Feb. 28 – March 2nd 2014 : Calico Ghost Town Camping

We had a great weekend at Calico Camping this weekend.  I was told it rained here all day Saturday and it was raining very hard.  While everyone was stuck indoors here, we had a great time outdoors.  We had 1.5 hours of hard rain on Saturday afternoon but it didn’t bothered us.  We were well prepared for it.  While it was raining, the scouts just kept on going with their scout training inside the pop-up tent with tarped walls and heated inside.  It was raining here on Friday night but it was dry when we arrived and set up camp.  We had the entire camping loop all for ourselves.
On Saturday morning, we went to Calico Ghost Town and had a wonderful time.  We looked in some shops, looked at museum, and climbed the hills with silver mining caves.  We even took some great pictures with scouts and adults inside the mini caves throughout the hill side.  Some scouts/parents went on a horseback riding trip.  We ride on a train and had a tour of the silver mining areas.  We had a tour inside the mining cave.  We had a tour of the mysterious shack and saw balls that rolled up instead of down, water that went up stream, we were standing at a 40 degree angle on the floor, and also, I wasn’t able to stand up while sitting on a chair.
Three of the new scouts completed and earned their boy scout totin chip and fire N chit.  Scouts also completed some of their tenderfoot requirements.  A few of the cub scout siblings joined us and had fun throughout the weekend.  We capped it all with a great dinner and a campfire on Saturday night.
Excellent weekend.  We had fun touring the Calico Ghost Town AND worked on scout requirements also.  This is what Boy Scout activity was meant to be.

It was amazing. These kids I am so extremely proud of that made up there with no problem. What a trooper! I tell you it was no easy breezy hike.
We had caught over 30 fishes, taught the kids how to gut it and clean it, and cook it. We made bow and arrow and sling shots.
