April 2023 Beginners Backpacking trip to Hackberry creek

HackBerry Springs

On April 15-16 Troop 323, and Troop 3323 had their beginners backpacking trip for the scouts who just crossed at the last outing. Prior to the trip, the troops prepared the new by showing how backpacking was different from car camping, and how to pack a backpack. However, there is no better way to learn than just going out and experiencing it for yourself. The new scouts along with the troop hiked 1.5 miles to the camping spot, learned how to set up their tents, and cooked a yummy meal of tortellini. It was a hot weekend, but that didn’t discourage anyone, it was a successful outing and no new scouts were scared from the experience, so I call that a win.

March 2023 Crossover Outing

The new scout patrol, the eagles, has seven new scouts five of which are in troop 323, and the other two in 3323. These new scouts learned a bunch of new skills from personal fitness to tying knots to building fire! The evening persisted of the crossover ceremony, the flag retirement ceremony, dad jokes and delicious cobbler. Overall it was another successful crossover outing.

Conner Perdue Eagle Project

On Friday March 11 through Saturday March 12 Troops 3/323 came together with other scouts to help Connor Perdue completed his eagle project, bringing him one step closer to earning the Eagle Rank. Several volunteers gathered at Saint Mark’s Lutheran Church to assist Conner with his project. Conner’s project was to create a concrete trash pad for the Church. Scouts dug out an area for the pad to go and scattered all of the excess dirt. They assisted in creating the forms for the slab. Finally Around 9:30 AM on Saturday a small concrete truck came and poured the concrete. Now it just needs to cure and the Church will have a trash pad that it will be able to use for years!

Feb 2023 Ski Outing

The ski trip is a classic for troops 323 and 3323,

The Troop has done this favorite outing for the last several years, and as always it was a smashing success. The troop left Friday February 10 to drive up to Flagstaff to spend a fun weekend skiing in Snow Bowl. The troop had lots of fun, there were some first time skiers who had never hit the slopes and some veteran scouts who already had their ski legs…. Or would you say snow legs.
This year the troop got to stay in the army barracks at  Camp Navajo located near the ski resort.
