Spring Break 2022
Younger Scouts – USS Lexington

This is going to be a really cool trip. A historical (and possibly haunted) adventure awaits Troop 1000 when we stay overnight aboard USS Lexington, a mighty, record-setting World War II aircraft carrier-turned museum located on Corpus Christi Bay. We’ll hear stories from the ship’s illustrious past—covering topics like kamikaze and torpedo attacks, the manpower it takes to navigate an aircraft carrier, and being named the “Blue Ghost” by Tokyo Rose.

The chapters of this living history lesson unfold over 11 different levels within the ship, giving curious minds a hands-on experience that reflects on the sacrifices made by a heroic generation, builds camaraderie, inspires love of learning, and is just plain fun!

Our troop is doing the Camp LEX two-night overnight program that includes a bonus gift- one free flight simulator ride for each attendee!

Departing Saturday morning March 5 from RLC. Returning Monday afternoon March 7 to RLC.

Total costs will be $185 per person.
– $150 for the 2-night stay on the Lexington including meals.
– $35 for gas and road food

Souvenir or extra spending money is up to the attendees.

$100 deposit due on Wednesday January 26th to reserve your commitment.

PAYPAL Deposit $100

Spring Break 2022
Older Scouts – Backpacking the Goodwater Loop Trail

We will be traveling to Georgetown, TX and hiking the Goodwater Loop Trail on Lake Georgetown. Good Water Loop is a 26.9 mile heavily trafficked loop trail and is rated as moderate. We will complete the entire lake trail in 4 days. This is an excelent opportunity for older Scouts looking for some real Scouting adventure. Put your Scout Skills to the test and live out of your backpack for the week.

Backpacking Scouts will need to prepare with a trail rated pack and appropriate gear based on The 10 Essentials. Backpackers will start hikiing Sunday morning and average 6-7 miles per day returning to Base Camp Wednesday afternoon. Backpackers will pack their own trail food, prepare meals with portable stoves, and filter their own water right out of the lake.

Plus Lakeside exploring, Campfire, skits and songs to close out the fun.
Be glad you did not say “I cannot go.”

Departing Saturday morning March 5 from RLC. Returning Wednesday afternoon March 9 to RLC.

Total costs will be $60 per person.
– $15 Camping fee
– $30 for food
– $15 for gas
