The troop had a great time at Camp Sidney Dew this weekend. For some scouts, this was the first experience with cold weather camping, but everyone seemed to stay warm and have fun. Most of the scouts worked on their Emergency Preparedness merit badge in the morning and then spent the afternoon exploring this fantastic scout camp.

A small group of brave and intrepid scouts and scouters took a brisk 19 mile trek along sections of the Appalachian and Benton Mackaye Trails as part of the backpacking Merit Badge. Rain, cold, and snoring campers did not keep this group from having a great time along the way.
