Woodsmoke Rendezvous

 

Woodsmoke Rendezvous is an opportunity for Scouts and their adult leaders to learn about history, not by just studying it, but by living it!  Scouts camp in much the same conditions that mountain men of the American West experienced between the years of 1825 and 1840. Everyone participating in Woodsmoke Rendezvous should gain a new appreciation for what these men did to open the Western frontier.

Youth and adults will have the opportunity to learn first-hand how to make fire using a flint and steel, load and shoot a black powder rifle, use a crosscut saw, and throw a tomahawk or knife. Everyone will have the opportunity to learn by actively participating, or by just observing. Cooking in dutch ovens over an open fire, sleeping in canvas tents, and using other primitive camp gear will help everyone to gain more insight into the skills and conditions that the mountain men endured during the first half of the nineteenth century.
