This past month we camped indoors in the Jadel Center at Camp Crown. We had 26 Scouts and 9 Adults. Our new Scouts were led by our Troop Guides who guided them on setting up camp, tents, food preparation and cleanup (also known as KP – Kitchen Patrol). Contrary to what most children tell adults, they can do dishes.
Other activities included working on Scoutcraft skills, rank advancement, a hike, team building games, our campfire program, and a little free time. A busy Scout is a happy Scout.
The Adult Patrol enjoyed Peach-French Toast for breakfast, soup/sandwiches for lunch, lasagna for dinner and chocolate cake for desert Saturday night. Of note, the soup with lunch was Peanut Butter soup. Never had that before. It was quite good. Love it when the Adult Patrol experiments with the menu. (Trying to get the Scout Patrols to do the same…)
It was a great turnout at Feed My Starving Children yesterday! Our group packed 143 boxes that will feed 84 children for a year! Thank you to all that attended! If anyone took pictures at last night’s event, please feel free to share!
Thank you to those that organized and volunteered for today’s service event at St. Gilbert’s Church. Today marked St. Gilbert’s 49th annual gift-giving program! So many generous parishioners donated so many amazing gifts that will be dropped off at Catholic Charities and gifted to over 400 children. It was truly an amazing and heartwarming site.
In January we headed up to Indian Mounds Scout Reservation for our winter sports campout. Joining us we had Webelos and their families. Everyone had a great time Skiing, Snowboarding, and Tubing at the Sunburst ski area.
New to the Troop 96 websites, it’s the MacScouter’s Big Book of Skits. 114 pages of Skits and “The Invisible Bench” is just one of them. Will you accept the challenge to introduce a new skit to the troop campfire? Open the book
