The troop had a great time at Lake Allatoona last week. Even though this was a second campout in September for our troop and was put together just a couple weeks out and scheduled over Cobb Fall Break, we still had a dozen happy campers to enjoy the terrific weather! It was a relaxing weekend of fishing, games, and fun. Some scouts even just used the time to relax out it nature. Our make up troop outing wasn’t the only thing happening at Lake Allatoona though. Troop 2319 would like to give an extra shout out to Todd & Connor Angel and Steve Carlin for completing their first of three High Adventure Resource Training weekends for Powder Horn! Thanks for stopping by our campsite in your free time. As always, click the collage below to check out the full album!
We had a great scout picture day! Check your email for the link to the full set of photos, but for now, check out how great these pics came out! We look forward to continuing this tradition of having a scout picture day every year so parents have an extra record of just how much can change in a single year.
On this camping trip we went to historic Red Clay State Park to earn the Indian Lore merit badge. We were taught by a Cherokee Indian named Jamie Russell. Jamie taught us about the different dances and social life of the Cherokee. He also taught us about the combat and hunting methods of the Cherokee. Saturday afternoon we played some of the games he taught us and we built model wigwam homes. The last thing we did was share Native American stories, signals, or discuss famous Native American people. As always, click the collage below to see the full album of pictures! Gavin H.

A big thank you to the youth and adults who got home from this weekend’s camp out and came right back out to Unity to help get setup for their World Day of Prayer Celebration. Although I didn’t make it last year, I hear that it is a really cool event. If you’re available, I highly recommend trying to stop by Unity beginning this Wednesday night (overnight) through Thursday Afternoon! Thanks again to everyone who helped!
