Dear Tay Son Scout and Parents

  • Welcome back to scouting after a long summer break, I hope everyone has a good, relax and fun time so far.
  • For scouts that want to earn Tenderfoot or Second Class by next Lien Doan Camp, this is the time to push to get all requirements tested, then request for SMC and then request to have BOR before the camp date.
  • UPDATE: Next Sunday (7/22/2018), Tay Son and Dong Da will have a day hike in Aliso Wood and Canyon Wilderness Park. Tentative plan for the hike from 8AM -  1PM.  It is a 10 miles of easy hike and 3 miles of dificult trails.  Please have your parents do the on-line permission as soon as possible.

  • The weather for June 9 & 10 will be High in the mid-80 degrees and Low in the low-60 degrees with no chance of precipitation
  • We will follow the itinerary and procedures in this document (Spruce Grove Trip Plan).
  • On Friday, drink lots of water to hydrate your body and get plenty of sleep.
  • If you haven’t already done so, bring your personal snack items in a ziplock bag.
  • If you already packed certain clothing in your backpack (e.g., jacket), please do not bring duplicate items when you arrive on June 9 since it only adds more weight that you will have to carry. You can use what is already in your backpack that day.
  • We will conduct testing for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and Tuyen Hua during this trip. Monitor your progress and ask for testing if needed.
  • Second-year scouts who intend to complete Second Class requirement 2c during the backpacking trip need to carry a campfire permit. Complete online and print out.
