Caving Trip

Posted by jwhite on Jan 10 2021 - 9:41am

Mark your calendar, we are planning on a caving trip for Feb 26-28.

The first one (2019) was a great success and the scouts had a blast. This year we will be camping at Cloudland Canyon state park, the same spot as last time. The cave will be different, this time it will be Pettyjohn cave located on the Crockford Pigeon Mountain WMA outside of LaFayette GA. Clint Garner will be our guide again, and he tells me he still has all of his cool gear including his yellow caving shorts!

Please go ahead and mark your calendar and I'll continue to send details as they come - gear rental logistics, trip costs, etc.

Here are some links to the cave and the state park:

Okefenokee Swamp Canoeing - January 15th-18th

Posted by jwhite on Jan 10 2021 - 9:40am


During our recent planning meeting the scouts discussed a canoeing trip to the Okefenokee over the January 15th-18th long weekend. This would be a great new venue and would allow the scouts to gain some paddling experience and see a neat wilderness area.

You do not have to be a registered adult to take this training, but everyone working with the boys or attending trips are required to be updated on their Youth Protection training. This training is for the boy's protection as well as yours.
