Scouting for Food

img_8965On Saturday, Nov. 19 Troop 27 continued our pre Thanksgiving holiday tradition of collecting food donations with the Scouting for Food program.

We meet at Marlin Park in Redwood Shores at 8:30AM. A little rain during the morning but rain would never slow down troop 27!

We collected 1,941 pounds of food and delivered to the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Carlos. We had 19 scouts there to help, so that was just over 100 pounds of food for each scout that attended! We didn’t beat the Record but there is always next year.

Thanks to all the Scouts, ASM’s, Drivers and parents that helped with Scouting for food today!

August Canoeing!

Summer Camp 2016 Rocked!

IMG_0794Again this summer our troop continued its unique, 50-plus-year tradition of building its own week long summer camp at a lake in the high Sierra. This year it was Loon Lake in the El Dorado National Forest.

13 scouts started off camp working on and achieving their Canoeing and Swimming Merit Badges.

On Wednesday the scouts got to do the troop’s traditional 5-mile troop hike including a great foil pouch dinner cooked on coals.

Many more skills were offered from the troop’s dedicated ASM and core and scout leadership core including Camping, Emergency Preparedness, Environmental Science, Lifesaving, Nature, Orienteering, and – of course – Swimming and Canoeing.

Again this year there were patrol contests, wood chopping and the two-man saw, Kajabe Can-Can, Two Ball and the very popular White Bomb!

All in, an incredible time for the troop!

June Canoe Trip

IMG_7640The annual June canoe trip outing was fantastic success. Fifteen scouts went on the outing together at Coyote Lake Reservoir in Gilroy. We also had five parent ASMs join the fun on the trip in addition to driving and towing 12 of the troops 18 canoes. The trip gave many of our newer scouts a chance to get a head start on their canoeing skills for summer camp.

Klondike January 30 – 31


Approximately 19 scouts and 8 adults gathered Saturday morning at 7:30 AM at the church for the Troop’s annual Klondike outing.  The scouts divided up into cars and headed out for Cisco Grove.

Upon arriving, the scouts unloaded their gear and started setting up snow shelters.  There was 2 feet of snow on the field and 1 foot of water beneath the snow.  A few of the scouts fell through soft spots in the snow and were drenched by the cold water underneath the snow.  These scouts were rescued by other troop members and dried out/changed clothes before continuing to work on their shelters.  During dinner, the troop huddled around a fire to keep warm.  Due to the efforts used building snow shelters, the scouts turned in early for bed.  It snowed six inches overnight, causing a couple of tarps to collapse on some sleeping scouts.  After re-setting the tarps, the scouts were able to get back to sleep.

Sunday morning began with breakfast (bacon and eggs) followed by flag ceremony and games and activities.  Approximately 10 boy scout troops and one cub scout pack (along with the Troop 27 venture crew) camped at the site, although a few troops left before the games began.  Activities included a sled race, snowshoe relay and four man ski.  The cub scout pack performed well, beating one of the Troop 27 patrols in the sled race.  Unfortunately, there was no tobacco spitting event this year.

Troop 27 was very well prepared for the weekend and the elements and was the last troop to leave the event.  The troop had soup for lunch, took their gear out on sleds and finished the event with a snowball fight. On the drive home, the troop stopped at IN-N-OUT burger in Davis for dinner. Back at the church, many of the scouts took a troop tarp home to dry out.

Scouts for food

Scouts gathered at Redwood Shores Elementary School and started out with some fun games.    Scouts divided into small groups and off we went.   After several hours, cars returned to the school packed with food donations from wonderful folks in the Redwood Shores community.    Some folks even gave cash donations.   Several scouts left to shop with the donations.   When we finally arrived at Second Harvest Food Bank, our donation weighed 1,114 pounds!    Thank you everyone for supporting us!
