  • 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.
