Troop Meeting - End of Year BBQ (and Squirt Gun Fight!!!)

Each year as we head into summer Troop 48 holds an "end of year*" barbeque event. This year we held the event at Eagle Point's Chamerlain Park. Scouts cooked for the adults and siblings, played several outdoor games, and engaged in a suqirt gun "battle royale". 

*Even though Troop 48 engages in many activities over the summer, we consider the end of the school year as the end of our troop's more traditional year. Over the the summer months we focus less on advancement and skill building, and more on informal activities. This allow us to keep having fun without disadvantaging scouts who may be abesnt for family sumertime activities and vacations. We also use this time to attend anual Sumer Camp and for our yearly High Adventure outing.

Troop 48 Formally Recognized by the City of Eagle Point

Posted on May 16 2018 - 6:17pm

At the May 8th city council meeting the City of Eagle Point formally recognized the many hours of service provided to the community by Troop 48. The city also recognized one of our Eagle Scouts for his work replacing the entire fence at Mattie Brown park.

Many of our scouts took this opportunity to also work on some of their requirements for the Citizenship in the Community merit badge which required they attend a City Council meeting and report on the issues they saw discussed.

For many of them this was an eye opening experience into the types of issues and decisions facing our town on a daily basis, they learned of two plans to renovate the old fire house, a new update to the ordinance to change parking requirements in downtown, saw the city have to make difficult decisions surrounding the upgrades to Lynn road, as well as adoption of new branding for the city.

Service - A New Fence for the Community Garden

Troop 48 has several Eagle Scout projects in the community garden. Most recently one of our scouts replaced on of the dilapidated raised beds with a new concrete raised bed that is so well built it will probably outlast us all.

When the leaders of the Eagle Point Community Garden recently showed up to one of our troop meetings and asked the troop to help them with setting up a new fence we were happy to help.

Several scouts and leaders happily gave up a Sunday morning this spring and replaced all of the wire fencing surrounding the individual garden beds with an new perimeter fence that provides much better access to the garden beds while keeping the deer and other critters out.

Outing - Camping and Backpacking in the Redwoods

Backpacking tents set up in a meadow
In Troop 48 we love getting out in nature. We especially love backpacking. We also realize that not all our scouts are ready for a 20 mile backpacking trip. So, in early spring we packed our packs and headed over to the redwoods for a dual camping / backpacking trip. We made camp on the south fork of the Smith River on Friday evening. On Saturday the entire troop headed out to Stout Grove (where part of Star Wars was filmed) and took a short hike to see the truly massive “Boy Scout Tree”.  Our campers headed back to camp and so did our hikers (on foot by way of the Little Bald Hills Trail). Our hikers made camp that evening at Little Bald Hills and reunited Sunday mid-morning with our campers after a beautiful 10 mile hike.
