  • A Great weekend hiking and biking out of Antietam camp ground

    Antietam Campout Bike Hike
    April 24-26, 2015
    By: Caleb Clavelli

    After we had arrived at Antietam Creek on Friday, the older patrol, the Flaming Arrows, helped the younger Ram patrol set up there site.   After it was all set up everyone went to bed. The next day 7 of the scouts, along with Ms. Pam and Granny,  left to go biking to Harper’s Ferry, an 18 mile around trip. While there they ate lunch and got ice cream. Three other scouts, along with Mr. Phillips and Mr. Nosalik, went hiking up Maryland Heights, a very steep trail, at the top they had seen a very beautiful view of the valley below. During all of this the younger scouts stayed back at the campsite, with Mr. Spicer and Mr. Smith, to work on attaining scout rank, the first in the line to get to Eagle. After lunch the Rams had gone on a short bike ride not going all the way to the Ferry. Then dinner had come around, which turned out fantastically. The Rams made tater-tot casserole and an apple cobbler, the Flaming Arrows made spaghetti and meatballs and Golden Grahams Smores. While we were eating the rain started but we still had our Scout’s Own Service and our “thorns and roses” where the scouts say what they liked about the campout and what they thought could be improved. Afterward we went to bed.   By the next morning it had stopped raining and the sky was clear.   We had gotten into a line to pick up all the trash that we could find to, as we say, “Leave No Trace” were we pick up all the trash we can leaving the place hopefully cleaner then when we had arrived. Over all I would have to say that all the scouts and adults who went enjoyed their time, enjoying the views on the hike, and enjoying the biking.

    Troop’s 1575 Venture Crew Takes on Wild and Wonderful West Virginia
By Ryan B.

"West Virginia: Wild and Wonderful" is exactly what Troop 1575’S Venture Patrol experienced from June 19th-June 23rd. We got to learn about all the things this state had to offer.

        On our first official day, we enjoyed white water canoeing. The Greenbrier River was perfect for this, its shallow waters make for perfect white water canoeing. We twisted and turned (and even turned over!) as we canoed ten miles. On the calmer parts of the river, we saw the beautiful, majestic mountains and forests this state had to offer.

        Zip-lining was also fun. After experiencing West Virginia by water, why not by air? This endeavor was quite enjoyable to anyone who wasn't deathly afraid of heights. Through the thirty or so zip-lines and sky bridges we learned a lot about native plants, the history of West Virginia, and some very funny jokes.

        Troop 1575 searched for a final thrill before we left for home, and we got it at white water rafting on the New River. We followed commands like "hunker down" and "paddle forward". White water rafting is much more extreme compared to white water canoeing, and you get high in the air just like zip-lining. But, on the calm parts of the river we floated in our life jackets awaiting another rapid.

        Other than thrills, we experienced the highest bridge in America in use. We also hugged a tree older than America itself. The thrills weren't the only reason we came here, the landscape was also a big component.

        Overall, we had a lot of fun, whether it was by air or by sea. West Virginia wasn't just a place to get a thrill
, but a place to bond with fellow troop mates.

Antietam Battlefield Illumination 2014

Our Troop has been help with the illumination of Antietam for 25 Years. Over the 25 year we have many great experiences and at time very cold weather to endure.  But is all worthwhile when you do the drive through of the battle in the evening.  It is hard to believe for every candle that was set out represent a Soldier that fell or was missing on action.
