MARCH 2017 BOY PIONEER Spring campout
FEBRUARY 2017 HIKE & MEETINGS
In February, we hiked near Picture Rocks, AZ and explored some small desert canyons and washes. Not much wildlife was observed, but the steep and rocky hills filled with cactus are always beautiful to observe. The Pioneers spent the hike climbing up the igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic large rocks, which are situated throughout the initial pass. Eventually, the group made it to some petroglyphs (the “picture rocks”).
January 2017 Meetings
Girl Pioneers studied sign-language during their January meeting.
Boy Pioneers continued building up towards our spring campout. Previous lessons included hiking, ropes/knots, and camping safety. We continued our lessons on camp tool safety specifically, knife safety. We also water-proofed matches and practiced rolling up sleeping bags, which can be harder than you think when using 30 year old mummy-bags.
