Wow! It was truly a special weekend at Camp Pahatsi in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains on the weekend of August 19-21, 2011. This one-time site for a Golden Empire Council Camp became the setting for a great activity planned by Troop 380. Troop 601, Troop 363, Troop 243, Troop 44 (from Nevada), Crew 380, and Crew 808 joined us for the event.
