From June 30 to July 6, 2014, twenty scouts and leaders from Troop 59 went to Islamorada, Florida home of the Seabase High Adventure camp. It was an early Sunday morning, waking up at 2 o’clock to make it to Pittsburgh, PA. Then on to Atlanta, GA, and afterward to Miami, FL. That night we safely arrived at Seabase. The next morning, we hit the road to Key West, where the Spirit of Independence, an 80 foot Schooner was docked. Around lunchtime we departed on our trek around to the coral reefs where we saw a diverse array of aquatic wildlife. Over the next few days, we were able to cook, snorkel, raise and lower the sails, sleep on the deck, steer the boat, and make a lot of awesome memories. For the fourth of July, we anchored off the coast of Key West to watch the fireworks. We spent the next day in Key West, stopping at gift shops, aquariums, and museums. We attended mass later that night, then off to dinner. The next morning we rode back to Seabase, where we packed up at went to the Luau that night. We enjoyed games of volleyball, poison barrel, and limbo. A delicious dinner was served along with each troop’s skit afterward. After breakfast the next day we took a shuttle to Miami to fly back home. Overall everyone had a great experience.
From June 29 to July 5, 2014 Troop 59 left for their week long trip to Custaloga Town. Upon arrival, the scouts picked a campsite that was already prepared for them. Shortly after the morning flag ceremony the next day, everyone started to work on their merit badges. The merit badge schedules for each scout were organized into five different periods. During each period every scout worked on a different merit badge. This schedule continued for the rest of the week. The scouts enjoyed the camp and learned how to do new things.
