Luckiest And/Or Most Traumatized Cub Scouts Ever Accidentally Stumble Onto Nudist Beach

Is that good for a merit badge?

A pack of cub scouts comprised of 9 and 10-year-olds got an eyeful when an innocent hike along the San Diego coastline turned into an all-you-can-see ogle-fest.

The adventurous youngins were navigating the trails at Torrey Pines State Beach, probably singing scout songs or making fart noises or whatever it is little boys find amusing. That’s when their troop leader accidentally led them down to Black’s Beach, which is notorious for its nude sunbathers.

I only participated in Girl Scouts when I was younger (Brownies, woot woot!), but I’m assuming there’s no cub scout badge you can earn for “being scarred for life by saggy beach butts.”

A statement from the San Diego Imperial Council says that parents who were supervising the trip panicked and “quickly rerouted” the group to “protect the youth.”


According to NBC San Diego, the troop leader wasn’t punished for the field trip gone awry. Scout leaders met with parents after the hike and assured them all appropriate steps were taken to shield the boys’ innocent eyes.

But, some things just can’t be unseen, and I think it’s pretty safe to say the boys of Troop 766 went home as changed men that day.
