Troop 114 at Camp Wanocksett
Post date: Jul 8, 2013 7:04:49 PM
We had a very successful week at Camp Wanocksett. The troop earned the coveted Golden Broom, awarded daily for the tidiest campsite, not just once but twice, with the high honor of bringing it home at the end of the week. We also had the dubitable distinction of the Golden Band-Aid, awarded to the troop most frequently sighted at the health lodge (nothing big, but effects of the warm humid weather, skeeters, minor scrapes and a charlie horse kept the nurses occupied).
We practiced the patrol method by forming provisional patrols, which competed throughout the week for recognition beads.
Aidan D, patrol leader
Noah S, assistant patrol leader
Danny M, patrol leader
Kevin M, assistant patrol leader
Ben K, senior patrol leader
Jacob B, assistant senior patrol leader
By week's end the Ravens topped the Pumas in the patrol competition with a score of 20 to 16. The winning patrol got complimentary treats from the Trading Post.
We completed six Boards of Review at camp, with the following rank advancements.
Danny M, tenderfoot
Josh A, second class
Kevin M, second class
Allen K, second class
Jacob B, first class
Aidan D, first class
Finally, the troop gave recognition to:
Noah S, Honor Camper
Neal F, Scout Spirit
Josh A, Patrol Spirit
Noah S, Best Waiter
Danny M, Most Merit Badges
Neal F, Best Buddy
Thanks to all campers for helping to make summer camp a big success!
