Treasure Hunt, Mar. 19
By Genna and Pat

On the Star Wars Treasure Hunt we had stations in many different locations such as the beach, a school, the church, and a park. The hunt began with scavenging a part to get donuts and a clue about where Luke might be. Next up was Jedi training where the patrols swung from a rope, trained with a Jedi training ball, and ran with Yoda on their back.

Then the adventure really began as they brought down a planet walker, survived the Lava River, and escaped from the First Order. At the beach Chewbacca was injured and the scouts were given pieces of wood and a bag of many strands of cloth to make a splint and a sling. Every scout tried their best and had pretty good team work.

After practicing flying in formation, they took their turn trying to blow up the Death Star. Luckily, someone was successful! In the end everyone got to make a light saber and collect some treasure based on how well their patrol did.

Ski/Snowboard Trip, Feb. 7
By Holly

We started the day with a lesson. First we learned how to start, balance, and stop on our boards. Then we learned how to go down the hill using back side stop, front side stop, falling leaf, and s-turns. After we stopped for lunch we practiced our stops and turns going down the hill. Once we felt comfortable on the easy hill we moved on to the medium level hill. For the rest of the day we perfected what our instructor had taught us.

Klondike Derby, Jan, 30-31
By Diarmuid

The cold air bit at my nose as I grabbed at the snow blocks building up the shelter walls. But Klondike is an amazing experience of snow survival and crazy snow activities testing your survival instincts. Klondike is always fun and always a great experience. We had a lot of snow this year - which made the building much easier and the snow play so much more fun. (But it's a great trip no matter what the weather - And especially this year, my first with Venture Crew 27.)
