Scouts and Cubs Attend Summer Camp

In June both the Troop and the Pack attended Summer camp.  The Pack attended the National Pike District summer day camp and the Troop attended Camp Rodney in Northeast, MD

The weather mostly cooperated so the boys were able to complete many Cub and Scout advancement requirements and have fun at the same time.

For several members of the Troop it was their first Boy Scout summer camp experience so they participated in the camp Brown Sea program designed for first year scouts.  They completed many of the advancement requirements for Tenderfoot through First Class Scout, played games, swam and generally bonded with other young scouts.

The older boys who had previously been to summer camp worked on various merit badtges of their choosing from Environmental Science to Boating.  Most importantly all of the boys made progress on the swimming requirements for advancing to First Class scout and the Swimming merit badge.

Thanks also to the adult leaders who took their own vacation time to spend the week supervising and helping out at camp.

Pack Attends the National Pike Summer Day Camp

In June the Pack participated in the day camp at the Howard County Fairgrounds.  It was a busy week that included some typically exciting Maryland summer weather.

The boys and several of our adult leaders joined into Dens of their appropriate Cub rank and completed many advancement requirements for the rank they will work on during the upcoming school year.

The boys got to try out many new skills including archery, knot tying and cooking. They also saw many cool demonstrations for STEM and emergency response and preparedness.  It all culminated in a family cookout out on the last evening of camp.
