Troop 1 Summer 2014 Fire Mountain Trip, Seattle, Washington

On July 26, 2014, 14 scouts and 7 adults went on a trek to the Fire Mountain scout camp, located in Washington State. We departed at around 1:30 in the afternoon, and after a five hour flight, we landed in the city of Seattle at 9:30 Washington time. After picking up all of our bags from the carousel, we took a shuttle to the DoubleTree Hotel, and after receiving a free cookie, we checked into our rooms. We had a late dinner at Denny’s, and returned to the hotel and rested up for tomorrow.

The next day, we had breakfast at the hotel, and loaded up the three vans that took us to Fire Mountain. After a long drive and a stop at A&W, we finally arrived at the Fire Mountain scout camp. There, we met up with our guide, Max, who showed us the facilities around camp, such as the lake, the dining hall, and our campsite. Arriving at our campsite, we put our gear into our cabins and went to dinner and the opening campfire. Most of the troops present at the camp were from Washington, and there was even a troop from Canada staying the week.

Shriner’s Hospital Community Service

Our community service project was at the Shriner’s Hospital. Shriner’s Hospital is located in Honolulu on Punahou Street. It is a high quality orthopedic hospital for disorders and diseases. The doctors and staff members are committed to enhancing the lives of children in Hawaii and also in the Pacific region. They are also experts with bone,  joint,  brain, and sports therapies.

We were dropped off at Shriner’s Hospital at 10:30 AM. The first thing we did was help take the food outside to the barbeque area. The children who were in the hospital came out to play games, and we were there to entertain them.

The Boy Scout Makahiki 2014

On Saturday, May 10 2014, the Boy Scouts had their annual Makahiki festival in which many different troops from around the state gathered at Ala Moana Beach Park to partake in various different activities hosted by private organizations, or by their fellow Boy Scouts.

In Troop 1’s booth, we had something that involved fencing on a balance beam. The goal was to knock the opponent off of the beam twice to win. The premise was simple, but it was very appealing to the customers because we had multiple people coming back for more. It was mostly the younger kids but there was a group of older kids who had lots of fun fighting each other.
The boys who played seemed to have lots of fun because they were all happy when they fell of the balance beam and wanted to get back at their friend for beating them. All in all, our booth seemed to be one of the booths with more attention. I think it was because people heard the yells and saw the bright yellow balance beam. Or, it could be that it seemed fun to hit their friends.

Preparing for the Makahiki

> In preparation for the Makahiki, older scouts tutored younger scouts in knot tying skills under supervision of assistant scout masters. The scouts then split up into patrols and put their knot tying skills to the test by building tents out of rope and tarps. Patrols then faced off in head to head competition and the winners were based on time and neatness of their tents.

Cooking Corndogs

On our recent troop meeting, we did an activity to practice for a Makahiki event. In previous years the Makahiki events were stuff like knot tying and fire building, but this year it was something different. We not only had to build a fire, but also use that fire to cook a corndog, which we had to cover in batter ourselves. Continue reading
