“Be Prepared” sometimes means having a unique way to haul your gear to the car.
Scouts from Troop 353 camped at Seton Scout Reservation in Greenwich, CT for Wilderness Survival Weekend. We had a lot of fun building shelters in and around the campsite, even though it rained a little. Scouts had the option to sleep in their shelter, and if they didn’t want to, they slept in their tents. Several scouts finished the Wilderness Survival merit badge.
Scouts from Troop 353 spent a week at Camp Waubeeka in Brant Lake, New York. Scouts earned merit badges like First Aid, Indian Lore, Mammal Study and Kayaking. And at Camp Waubeeka, the scouts cooked all their own meals!
We had lots of fun and are looking forward to next summer.
Thanks to Mr. Kindberg and the other adults who stayed with us.
The weather wasn’t perfect, but Troop 353 and friends had a great time canoeing and camping last weekend at the 10th TMR Annual Frank McClusky Friendship Canoe Trip at Ten Mile River Scout Reservation.
Thanks to the Barker family for providing these photos.
Here it is, the main event. Scouts received their new ranks and merit badges at Troop 353’s spring court of honor. Thanks to our advancement coordinator Mr. Bierne for organizing and to all the parents who brought snacks.
