Gear Up for Camping!

It's a great time of year to find great deals on all that gear you've been dreaming of!  A good sleeping bag, tent and pack can be the difference between an "okay" adventure, and a "GREAT" adventure.  

Let's use the comments section here to post some of the deals we find this season.  We have a lot of camping experience in this group, so if you have questions, please ask.

I'll start things off.

Mountain Hardware has all backpacks, tents and sleeping bags 50% off right now!

2018-08 Court of Honor/Cookoff

Troop 84 had a lot of fun during this years Cookoff/ Court of Honor. We started with 2 hours to cook, and then we set our meals in a buffet style line in the church. After everything was eaten, we then proceeded to the Court of Honor. This was the first one after summer camp, so as we expected, there were a ton of merit badges awarded. Similarly, many ranks were handed out too, mostly to the newer scouts but with some exeptions. My hope is that everyone enjoyed this event as much as I did.

DREW Reed (from Troop 560) EAGLE SCOUT SERVICE PROJECT

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 4:00 PM - Join us as we run & walk for all abilities at the 7th annual Steps of Faith 5K & Food Drive on Sunday, Sept 16, 4pm in Westerville, Ohio @Alum Creek Park!  Proceeds will support special needs children in central Ohio (Heinzerling Community) and Nicaragua (Tesoros de Dios / Bradley's House of Hope).

Summer camp

Troop 84 had a blast on this years summer camp at Camp Falling Rock. We spent 7 days and 6 nights earning merit badges, most of which were easy considering the ratio of counselers to scouts was 2:1. Everybody got a variety of merit badges, but none could meet the troop record of 14 merit badges earned at summer camp. Many of our newer scouts participated in Pathways, formerly known as Brown Sea, to get asclose as they can to first class.
