Nights: 6

Location: Willits, CA (Mendocino County)

Description: Wente Scout Reservation is a Nationally Accredited BSA Scout Camp owned and operated by the Golden Gate Area Council.


Comprised of over 2200 acres of private property, Wente is one of the largest Scout Camps on the West Coast. Wente Scout Reservation offers a chance to hike, backpack, sail, mountain bike, fish, ride horses, and go rock climbing all in one week. Scouts can try their hand at black powder musket firing, kayaking, and rappelling. Expert instruction in popular outdoor skill merit badges will make the Scoutcraft area come alive. Wente is rich in wildlife and allows for the study of conservation, reforestation, wildlife management, woodcraft, and nature study. Rifle, shotgun, and archery shooting are also popular activities.


The tall Douglas Fir, Redwoods, Madrones, and golden meadows spell adventure for those that like to rough it and test their skills. Their private 80-acre lake is a great place for swimming, small boat sailing, kayaking, and canoeing, and it is considered one of the warmest lakes in the state. The lake also offers some prime fishin' with many trophy big-mouth bass caught by both the expert and novice anglers alike.


Aquatics

Start Date: 08/27/22, 8:00AM

End Date: 08/28/22, 6:00PM

All Day: No

Hours: 10

Location: Sierra Whitewater, Lotus, CA

Description: Join T126 to earn a Whitewater Merit Badge. The best way to learn is through doing. With whitewater rafting, scouts work together fostering friendships and their own abilities while having adventures to last a lifetime. And of course, Scouts can complete their whitewater merit badge!


This multi-day trip includes rafting instruction and 2 rafting trips to explore both sections of the beautiful South Fork of the American River. Along with the thrill of taking on class III and III+ rapids, there will be many opportunities to swim and jump into the water, and to enjoy prepared lunches along the river. You will spend 1 night camping under the stars near the river, with scout cooking opportunities for dinner and breakfast. Learn more here: https://sierrawhitewater.com/


The deadline to register is 7/15 and there must be a minimum of 6 scouts attending, but the more scouts, the more fun you'll have! Don't worry about the rapids being too difficult (the minimum age is 7 years old) or the water too cold (they provide dry tops and wet suits) or not having enough water (it's dam release)! Though you will wear PFDs, you must pass the T126 swimmers test to participate.


Cost includes all whitewater rafting trip costs, meals, and 2 ASMs to participate (including transportation by ASMs). ASM fees are reduced if more than 6 scouts participate.
