Summer Camp 2015

On the week of July 12th to 18th, the troop went on its annual trip to summer camp.  This year, 52 scouts and adults from our troop visited Camp Parsons in Washington.  The troop has not visited this camp in 7 years, and all were excited to go.  Scouts enjoyed activities such as swimming, boating, crafts, rifle shooting, archery, scout craft, merit badges relating to conservation and the environment, and more!  The troop also got to participate in four events held by the camp staff.  The first was a music festival, then a beach bonanza, then a staff production of Frozen, and finally a Hullabaloo.  On Wednesday night, our troop got together with Troop 80 from Magnolia to participate in an inter- troop campfire. This included a hot dog eating contest between Senior Patrol Leaders and a ton of skits.  At the end of the week, the troop succeeded in earning Honor Troop, an award given to troops that work extra hard at camp.  Everybody had an awesome experience.  by Timothy
