As you may have read in our previous post, our very own Paul Dutton helped to build, and paid for, the entire deck of the master cabin at Camp Silver Fir near Huntington Lake in the High Sierras of Central California.

The Boy Scouts’ Camp in the High Sierras

Paul and other volunteers of the Verdugo Hills Council go up every Memorial Day Weekend to open the camp for the Boy Scouts of America. He and other volunteers then return every Labor Day Weekend to close the camp until the next season.

Paul Dutton as Camp Master

As Paul explained, there are over thirty men that take turns as Camp Master each season, based on their points status. Since Paul has been involved with the camp for over forty years, he has one of the highest point totals. Whomever has the highest point total gets first choice of the week they want as Camp Master.

This year they noticed that the deck needed to be restained, which seems fitting since it has been at least four years since it was build. Paul has just returned from a week at the cabin where did just that, as well as attend to his other duties as Camp Master which include watching over any gear and vehicles that are left behind at this high adventure hiking camp.
