6880 ft)

Winds at the summit 30mph gusting to 50mph. Strong enough to be unpleasant but not to push you around. Sheltered at the campsite, though sounded like an express train all night.

Earned the San Gorgonio Climb award from the local High Adventure Team.

7 Scouts, aged 11 through 17. 2 Adults. All did great including the huge day 1.
