Troop 4 traveled up to Maine and had the chance to canoe or kayak on the Saco River. A few people got wet, but a good time was had by all.
We stayed at Camp Sayre with the Webelo II from Pack 4. It was a little chilly, but the boys showed the cub scout some scout skills including fire building, tent setup and ax yard.
The troop tried somewhere new this month as we camped at Nobscot Scout Reservation. We stayed in a cabin, enjoyed a hike to the fire tower and did some great cooking!
As usual, we participated in the district Klondike. It was rather warm and no snow! The scouts participated in several challenges and our adult volunteers ran some of the events.
The annual lock-in at the Second Congregational Church. It was another up-all-night party. The boys made a great homemade dinner and all ate together family style. Other than cooking, the boys played different games throughout the church all night.
Troop 4 stayed at Wah Tut Ca scout camp and traveled up to Gunstock for a tubing trip. This is always a favorite trip for the boys. Even though it was a warm winter, the mountain had plenty of man-made snow to fly down on.
We are lucky to have some Assistant Scoutmasters who have property in New Hampshire and let the Troop camp there. This month we camped along the river at Caron Cabin. This trip focused on a lot of advancement. The boys also climbed Mt. Major and took in some amazing views. The boys also made some amazing meals.
We traveled to Manchester NH where we stayed at Camp Carpenter. It was family weekend, so the boys were able to partake in lots of activities including BB guns, archery, run around the Fort and mini-golf. We also visited the Scout Museum which was great for the boys to see.
For our final trip of the 2015-2016 year, we went to Pawtuckaway State Park. We enjoyed the beach, a hike to the fire tower, but didn't enjoy the bugs! Cooking on the trail was fun.
This year was SUPER FANTASTIC! We are excited to plan for next year so stay tuned for more updates!
