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.
