Help us protect and improve the natural ecology of this mountain! We will pull invasive weeds at the entrance of the parking lot, allowing species planted last winter to continue thriving. This park is home to rare plants and animals such as the endangered San Bruno elfin butterfly, mission blue butterfly, and San Bruno manzanita!
Meet at the main parking lot near the entrance off of Guadalupe Canyon parkway.
Wear your class B uniforms, with a long sleeve shirt underneath. Long pants are highly recommended. No flip flops or open-toed shoes! Bring along a bottle of water.

Dutch Oven Day will show you how to eat really well (REALLY well) when you’re outdoors car camping. Coal preparation, tools, positioning, and recipes will be discussed, with each patrol competing to create the best dish and the chance to sample everyone’s results at the end.
This is for Scouts who have a Position of Responsibility (SPL, ASPL, Patrol Leaders, Scribe, Quartermaster, Historian, etc.). Space is limited. If you do not have a Position of Responsibility you may not be able to attend.
Please pack for “car camping” but be sure to bring something warm to wear in the early morning and late evening. Temperatures will fluctuate.
There will be games intermixed with the schedule that will be detailed at a later time.

Established in 1979, the Fort Miley Adventure Challenge Course (FMACC) is located on the northwestern edge of San Francisco. The FMACC offers a fun, safety conscious and positive environment for individuals and groups to work together to develop confidence, trust, cooperation and leadership skills through actions. Our course is built out of trees, with cables, ladders and ropes located in a 4 acre urban forest in a nations park. PLI is a proud partner of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), a unit of the National Park Service to make these adventures at Fort Miley possible.
Our ropes course is a progression of low team-based elements and high challenge elements built in the trees of San Francisco using cables, ladders and ropes. This sequence of “elements” uses physical, emotional and mental challenges that employ both human and rope safety systems to encourage team development, support, trust, leadership and personal goal-setting. With 20 low and 8 high elements at FMACC, PLI will work with you to tailor the program to match your group and their goals.
