Boy Scout Troop has a busy Fall schedule

The Troop ended their summer by camping on Hart Miller Island in the Chesapeake Bay.  This is a unique camping experience since the only way to access the camping area is by a boat ride from shore.  This makes for a challenging camping experience since everything (food, water, gear) must come by boat too.  There is no quick running out to retrieve forgotten gear.  The Scouts were up to the challenge and ended up having a very memorable camping experience.

Now that school has started the guys are busy every minute.  Besides Troop activities many of guys play fall sports so it is a balancing act between, school (number 1), Scouts and sports.  We will be helping our Cub pack that he District with the Cub Scout Bike Rodeo and the Webelos-O-Ree.  In addition, the Troop will attend the District Orienteering Day in late October and go camping again in November.

First Camping Experiences for the Pack
Many of our Cub Scouts had their first camping experience at Camp Oest over the weekend of October 4-5.  Friday night was rainy but the weather turned beautiful on Saturday although maybe a little cool.  We have a lot of accomplished fisherman in our Pack and the camping went quite well because everyone was prepared. Learning the Boy Scout motto already!


A busy Fall for Troop and Pack 613!
