This year, our expanded Troop returned to the District's annual Competition Camp with 3 full patrols, the Beavers, the Moose, and the composite Polar-Tigers. This year’s camp focused on the theme of "Back to Basics". The Venturers running the camp ran events including fire lighting, pioneering, a trust hike, and a first aid challenge. The Scouts camped in a separate area from the leaders. All cooking and activities were done as a patrol and evaluated, and each patrol had to cook for a group of leaders Saturday night. The highlight of the afternoon was the infamous "Tug O' War" competition which pitted the Scouts against the other Troops, the Pathfinders, and the leaders.
Once again, the "Best Patrol" award went to a Pathfinder Unit, though all our Patrols finished in the top ten out of 17 Patrols.. The Beaver Patrol, under Troop Leader Jeff's leadership, rose to an impressive 2nd place finish, a best ever for our Troop. Next year, watch out Pathfinders!!!!!
