|Camp Ramblewood ILSC|
Members of the Crew spent the weekend of November 19th and 20th at the Camp Ramblewood Environmental Learning Center in Sequim Bay State Park, hosted by Fox Island Crew 27 of the Pacific Harbors Council. Crew 27 is a new Venturing unit and wanted to have their first Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews (ILSC) and asked our Crew to run it. Three of members staffed the event (Jeff leading, Zack F and John providing backup), and three of our Crew's newest members came along as new ILSC participants (Robert, Trevor, and Sam).
The Camp Ramblewood complex turned out to be ideal for a training retreat weekend. There are heated cabins, lots of very nearby parking, and is open year round. It has the capacity for up to 66 people, can be rented during the off-season for only $10/person for as few as 15 people. The 1000 square foot lodge has a fireplace and full kitchen, too. We needed the heat, too, since the overnight low this weekend was 22 degrees in the woods alongside Sequim Bay.
Not counting our own, this was the 15th Crew that we have assisted with an ILSC. Remember, "Teaching Others" is one of the seven Methods in the Venturing program. Don't know the Venturing Methods and how they differ from Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting? Read this article.
