Outings: 

Great camping and hiking event for our troop. August 24th, 2019. We will hike and camp at the rugged and beautiful Crystal Cove and the camping is called Lower Morro Camp. This will be a primitive hike, meaning that we will hike in all our gear plus water. Everything that we need has to be carried in. This is a great chance to work on some of your cooking requirements for merit badge and also rank advancement.  Also all trash needs to be carried out.

 

More details regarding tents and gear required will be coming once we get some signups.

 

We will leave from Pico Cyn. Park 6:00AM Sat. morning August 24th and return Sunday morning. The cost for this will depend on how many scouts sign up however the cost to reserve is $34.00 with tax, for 4 people so it is not that much. Signup Genius

 

Please check out the website to see all the amazing things we can do at crystalcove.org. I am trying to arrange a tide pool guide but if we do not get that we can still go and see the tide pools and spend the day at the beach. Any further questions you can contact SM Mary Ostlund maryostlund@oldglorytroop499.com
