Green Valley Camp

The first Troop 774 camp of the year was at Green Valley in Cuyamaca State Park.
The highlights:

  • 6 mile hike along the Monument Trail to the airplane monument then up to the saddle near Jamacha Peak; downhill from there back to camp.
  • The patrols had their first event and did great!
  • Awesome meals for the dutch oven competition.
  • Great skits at the campfire.
  • One casualty during Totin' Chip axe training :(
  • Fun time at the falls

San Clemente Island trip

Bengt, Lucas and Evan from Troop 774 took a snorkeling/fishing trip to "forbidden" San Clemente Island.
The boat ride was over 4 hours in each direction.  Going there was fine but coming back was a bit boring, especially when the sun when down.
We did some snorkeling near the shore and the kids got to swim ashore on the forbidden island.  The boat got caught in some high winds and some of the group was stranded for a while as the boat motored back up.
The highlight of the trip was fishing.  Bengt caught a sheephead and a calico.  Very fun!
