On April 23rd and 25th, the troop went out and cleaned up Franklin for Earth day. In order to maintain social distancing. there were multiple sites to go clean up, and all of them were eventually cleaned of trash. This was a good way to give back to our community, while staying safe at the same time.
On January 24, the troop arrived at Camp Resolute for the Freeze-out, previously known as the Klondike Derby. We participated in really fun events, like sled racing. Even though it was extremely cold, the competition and games made it all worthwhile. Like always, the trip was a blast and everyone had a lot of fun.
On November 22nd the troop arrived in New Hampshire for our Hiking Trip. Our campsite was Camp Split Rock, which was about a 30 minute drive from the mountain. We spent the next day hiking up Mount Wachusett, which was a very fun hike. We stayed at the peak for about a half hour to see everything around us before going back down. It was a really fun trip and we all had a great time.
On October 25th, the troop went to Rocky Woods Reservation in Medfield to have a cook-off with each other’s patrols. There was never a winner announced, but everyone had a great time together. We also went on a hike during that trip as well, which was really fun.
On September 28th, the troop took a ferry to Lovells Island in Boston. We discovered lot of cool things there, like a bunker inside of a hill. We played a lot of games there like capture the flag, which was a favorite. We also roamed the beach to try to find anything cool there. On top of that, there was a beautiful sunset at night that we got a perfect view of. Overall, it was a really fun trip with a lot of fun memories.
