What is a night hike? The night hike is a 10 mile course that begins at Camp Thunderbird and goes east along the road to the Simpson property around a logging road and back to Camp Thunderbird. There are 10 challenge activities along the way.
The hike will occur in all kinds of weather so come prepared. Scouts are evaluated on their performance as a team. Scouts get a patch and breakfast. There will be troop award ribbons for the top three teams.
The event is on Friday, November 17th – Saturday, November 18th at Camp Thunderbird in Olympia. Check in starts at 5:30 PM.
We are trying for the 8:30 timeframe to depart they only have 14 spots left. If we can not get this timeframe we will be choosing the 8 pm to depart time.
They will be providing dinner and breakfast, if we depart at 8 pm we should expect a minimum 2 to 3-hour timeframe which would put our finish time 11 pm

Due to a family emergency, this clinic has been delayed from May 20th to June 17th.
Troop 101 will be holding a Chemistry Merit Badge Clinic on June 17th, from 9 am to 1 pm. The clinic will be held at the South Bay Fire Station #3 at 5912 Puget Beach Rd NE, Olympia, WA.
This badge is an opportunity to learn about the fundamentals of chemistry and some aspects of how it applies to your daily life. With just a little pre-work completed, scouts should be able to complete this badge during the clinic.
Email Kevin Ammons at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and receive your pre-work assignments. You must also have a Blue Card signed by the Scoutmaster or other appropriate leader before the clinic begins.
Finally, we need one additional adult volunteer for this event.
The next Hiking Merit Badge hike is this Saturday!
Troop 101 will be travelling to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge and will hike for a total of 10 miles through the refuge with lots of opportunities to see wildlife.
Scouts need to be prepared with a day pack with their 10 essentials, paying special attention to the weather forecast which calls for a rainy day. Good hiking boots are important.
Scouts pursuing the Hiking Merit Badge will meet Saturday, April 22nd, at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge at 2:00. Unless you have a special pass, there is a small charge for every four adults. There is no charge for anyone under 16.
