Winter Outing to Camp Greilick

posted by Webmaster Troop 1005   [ updated ]

On Friday February 15th the scouts returned to camp Greilick which was originally a scout owned camp now opened to the public.They arrived at the camp quite late while most of the campers stayed in a heated cabin, 3 scouts and 2 adult leaders chose to sleep in tents in single degree weather.


Boy Scout Troop 1005 Ice Fishing

The following day, some of the scouts decided to go ice fishing while others chose to stay back at camp to have some free time playing in the snow and building snow forts.


By the end of the morning the scouts that went fishing came back with (unfortunately) no fish, and the people that made forts were very successful. Later on all the scouts went in the cabin and made some lunch composed of sandwiches and chips. After a pretty rushed lunch, we all drove to Mt. Holiday for some skiing and evening tubing.

After many hours of skiing the scouts ate some dinner, and later gathered by two very smooth and steep hills for some insanely fast tubing. The ride down was so fast that you couldn't even breathe. After, went back to the cabin for some sleep.



The following day the scouts cleaned up the whole cabin including mopping, and sweeping. Then we all left for home.

Troop 1005 at Wright Patterson AFB

posted Jan 23, 2019, 4:31 PM by Webmaster Troop 1005   [ updated Jan 24, 2019, 3:32 AM ]

Wright Patterson Air Force Base


On Friday, November 16, 2018, Troop 1005 returned to the Wright Patterson Air Force Base after not being there for over 5 years. This was a very exciting and anticipated outing for the scouts. The drive was about 3 hours long.


The next day the troop made a variety of breakfast backpacking food, for the fun it. Then had a quick drive to the main Wright Patterson museum. Inside the scouts were absolutely amazed by the sights and architecture in the museum. In the museum the scouts got to look around and board different planes from wars like WWI,WWII, Cold war, Vietnam, Korean, and even present day planes.

All of the scouts thought boarding the planes was really cool because you got to put yourself in the pilot's shoes. They also got to play around with flight simulators that actually rocked you around and were really cool and loads of fun.


After the fun free roaming they all went to the Wright Patterson movie theater and saw a movies about the Navy and the Air Force base. They then went back to the campsite and had some amazing homemade pizza, and later spent some time at the Kitty Hawk lanes bowling center at wright Patterson.

The following day (on Sunday) the scouts took off to head back home.
