Troop 868 Backpacking in Yosemite
July 2014, Troop 868, sponsored by Rockland Baptist Church in Hendersonville, spent a week backpacking in Yosemite. The Scouts experienced firsthand the meaning of “Be Prepared”. The Scouts saw amazing lakes, waterfalls, rivers, trees, and even had a bear encounter.

While swimming in Yosemite, Life Scout Jacob Lord discovered a camera in the lake. After realizing the camera was broken, Jacob removed the memory card, and realized he had seen the people on the images earlier that day. Jacob saw the couple later in the day and returned their lost camera. The wife jokingly suggested that Jacob saved her husband’s life, as all of their memories from this trip were on that camera.

Scoutmaster Bill Barton said the troop will plan more challenging and memorable trips like this!
