The Beaver Meadows Trail head is located at the Camprock Trailhead in the Mnt Evans Wilderness just outside of Evergreen. (see directions below) The trail to the meadows is apx 3 miles each way with an elevation gain of 1,400 ft. We will meet at the Church at 8:00 am Saturday Aug 15 and leave the parking lot about 8:30 am. Since this is a backpack trip we will not be using the Patrol method of cooking, instead scouts will need to pair up, with each pair being responsible for bringing a tent, a stove and fuel, and food for the pair. I will discuss gear selection, packing, and meal planning at the July 30th scout meeting.

Summer Camp Photos

I agree with Mr. Cone, it was a fantastic camp, the weather was on our side and everyone had a great time.  I added some photos from camp into the 2015 Albums.  Have a look.  I also have a few leftovers, hats, fishing stuff that I will bring to the troop meeting on Thursday.  Thanks for a great summer camp! 

Scoutmaster Summer Camp Recap

Posted by douglas.cone on Jul 18 2015 - 7:35pm

Greetings Troop 808 family!  We've completed another successful Summer Camp and WOW!  We faced challenges and new situations, but the boys and adult leaders rose to the occasion and got things done, and most importantly, had a great time.  We had a few firsts this summer, including Troop run merit badges at summer camp (Our March Camporee helped prepare us for this) and first time at Camp Tahosa for summer camp.  We also had a record number of boys who attended with 29 and they were enthusiastic and prepared.  Every boy got the opportunity to have one on one time with either myself, the ASMs present or the boy leaders to chart their progress and help them set goals for advancement and hopefully, ultimately obtaining their Eagle rank.  I'm so proud of everyone and look forward to building on this experience in the months ahead.  Have a fun, safe and blessed remainder of your summer, Mr. Cone.
