Matthews Arm Campout

Posted on May 23 2016 - 11:07am

What a great campout!

We hiked 5-miles over rough terrain with a climb of 1000 feet of elevation. We crossed a flood stage stream safely, survived a night of 50 mile an hour winds and driving rain and even saw a couple of Black bears in the process. The Venture crew hiked over 15 miles, crossed at least 8 streams and probably did more on the order of 1500 feet of elevation changes - along with the wind, rain and bears. No complaining and great attitudes despite it being 50 degrees in May!

Great job with backpack cooking -nobody went hungry for sure!

Very proud of these young men.

Mr. Stern
Scoutmaster, Troop 1195
