On the 9th we distributed Scouting-For-Food bags and then went back a week later on the 16th to pick them up. The troop collected a total of 4405 items the largest number in the district.
After distributing bags on the 9th a total of 15 scouts travelled to Los Moches for a one night Survival Campout. After unloading our gear we backpacked to our campsite and then several groups set off to explore the back country. We discovered a stage, various trail markers, and a sign for Aqua Mesa. This trip re-kindled an interest to discover more about the long forgotten hiking trails at Los Moches.
After the bag pickup on the 16th we conducted a troop Junior Leader Training (JLT) class taught by the older scouts at Los Moches. This was an opportunity for the recently elected and appointed junior leaders to learn leadership skills.
