River Rats!

River Rats

After having recently revisited the Delaware River recently on the troop’s annual winter outing, I am reminded of some of our troop’s acquatic activities during the warmer months of May & June!  Every year our troop journeys to the Poconos for an ultra-fun day of white water rafting.  The trip is open to all family members and friends, so we typically have a large group.  Massive water fights on the river are inevitable.  And since several scout troops often participate in this event, it is not uncommon to assist another raft full of scouts that may have over-turned.  To encourage the development of the right core values of scouting, we require all scouts to generate 20 hours of community service hours in order to qualify for participating in this fun day-trip.  Evidently, given the consistently large turnout, the price of admission is well worth it!
