Summer Fun at Camp Cherry Valley
Death Valley Camping Trip
Camp Cherry Valley was an excellent Summer Camp trip for the troop. Many things were achieved as many of us earned our merit badges, went on insane and fun hikes, swam in the beautiful beaches of Catalina Island but also many of the scouts felt like they personally found good friends within the troop that […]
Big Dalton Backpacking Trip
In late October a group of scouts ventured to Death Valley for a camping and sand boarding trip. During the adventure the scouts got to visit the lowest point in the United States (282 feet below sea level). They also got to walk in the Devil’s Golf Course. It is a unique desert area featuring […]
Apple Picking at Riley’s Farm

Bike to the Beach
After an early morning structure fire devastated the Riley’s Farm Los Rios Rancho property, the apples needed picking, as precious resources had to be taken to help with the fire damage. Troop 483 spent a day picking apples for Riley’s Farm apple cider. It was a very productive day and they were very appreciative of our help.
YMCA Camp Surf
Biking to the beach was a big hit. We hope to make this an anual event. In all, we had 20 boys bike the 22 miles from Yorba Regional Park to Huntington Beach. After being canceled the previous week due to rain, it ended up being a perfect Southern California day for a bike ride.
On Labor Day weekend, 11 scouts from the troop, 3 cub scouts, one sibling and 7 adults attended the YMCA Camp Surf Family Weekend. Tents were set up on the sand right next to the water and the weather was perfect beach weather. There were many activities for everyone: Gaga Ball, Archery, Arts and Crafts, […]

Most of the boys earned 4-5 merrit badges from this experience. The boys […]
On June 15, 2019, Troop 483 boys participated in the 34th annual Daughters of the Revolutionary War Flag Retirement Ceremony. Boys from the troop prepared the flags for burning and laid each flag into the fire after displaying them to the audience in a quiet and respectful manner.
