North Fork Scouts Have A Busy October

Submitted by Dave Smith –

NORTH FORK – The Scouts of North Fork’s Troop 357 have had a very busy October.

On Saturday, Oct. 6, the Scouts helped out at the Grizzly Century Bike Run by bussing tables, washing dishes and doing clean up at the Town Hall during the dinner.

The following weekend, the troop traveled to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park to camp out at the Lodgepole Campground near the General Sherman tree.

After setting up camp, the Scouts hiked to the Tokopah Falls on the Kawaeh River before returning to camp to prepare dinner.

After preparing breakfast and breaking camp Sunday morning, the troop spent the remainder of their time visiting the General Sherman tree area of the park before returning to North Fork.

At the troop’s weekly meetings, Scouts learn numerous skills including camping, cooking, citizenship, swimming and first aid. Boys age 10 ½ and in the 6th Grade or 11 through 17 are eligible to become a Boy Scout.

For more information contact Dave Smith, Scoutmaster, at 877-2186.
