The leaders of Troop 84 are committed to bring the entire scouting program to each youth member. As one of the 8 methods of scouting, a robust outdoor program is vital to a complete scouting experience. A love of the outdoors and the values of scouting drive us to provide a safe environment. With COVID-19 now in our lives forever, nothing has changed in that commitment to our scouts. Presently the state health restrictions are beginning to ease and we are dedicated to implementing all the current health orders, guidelines, and recommendations from federal, state, and local authorities.
This March, Troop 84 took a trip to Camp Falling Rock for Camping 303. Scouts learned many skills and had lots of fun.
We started off Saturday with some dutch oven cooking for breakfast. Then we went into some stations where we taught Knots, Firebuilding and First Aid.
Next after lunch we did another set of 45 minute stations which included knife axe and saw use, map and compass use and lashings. We followed the stations with a lashings relay race which was won by the Tomahawk Patrol.
This February, Troop 84 took a trip up to Otter Run for this year's Skiing Campout!
The first thing that the scouts encountered upon arrival was about 2 whole feet of snow on the ground! The scouts had to physically dig out places for their tents to go! It was a new experience for almost everyone!
This January Troop 84 went on a spectacular campout themed around the production, filming, and editing of movies!
Although it was cold out we still had a blast and even got to do some activities like a cobbler-cook-off between the two of our most talented cooks, Aiden and Aaron. At the end of the day, the scouts also went to our little "Homemade Theatre", where we watched Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith!
