3-           How young is youngest recommended to attend?  With a parent we could go to 10 – but it is recommended that they be with a parent

5-           What do we need to bring?  Bring rain gear for sure, layer up as it can be windy and rainy out at Zamora that time of year.  Water is available on the course.  We provide the ammo and ear plugs.

Hello families of Troop 224, 

I am starting my Eagle Scout project at the East Bay Community Recovery Project. The EBCRP is a thriving residential, co-occurring substance use and mental health treatment program for mothers and children.

I am building a bench with a planter, an outdoor chalkboard, and installing a sunshade.

I need help with the staining of all the wood on one day and help to install the projects at the center another day. Refreshments will be served.

Any questions, text me at 925-818-2394 or email me drew.campillo@gmail.com

Here is the link to the sign-up genius

Snow Camping

Posted on Feb 6 2018 - 11:16am

Troop 224 Snow Camping Trip Sign Up Here

Do you want to spend the night in a snow cave that you built? Sign up for the Troop 224 Snow Camping trip on the troop website. The proposed date for the trip is March 24, which is the beginning of Spring Break, and subject to snow conditions. If you want to go, but can’t go that weekend, then email Mr. Van Oss. The plan is to leave Lafayette very early Saturday morning, drive up to the snow, dig a cave, campout, and return early Sunday morning. We’ll explain what to bring and have a gear check the Monday before. No special equipment is required other than a warm sleeping bag. The temperature inside the cave is 32 degrees Fahrenheit, which is warmer than some years on Yosemite trip.
