About the Event

WHAT IS OUR GOAL?

Every year we perform service to the Prescott National Forest and a historic property called Palace Station, see link below.  We are working with the ranger on several projects that are needed to maintain the grounds around the station as well as surrounding trails.  All time worked will be logged as service hours in Scoutbook.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

FRIDAY: The site is just over two hours away. We encourage you to bring dinner and/or eat before departure on Friday. Troop will meet at the Church parking lot at 6:00pm. Leave about 6:30pm and will be arriving at the campsite in the dark (which is fun and adds to the adventure).

SATURDAY:  Scouts will cook and eat breakfast and dinner in their patrols. Scouts will bring a sack lunch to eat during the service project.  The Ranger will have a variety of projects for us to complete to maintain the station and area.  Bring work gloves and sturdy boots.  We will have a campfire program after dinner, each patrol must be prepared with a skit or song.

SUNDAY:  Scouts will cook breakfast as a patrol.  We will visit the Palace Station and learn about some of its history.  Afterwards we will pack up and head home.  Scouts and adult leaders will communicate when we are expected to be back at the church for pickup.  Approximate arrival is 11:00 am.

WHAT TO BRING?

Please pack accordingly for warm weather camping.

Scouts will need to bring a tent and sleeping back. (tent with a buddy)
