Welcome back everyone!

This September we had an equipment check where we checked the equipment, primarily tents, to see if they were suitable for camping and make repairs to any tents that needed fixing.

Looking forward to a great year!

2015 October – Highland Games

Tartans

This year’s Camporee was held at the Wrentham Developmental Center, and the theme was the long awaited Highland Games! As usual, scouts had tons of fun at each of the different activities, such as the Caber Toss, Hoist the Sheep, and Tug of War. The events were adorned with Scottish flair, and our troop even made different colored tartans for each of our patrols, or clans as they were known as for the weekend. This trip was much anticipated, and it proved to be as much fun as the scouts expected!

For the first trip of the year, we went to Lovell’s island in Boston Harbor. We took a chartered boat from UMass 7 miles out to the small island. After the tents were set up and we had lunch, all the patrols split up and explored the island. We spent the whole afternoon exploring in patrols.

Before Christmas break, we went to Rock Spot to do some Indoor Rock Climbing. Scouts could climb all night, as well as climbing in the dark. There was a bouldering wall that some scouts could overcome and make it to the top of! We slept inside the Climbing Gym, woke up, did a bit more climbing, then left.
