We have an opportunity to visit the Army Heritage and Educational Center, with a camping opportunity the weekend of October 20-22.
We'll leave Zion approximately 5pm on 10/20 to arrive at Hidden Valley Scout Reservation around 6:30pm. We will have a lodge similar to Camp K cabins but with a restroom. Most are a cross between Ertel and Edna Sheary with capacities from 10 to 50. We hoped to keep costs down by encouraging tents or hammocks. All cabins have areas for tents and hammocks.
Saturday morning we would have a 30 minute drive to AHEC, it's open 10am-5pm, then back to the Scout Reservation. Sunday morning would be breakfast, pack up and we need to checkout before 11am. We could be home around noon. Estimated total cost per Scout (food/lodging/AHEC is free) around $15-20 depending on how many go.
We need to make reservations by August 16, so sign up here if you are interested:
Our annual Blue Rock shooting event will take place on Tuesday, August 15 at the Knopp residence. The address is: 441 Knopp Drive, Muncy, Pa 17756 and the event takes place from 6:30PM - 8PM.
We do need to know if Scouts will have their own equipment or need to borrow equipment. If you need to borrow, we may assess a small fee to help cover the cost of ammunition. All Scouts are welcome to attend and learn about firearm safety. Sign up here to be part of the event:
We have been asked to volunteer on September 23 at World's End State Park.
We will be helping to hand out food and drinks at the end of a race and then picking up trail markers on approximately 3 miles of trails. We will be helping from 9AM - 1PM.
We will meet at Zion at 7:15AM and return when finished. We need both Scout and Adult volunteers. Sign up here to earn service hours and help at this event:
Finally, it is hard to believe that we are already looking at our Fall activities. The one that most people look forward to is our Annual Bike Hike. We will once again be biking the scenic Pine Creek Bike Trail.
We will be meeting at the church at 5:30PM on Friday, September 15 to travel to our starting camping area (Slate Run). We will bike on Saturday (from Wellsboro) and Sunday, September 15-17. We will break camp on Sunday. Detailed information will be available soon. Sign up here to be part of the fun:
