Wilderness Survival Weekend at Seton Scout Reservation


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.

Thanks to Mr. C for the donuts!

Camp Waubeeka

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.

Orienteering Hike at Durland Scout Reservation

On Saturday, scouts from Troop 353 participated in a 2km (1.2 mile) orienteering hike at Durland Scout Reservation. We also learned to estimate the size of objects and obstacles.

The scouts that attended were able to complete several requirements for First and Second Class ranks.

Thanks to Mr. Liverance for leading the hike!
