Troop 36 kicks off spring with campout

Friday afternoon, May 20, found Chester Troop 36 setting up camp in the Cave Campground next to Hat Creek just north of the town of Old Station. After a fine dinner of Spaghetti, garlic bread and fresh fruit, the boys settled down around the campfire to go over Saturday’s planned events. With temperatures dropping, everyone decided to adjourn to their sleeping bags a little early. Overnight lows were somewhere near 27 degrees and everyone agreed they had a chilly night’s sleep. A nice warming fire the next morning brightened up the day and after a breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes, bacon and eggs cooked by the Scouts it was time for some handbook work to finish up their rank requirements.
