Troop 325 summer activities took scouts to New Mexico and Lake Chelan

The boy scouts in local troop 325 were very busy this past summer. 

In addition to spending a week at BSA summer camp in the North Cascades, they paddled in canoes over 75 miles around Lake Chelan in August. 

A group of adults and older scouts from the troop traveled to New Mexico, to Philmont Ranch, a National Boy Scout Camp for two weeks of rugged backpacking in the mountains. 

The 70 mile hike took them to the top of Mount Phillips at 11,700 feet. They brought back wonderful memories and a few blisters as souvenirs.

The troop is looking to recruit new boys age 11-18 who are looking to experience exciting outdoor adventures this year. 

Troop 325 is a boy-led, non-denominational troop. Boys meet weekly during the school year and participate in local service and WTA (Washington Trails Association) trail maintenance projects, cycling and canoeing trips, car camping, backpacking, hiking, orienteering, and so much more. 

Contact Suzanne at 206-533-6439 for more information or just drop by any Monday evening 7:15-8:30pm at First Lutheran of Richmond Beach church, located at 18354 - 8th Avenue NW, 1 block south of Richmond Beach Road.
