Trail to 1st Class at Little Basin State Park, April 12-14

We are booked for the nights of April 12th and 13th at Little Basin State Park near Boulder Creek in the local mountains.   We will plan out the food at an upcoming scout meeting and meet at Roberts to shop before we go.  We will also plan out the car pooling to make sure we can get everyone there and back.
Little Basin is a unique camping destination that features open grassy meadows, acres of dense redwood forest, and miles of hiking trails as well as two sports fields, a tennis court, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, a children’s playground, and more. Camping accommodations include cabins, tent spaces, RV sites and a large group camping area. All campsites are equipped with a BBQ grill, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground also includes piped drinking water, rest rooms, and showers.



Trail to 1st Class – Portola Redwoods State Park, April 20-22

The Trail to 1st Class camping trip will be in near by Portola Redwood State park in the Santa Cruz Mountains this weekend April 20-22.  The campground is only 40 minutes from Corte Madera school so is very convenient to set up Friday evening. A sign up sheet will be sent through Teamsnap or you can go to the signup link on the Calendar page. We will spend time on planning for the camp out at this weeks Troop meeting on Wednesday so please attend. 

The campground has upgrade facilities since last year with great  opportunities for hiking. It will be an ideal and fun place to complete achievements towards your next rank. Please plan on attending. It is chance for older and higher ranking scouts to help give back to the Troop by helping their newer Troop members gain achievements. Updated information on the trip will be posted soon so please check back for updates. 

The 2,800-acre park is situated in the craggy, rough terrain of a deep canyon. Located within the populous San Francisco Bay area, Portola Redwoods offers a hushed getaway from suburban bustle. First- and second-growth coast redwoods stand tall among thick ferns and redwood sorrel in gullies and on north slopes. The park’s high ridges and southfacing slopes are covered by Douglas-fir and live oaks.
