Arbortrek

Arbortrek was an intense, physically challenging experience, but also a whole lot of fun.  The obstacles ranged from the easy ground level training course to the hardest nicknamed “The Exterminator.”  Everyone, adults included, had a lot of fun during the two and a half hour course. The course difficulties were easy, medium, hard, and extreme.  They included rope bridges, tires hanging from ropes, and logs hanging from ropes.  One exhilarating obstacle was the Leap of Faith.  It’s essentially an auto-belay system where you step off a platform high up in the trees and it lowers you to the ground. The instructors were funny and helped everybody with their gear.  Zip lines were dispersed throughout the course, and we had to attach separate zip linecarabiners to ride them.  We all had a blast at the high ropes course, and hope to have more troop activities like this in the future.

Hello everyone!

***The 25th (Monday) has been changed to the 2nd of August, a Tuesday. The times will be the same, but we will be meeting at Mr. Bell's house, 129 Everbreeze Dr. The post has been updated, sorry for the inconvienence!***

I'm Kristian Labrie, and I'm doing my Eagle Project on the 24th and 25th of July, which are a Sunday and Monday. Sunday will be a build day with two time slots, 9-12 and 1-4. Monday will be an installation day, where there also be two time slots, 9-12 and 1-4. I would really appreciate if you would come help me out on those days, for any amount of time you have. If you can't, that's fine too! If you could sign up on the troop website, and putting in the description when you can work, that would be great! Also, there will be snacks provided during all shifts and lunch if you're working both shifts.

Thank you!

Kristian
