We will leave Lafayette promptly at 7:30 am. (Eat breakfast beforehand or bring with you AND bring a trail lunch with you).
We will drive to Backbone trailhead and arrive at 9:30 a.m. We will reach the campsite by noon, set up camp, and then eat lunch at the Creek. Then back to the campsite for dinner and campfire.
On Sunday, we will break camp and head to St. Cyril Catholic Church for Mass in Flatwoods, LA at 11:00. Bring $$ for lunch as we will stop for lunch on the way back. Don’t forget some water shoes and a bathing suit and a small towel to play in the creek!
We’ll be meeting in from of St. Pius X Elementary at 5:30 this Friday, February 27, 2015 and plan to depart soon after.
We’re heading to Camp Steen, which is less than a half-hour away just north of Abbeville. Make sure you have eaten dinner before you come or take it with you. No meals will be provided on Friday night.
Scouts will be cooking all meals (except Saturday lunch) in a Dutch Oven. The menus have been selected by each patrol. And throughout the day, patrols will be vying for points to be used to purchase “Secret Ingredients” for their gourmet meal on Saturday night!

The Winter Court of Honor has been rescheduled to Sunday, February 1, 2015 at 1:30 P.M. in the Life Center.
Making this an even more special event will be the conferring of the rank of Eagle to Hunter Bouillon and Alex Goodrich.
All new ranks and advancements will be recognized at this ceremony, so it’s sure to be a fantastic time. Please be sure you’re a part of this celebration. We wouldn’t be a troop without you!
Here are some more notes to prepare your son for winter camp:
- Winter camp is NOT like summer camp. It is cold. It is wet. It is dark. It will be a challenge for your scouts (one of the reasons why we go from Sat until Tues night instead of Friday to Wednesday!);
Next Tuesday is the UL game, so we moved our meeting to next Thursday. It will be at 6:30 P at the Acadiana Bicycle Company shop on Johnston Street across the road from Pimon Thai on the corner of Grand and Johnston. Each scout can bring a wheel from their personal bike to be inspected, and Andre (a former Life scout with T405) will be there to show how to change a flat and other emergency repairs. We may even have biking safety demos.
Riding through the woods
Fountainbleau State Park, Mandeville
Saturday-Sunday, Oct 25-26, 2014
Bring your bike and helmet and ride with us down the Tammany Trace from Fountainbleau to Abita Springs. We’ll be camping in the park and maybe even doing some trick or treating with other campers.
We’ll leave Saturday morning and coming back Sunday afternoon.
We will meet in uniform at this SATURDAY’s Mass at 5:00 P at St. Pius. Please have all gear (except for day pack) packed as we will pack the trailer immediately following Mass.
We leave promptly on SUNDAY, June 29 at 6:30 AM from the front of school. Again, be in uniform and have a lunch and water bottle and snacks packed in your day pack.
Scouts, you may want to pack each day’s clothes in a two-gallon zip lock bag marked with the day of the week. Quicker you get ready in the morning, the quicker we get to breakfast and flag raising.
