Oct. 11-13 High Adventure Backpack Trip Updated Location - Greer/Mt. Baldy

Posted by tking on Sep 23 2014 - 4:23pm

The high adventure Rim to Rim backpack scheduled for October 11-13, 2014 has been changed to backpack the Greer/Mt. Baldy area.

This will be an extremely challenging 20 mile hike over the shoulder of Mount Baldy as an alternative to the annual Rim to Rim hike.  We will be climbing approximately 2500 feet to an elevation of 11,300 feet, the trail will pass through several life zones with terrific sceneries and views.  The trees should be in full autumn color, this will be a loop hike and we will pass the 1943 wreckage of a B11 military aircraft.  This hike is for scouts 14 and above with high adventure experience. Scouts younger than 14  can go with scoutmaster approval.  There will also be activities available (fishing, shorter hikes) for scouts not wishing to go on the Mount Baldy hike. 

Mount Baldy is the 7th highest point in Arizona, and the highest mountain not in the vicinity of Humphreys Peak. It is part of the White Mountains in eastern Arizona, and its summit lies within the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation. The surrounding Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests offer thousands of acres of ponderosa pine, many lakes, good fishing, and great weather.

Mrs. Buchanan is the Committee Member for this backpack and requests that scouts/adults begin signing up online as soon as possible.

Need Diabetes Walk Volunteers - Service Project: Oct. 11th

Posted by tking on Sep 23 2014 - 8:07am

Scouts, parents, adult leaders and guests can have fun and earn service hours by volunteering for the American Diabetes Association walk event Saturday, Oct. 11th from 7:30 AM - 10:30 AM. Boys will wear Class A and cheer on walkers/racers as well as help in the kid zone with games, etc. as directed by ADA staff. When you're done volunteering, there are lots of fun activities there - games, inflatables for the younger boys, music, snow cones and more!

For the past few years, our troop has helped at this event in central Phoenix. The King family walks and fundraises for this event every year as Ben King's sister was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a few years ago. The walk raises funds for a number of programs including sending kids to diabetes camp every summer.

Please note that this weekend is FULL of scouting activities - the Fall District Camporee and High Adventure Backpack trip to Greer/Mt. Baldy both take place this weekend Oct. 10-12th. We'd love to see you at the walk but sign up only if you do not plan to attend one of these camp outs on the same weekend.

  • Wear Class A Uniform (Requested by the ADA vs. the Volunteer Shirt for recognition purposes)

Parents can stay/not stay at their discretion - there is no direct supervision unless a troop parent volunteers to stay and perform this role (see Mrs. King in interested) and specifically agrees to watch over your boy at the event. Transportation is on your own though parents are welcome to let the King Family know if they are willing to drive additional boys and we will relay that info to anyone in need of a ride. If a boy wants to go but needs a ride, let us know and we'll try to work it out with someone.
