Map & Compass Hike -- West Fortuna Mountain, Mission Trails Regional Park

This will be a great hike in one of our local, in-town wilderness areas. We’ll cover 5 miles on a moderately strenuous out-and-back trail with 1000 feet of elevation gain/loss. But even better, we’ll learn how to use a compass and topographic map together – satisfying some advancement requirements for 2nd Class and 1st Class! Once you learn this critical skill, you’ll have a better appreciation of the terrain and you’ll never be lost again. This will be a “rain or shine” event, so be sure to be prepared for the weather conditions!

History of Troop 11

History of Troop 11

By Ryan Luecke, Troop Historian 2001

As the Historian, I visited the Scout Headquarters in January where they let me look in old file cabinets and I found an old troop charter dated 1966. Then, Dr. McCammack (the minister of this church) gave me an audio cassette with the history of Palomar camp. I found that a boy named Albert Long chose the name “Palomar Baptist Camp” for the camp, and he was given a 10-cent candy bar as his reward.
