Back in the saddle again!
This year 323 and 3323 sent 27 scouts and 7 adults to session 2 for a most excellent summer camp experience.
323 – 20 Scouts and 4 adults
3323 – 7 scouts and 2 adults
2021 introduced the troop to a new campsite and a new way of doing Geronimo. This year we occupied Camp Site 6 and 7 and we operated as a cohort moving as a group rather than individuals from one activity area to another. This provided an opportunity for the Scouts in the troop to bond as a unit and make new friends with other scouts in the same cohort. The new campsites provided a shoddy retreat from the other areas of camp where the troop could spend time working on service projects and merit badge homework, or just hanging out for a friendly card game.
The troop did many hikes and events as a group including the Totem to totem Hike, East Webber Trail, Tiger eye navigation course, Polar Bear Swim, Tenderfoot run, and more.
Six of our Scouts participated in Brown Sea Island, completing most of the requirements needed for Tenderfoot Second and first-class in addition to earning the swimming and fingerprinting merit badges.
