West Distrit Camporee
The James E. West District held its fall camporee the weekend of October 25 - 27. The theme was "Scouting: A Story of Us" which allowed Scouts to experience and learn about traditional beliefs the Boy Scouts were founded on. Scouts were taught the ways of outdoor cooking through the Cooking Merit Badge, and how Astronomy has played a role in the survival and development of mankind. Also, scouts were offered the opportunity to develop and sharpen their archery skills; troops competed in the "Spam-a-lot" dutch oven and gateway competitions. The Sunday morning "Scouts Own" service was a meaningful and thought provoking end to this event.

Venturing Crew 31 Has Fun at Virgin Falls State Natural Area
Over the October 26-27 weekend, Venturing Crew 31 took an overnight backpacking trip into the Virgin Falls State Natural Area. After setting up camp near Big Laurel Falls, the Crew hiked the remaining miles to the incredible Virgin Falls. This natural waterfall descends 110 feet from a cliff before disappearing into a cave below. The Crew went on alert when a member was briefly separated from the group. Before long, all were reunited in time for homemade chili around a warm fire. The full and happy campers of Crew 31 rested before a departure hike the next day, declaring the trip a success.
