BSA Troop 159 camped out in our Park over the 2/21-2/23 weekend.

They took advantage of the lack of leaves to worked on:


  • The Tyler Campbell Eagle Scout Camping Outpost Project - 11 Youth and 6 adults each spent  2.5 hours working on the trail and camp site, contributing 42.5 hours;

  • New hiking trails - cutting and clearing trail from Layman Shelter to Chapter House - 10 Youth and 4 adults x 2.5 hours = 35 hours; and

  • Clearing downed tree on campground trail - 5 youth and 3 adults x 1.5 hours = 22.5 hours.


Total Service Hours Recorded = 100 hours


BSA accomplishments completed:

Totin Chip (safe use of saws/axes/knives) x 5 scouts

Paul Bunyan Woodsman Award x 9 scouts

Completion of outdoor conservation service hours for rank advancement

They spent the night in the Chapter House due to the freezing temperatures - popsicle scouts not on our agenda.  This is an example of the Chapter opening its member supported facilities to community activities that support the conservation and nature objectives of the Izaak Walton League.
