Troop 262 Scouts, Kurtis V, Chris C, Matthew B and Armand C (along with Mr. Connolly and Mr. Philbrook as leaders) completed the 10 mile round trip hike to Carey’s Castle in the Joshua Tree National Park on May 14th. This earned them one of five required 10 mile hikes for their Hiking Merit Badge and Kurtis and Armand completed their hiking requirements for 2nd Class badge. This challenging hike was greatly enjoyed by all and was an exciting adventure. Best part of the hike according to a majority of the Scouts was the boulder scrambling we had to do in order to hike up and down the rocky canyon. Great job to all the Scouts!
