Trailmen stand for one last photo before breaking camp.

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:

PATROL METHOD – The boys were formed into patrols.  a separate article about the patrol method can be found here (along with pictures of the method in practice).

    1. It was one of the boys’ favorite. Must have been a great dad working that station – and building traps is fun!

      Just a reminder that the Trailmen are leading a Marian Procession after the Noon Mass today!
