Scouts - Our last meeting for summer 2018 (can it be fall already?) will be the Troop’s annual fun night, 8/28/2018 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the Upper Gwynedd Park Side Place Pavilion. Enjoy a rousing volley ball game. Bring any games that may challenge your competitive spirit, but leave the lawn darts at home. The Troop will provide refreshments.

Start planning now to join Troop 152 on our September Camping Trip 9/21 – 9/23. We will camp at BSA Camp Lavigne, visit Ricketts Glen State Park water fall trail, and spend an evening at the Bloomsburg Fair. This is one of our favorite trips. Watch for the permission slip being emailed and also will be available on the Troop’s website.

So I may have spoken too soon about rain in last month's Newsletter! The weather forecast for our week at Resica was nothing short of apocalyptic! Many prepared scouts took heed of our warning and brought tarps to cover their already drenched camp tents. For those of you who saw pictures of camp "Chippewaters" you know the weather held true to the forecast. Undeterred and a little damp, our Scouts carried on throughout their scheduled merit badge classes and indoor campfires in the hot and steamy dining hall. In their down time, many of the scouts honed their chess skills while others tended to their battles on Polytopia. We enjoyed our traditional pizza snack on Thursday night and funnel cakes after Friday’s closing campfire. Despite the weather and all the other distractions, the scouts were able to earn 78 merit badges. We emerged at the end our week, mostly unscathed (one leader required two stiches), waterlogged, and hopefully a bit more skilled. With another summer camp in the books, there are a few more weeks of summer scouting activities before our prime time fall camping. See you on the trail.
