Summer Camp 2011

July 10-15, 2011
Treasure Valley Scout Reservation

Event Info

Class B T Shirt

Troop 54 was at Chippewa site this year, our second time using it during summer camp. The site worked well for us as it was centrally located to program locations while being off the beaten path. The weather was really good (only rained once - and that was while we were sleeping). The mosquitos were not too bad this year. This was the biggest week of the seaon for Treasure Valley. All eleven sites were occupied one by a combination of three troops.

Troop 54 had twenty-five campers this year (19 Scouts and 6 leaders). During the week:

  • Several members of the troop participated in the Order of the Arrow's Hour of Service, this year cleaning up the edge of the new camp road near the Ranger's house.
  • Our first year camper participated in Brownsea Island Adventure.
  • Our Scouts competed effectively in the campwide relay race.
  • Our Scouts earned 71 merit badges (and several partials).
  • We had three rank advancements.
  • Five Scouts were tapped out for Order of the Arrow.
