Last weekend two of our scout patrols took part in the annual ScoutHike camp along with about 1300 other scouts and leaders. They competed against 173 patrols navigating their way independently through the forest between activity bases scoring points along the way.

Photos show our scouts visiting the Captain Blackbeard base run by Bayview Scout Troop.  There they became pirates, avoided crocodiles to board ship, raised the Jolly Roger, walked the plank and jumped blind into shark infested water. If they survived that and the sword fight they searched for gold (edible gold) in the spooky graveyard and fired water cannon to celebrate their success.
