Every year in late June, the Trailmen of OR-1531 and their dads kick off summer with a Troop Campout. This year, a Trailman’s grandparents were kind enough to share their farm near the Ankeny Wildlife Refuge. The Troop departed from St. Joseph’s Catholic Church at 6pm on Friday.
During the campout there will be age appropriate adventures including archery, a pellet gun range, snaring, building a rope bridge, fire making, lashing, capture the flag, a nature walk, Saturday Mass, evening prayer, skits, songs, and time between for boys to be boys! Because it was such an large event, with a lot of pictures, separate links to the different activities are below:
