Scout Troop 357 to Hold Recruitment Night in North Fork

NORTH FORKScouting teaches many important skills that come in handy later in life, including first aid, cooking, camping, maps, and compasses, just to name a very few. Now your child can join this historic organization as North Fork Boy Scout Troop 357 will be holding a special recruitment night at the Scout Building in North Fork, located near the Town Hall.

All boys from age 11 to 17 are eligible to become Boy Scouts. Boys as young as 10 and in the 5th grade are also welcome to become Boy Scouts.

Parents are encouraged to come with their sons and learn what Scouting has to offer.

Scouts learn about the value of being a good member of the community. They do this by taking part in activities that improve our local area, including tree planting and road cleanup.

The North Fork troop likes to go camping, swimming, hiking, and backpacking into the wilderness. Each summer the troop spends a week at Camp Chawanakee Boy Scout camp on the shores of Shaver Lake.

Over the past few years, some of the more interesting places the troop has gone include camping trips to Death Valley, Bodie ghost town, and Morro Bay. We have visited the Castle Air Museum and more recently took a day hike to the Hites Cove mining site on the Merced River. This past fall the troop visited Columbia State Park and rode the steam train ride at Railtown 1897.
