Cooking Merit Badge - You still have time

Posted by rjhetrickjr on Jan 29 2015 - 11:19am


Just before Christmas I had a converation with the young man who was the Couselor for the Cooking Merit Badge at Camp Raymond.  He told me that for any Sout who came to the classes at Camp Raymond without having started the badge, he started them on the new (2015-?) requirements.  That means if you have a partial and are missing requiremetns 5 and/or 7, we can follow the new requiremetns 5 and 7 and you can build on what you finished at Camp Raymond and complete the badge.  So be sure to see me -- I usually arrive 10-30 minutes before the meetings.  I have your merit badge cards if you earned a Partial at Camp Raymond in 2014.  Remember that THIS IS NOW AN EAGLE REQUIRED MERIT BADGE.

April 23-26: Geezer Galiuro Wilderness Backpack Trip

Posted by tking on Jan 26 2015 - 8:48pm

The Geezer adventure this year will be a four day backpack through the Galiuro Wilderness area in Southeast Arizona. We will be hiking between 8 and 10 miles per day thru some fairly rugged terrain.


  • Day One: Hike into Powers Garden and possibly camp in the old cabin there.
  • Day Two: Hike up to Hold Out Spring & Cave and camp there.
  • Day Three: Hike up into the high country of Kennedy Peak and camp.
  • Day Four: Hike out to Deer creek (our starting point).

This is a remote and seldom visited Wilderness area with much history and many mining ruins from over a hundred years ago. We had a great trip here three years ago, and all are eager to see more of the country. Remember this is a non B.S.A event and geezer/adult only! We need to leave town on April 23rd at 4 AM to be able to make our 9 AM starting point for the hike!

See Mr. Rideout if you have any questions about the trip.


Message from Mr. Willse - Citizenship in the Community

Posted by tking on Jan 26 2015 - 6:23am

Update from Mr. Willse regarding the Citizenship in the Community Requirement 4:


Choose an issue that is important to citizens in your community; then do the following:

(a)    Find out which branch of local government is responsible for this issue.

(b)   With counselor and a parent’s approval, interview one person from the branch of government you identified in requirement 4a.  Ask what is being done about this issue and how young people can help.


If this is an issue that involves drug enforcement, Mr. Willse can have a Phoenix police detective available for interview at 6:30 one Monday evening.  Please let him know by February 2nd

Mr. Willse offers to meet with scouts at 6:30 PM on Mondays for the Citizenship in the Community, Nation and World badges during the winter months (he returns to New England for the spring/summer). If you are interested, please come at 6:30 PM and bring a signed blue card from the Scoutmaster, Merit Badge Book, and Merit Badge worksheet for each badge you are interested in earning.

Scouts attending the Citizenship in the Nation class should be prepared to discuss the Declaration of Independence, The Articles of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  Reading them ahead of time will save everyone's time.  For Citizenship in the Community, each scout should have a map of their community indicating where government buildings are located and a chart of the organization of the local or state government.

Feb 14-16: Burro Creek High Adventure 14+ Backpack

Posted by tking on Jan 15 2015 - 7:08am

This will be a challenging 3-day backpack in the upper reaches of Burro Creek wilderness. We will be hiking in the high desert in the winter, so it’s sure to be chilly, especially at night.  We will be exploring a trail less area of Burro Creek Canyon, our plan is to hike six or seven miles up Burro creek and make camp. On Sunday, our plan is to leave camp early in the morning and explore as far up Burro creek as possible. This is a very remote and scenic area with lots of Cottonwood trees and many chances to see wildlife including beaver in a very remote and beautiful thousand foot deep canyon. On Monday, we will hike out to the cars and drive back to the church.  Make plans to come and have a great time!

This outing is for Scouts 14 and above with backpacking experience, or with Scoutmaster approval if under 14. This is a completely new area to explore so don’t miss this adventure.
