2011 for our troop was an awesome year! We went camping every month, we worked on and received many merit badges and ranks, learned more skills at summer camp, and made lots of tips and fundraiser money.
Camping as a Boy Scout is much different than camping with the Cub scouts. Andrew, Robbie, and I, (Chris) are new to Boy Scouts and moved up in 2011. I think we all noticed a difference so far. Camping is different, no more pinewood derby, the handbooks are different, and the activities are different.

We all learned a lot this past year and earned a lot. We all liked Summer Camp at Allamuchy a.k.a Camp Somers. We all had a blast. We swam, shoot, lashed, went on boats, built a raft and much more!

The Christmas tree sale worked out great! We sold all but 2 trees. We plan on using the money for future camping trips and summer camp.

If you are reading this and thinking of joining us please do! This is just some of the things we do.
