  • Family Camp / Selenite Crystal Digging

    September 21st, 2014 September has always been the best month of the year for camping with our Troop Family. This year's Troop 15 family camp began on Friday, September 19th, with an adventure to the Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge, near Jet, Oklahoma to dig for selenite crystals. With over 51 participants, including Scouts, Webelos, and scouting parents...this year's family camp brought on 'summer camp' style logistics and planning.

  • Tour of National Treasures (TNT) - By Cole

    The first day of our Tour of National Treasures trip started at 6 am, when it was time to load our personal gear into the van.  We then headed to the OKC airport and gave our PG to the worker in the departure terminal, got our tickets, and waited there until we boarded the plane. The flight was 3 or 4 hours long and they served us drinks. When we landed we got our stuff and took a bus to the hotel where we were staying.

  • Tour of National Treasures (TNT) - By Blake

    At the beginning of the day we went to the visitors center for Colonial Williamsburg where we got our tickets. First we got on a bus and went to the city of Colonial Williamsburg itself. There we took a tour of the Capitol building where we got to pretend we were representatives of the people and we declared independence.

  • 2014 October; Up, Up, and Away- Albuquerque New Mexico

    October and an extended OKCPS Fall break schedule mean only one thing...another exciting adventure for Troop 15! After departing First Presbyterian Church on Friday October 10th, 17 members of Troop 15 hit the road with their scout spirit and high expectations of being a part of the 43rd annual International Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, NM. Traveling was cut into two legs, OKC to Santa Rosa, NM and then Santa Rosa to Albuquerque.

  • Summer Camp 2012 Tres Ritos, New Mexico

    The base camp experience at Tres Ritos Boy Scout Summer Camp this year was one of the best of my scouting career. We won the spirit stick the first day and although we didn't win it again I feel we continued to be the loudest and proudest. The boys did a wonderful job of listening and carrying out their jobs.

  • Summer Camp 2012 Backpacking Pacos Packers - 35 +/- mile hike

    Our Tres Ritos Boy Scout Summer Camp "Pacos Packers" experience wasn't like some of the others, there was a lot more walking and a lot less talking. We got to enjoy more of New Mexico than the other boys on a week long hike on a trail called pecos packers. The one we went on was a 38 mile hike through the glorious mountain ranges.

  • 2012 Boy Scout Summer Camp, Backpacking the Pacos Packers 45 Mile Hike

    On Monday we set out from the Tres Ritos Boy Scout Summer Camp base area on our 45 mile "Pacos Packers" hike. The next day, we climbed up a mountain to see the breathtaking view that was the Santa Barbara Divide, after a nearly a two hour break for lunch we worked our way down the mountain to Pecos Falls for the night. After a chilly night, we went on a day hike which was cut short by some summer rain and sleet.

  • 2012 X-Treme Winter Camp at Tres Ritos

    The Troop 15 (Yea!) boy scout winter camp at Camp Tres Ritos this year was the best and the coldest by far. Once we got there the cold mountain air hit us and we unpacked. We were surprised by the height of the snow, which was to our thigh and it was nearly impossible to walk through.
