Troop 57 September News (2015) NEW!

Lassen Volcanic National Park (Sept 5 - 7)

After a long, lazy summer, get back into the swing of Scouting by joining your fellow scouts on one of Troop 57’s favorite adventures -- Lassen Volcanic National Park. See active volcanic features and hike among the beautiful and impressive topography created by the 1914-1921 eruptions. This park is so amazing that it was designated a National Park just last year.

We are limited to 30 scouts and adults so sign up promptly to reserve your spot on this adventure. [Flyer]

Annual Russian River Canoe Excursion (Sept 12-13)
It's time to sign up for one of Troop 57's most classic trips, our Annual Russian River Canoe Excursion. We camp overnight in Sonoma County in order to get on the river early Sunday. We will once again have an optional Zip Lining trip on Saturday afternoon. Sign-up now - as this is always one of most popular trips of the year and it fills up quickly. The river is quite pretty and this is an easy and fun canoe trip. No prior experience needed and all beginners are welcome. Each canoe will have two rowers. There are no major rapids, although there are occasional fast areas where the river narrows or has sharp turns. Our regular 4-6 hour float trip is approximately 11 miles long.
Reply Deadline: Sign-up via google doc and remit payment and Scout canoe waiver and zip line waiver by August 31, 2015. [Click here for details]

Our annual all troop outing.  We will camp and hike among old growth redwoods in this tranquil, wilderness area 40 minutes from the Scout House.  There will be hiking, games, a troop campfire and special activities for our first year scouts.

Rock Fishing Trip (October 3)

It's almost time for the annual Ocean Rock Fishing trip. We will start out early from Palo Alto to catch the sunrise on what is sure to be a great day on the water. We will be renting the Hulicat, a fishing boat off the San Mateo coast. 

Last year, EVERYONE caught a fish, so don't worry about whether or not you have fishing experience, as fishing for rock cod is fairly simple. The trip costs $95 including a fishing rod and reel. There is limited space, so sign up soon.  Sign-ups close on September 24 to make the boat reservation.
