Troop 57 Summer News (2015) NEW!

Palo Alto to the Pacific (June 28 - July 2) 

Join Troop 57 on it's inaugural Palo Alto to the Sea Summer Backpacking Hike. Day 1, start at the Palo Alto Scout House and hike 10 miles to Foothills Park where we’ll set up camp and enjoy dinner. In the morning we head for Black Mountain backpacking camp for night photography and a view of city lights from the valley below. From Montebello pass through woods, over streams and among wildlife with overnight stops at Castle Rock and Big Basin State Parks and then to Waddell Creek Beach for transportation back to Palo Alto. This outing qualifies for BSA’s 50 miler patch as well as two 10 milers towards the hiking merit badge. Age 14+ and backpacking experience required and only a couple of spots are available.



Camp Oljato 2015 (July 12-19 and July 18-25)

Camp Oljato (pronounced ol-JAY-to) is located on Huntington Lake in Lakeshore, CA (Fresno County). Our camp property ranges in elevation from 7,000 to just under 8,000 feet. The camp is about 240 miles from the Pacific Skyline Council, San Mateo/Santa Clara area, about 5-6 hours driving time. Camp Oljato is accessible only by pontoon boats which run on a regular schedule during our Scout camping season. Camp Oljato has complete aquatics, nature, handicrafts, and shooting sports areas which are complemented by our dining hall and food service team. Oljato is a name of a Navajo Indian village near Monument Valley, Utah, and the name means "Starlight on the Waters.”

Boy Scout camp offers a great experience for every scout: The Basic Skills Program (Tenderfoot skills) for new incoming scouts; the Merit Badge Program for intermediate Scouts; and C.O.P.E, Climbing, advanced sailing, the mile swim and more activities for experienced Scouts. Oljato provides opportunities for Scouts to learn new skills that are not part of our Palo Alto Program, earn Merit Badges, and just have fun in a safe, Scout-led environment!   [Flyer]
