From the mountains to the sea, they hiked. And hiked. And hiked. These intrepid Scouts met the 20-mile Hiking Merit Badge requirement by travelling from the hills of Orange County all the way down to the sands of Newport Bay—in a single day. Whew.
Our Troop made a big push for Scouting for Food, holding a month-long donation campaign. The patrols had a friendly competition to see who could collect the most food (the Eagles won). The result was a total of 320 items that were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank.
