Troop3/323 anual crossover outing
This annual outing is used to welcome new scouts into the troop. Held at Bumblebee Ranch, the kids camped in tents or hammocks while the adults had the option to stay in the ranch house for the outing. There were 26 scouts and 32 adults this year. The ranch is huge, equipped with a large field and a pond. The older scouts taught skills classes to the new scout. A group of scouts collected firewood for the big bonfire later that night. As the day progressed, the new scout patrol was created and a patrol leader was elected. The Blue foxes had their first patrol meeting, and soon enough, it was dark out. The crossover ceremony began with a large bonfire being lit, and the new scouts crossing over the rope bridge bridge. The bridge is a very important tradition, and it signifies a new scout crossing from the pack to the troop. This outing was fun for both new scouts, and older ones.
