The 2016 trip will be a tall ship sailing adventure on a vessel that is more than 70 feet long.
In this weeklong odyssey you will snorkel several reefs as you sail among the fabulous Florida Keys. Along the way, you will troll for mackerel, barracuda, and mahi-mahi, hoping to supplement the ship’s stores. Among the highlights of your adventure are sailing to a small archipelago of islands, fishing, snorkeling, and maybe even catching some lobster. It is a rugged extended voyage on a large vessel. Everyone pitches in with the sailing and cooking chores. You’ll do on-board navigation, star study, and lots of snorkeling and fishing—but you won’t be waited on. If you are up to the challenge, this is the adventure for you. This is a seven-night, eight-day adventure.
There will be a new trail program at Firelands Scout Reservation this summer. This program includes new maps and activities for each of the 5 trails at FSR, and new awards that will be available for completing each stage of the program. These awards are intended for both youth and adult hikers who complete the requirements listed HERE. The requirements for these hikes are progressive. If a Scout follows the recommended order, that Scout will gradually be introduced to more and more advanced features of the Scouting program. Scouts are encouraged to enjoy the trails at Firelands, whether working on requirements for these or other awards or taking a casual hike. Scouts are reminded that there are many hiking related requirements that can be completed on the trails at FSR, including Second Class requirement 1b (the OA trail is 5 miles long) and Hiking merit badge requirement 5 (by chaining numerous trails together).
