Indian Creek Water Trip

Troop 10’s Plan C for this past weekend’s water trip went from the Wolf River to Toledo Bend to finally Indian Creek. And not a soul was disappointed! We had loads of fun kayaking, swimming and wiping out behind Dr. Peter’s Waverunners!

Yes, it rained a little, but it didn’t dampen the weekend action!

Hiking Trip

backpacking-iconWe are meeting at the Troop Trailer on Saturday, March 28 at 6:30 am for gear shakedown.

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!

Summer Camp Reminders

  • 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.
