November 15-17 we will have an event at Camp 175 that we like to call “Survival Skills Weekend”. This year we will be focusing on Orienteering and “Escape & Evasion” exercises. Troop 2096 was one of the first Troops in the area to add this exciting type of weekend. On Saturday at 2pm we will host registered Webelos. Send us an email if you have a Webelos that would like to come and learn some fun survival tips and enjoy campfire with us to complete the Arrow of Light requirement to participate in a Boy Scout Troop Outdoor activity.
This is consistently mentioned by Scouts year after year as one of the favorite trips we do. A big thank you to Ed Setzler for being in charge of the events and activities this year. Activities included First Aid, Orienteering, fire building, signaling, creating and sleeping in wilderness shelters and eating food that is “foraged” by using our land navigation skills. Mr. Dan Bonham even brought his “gilly suit” to use while hiding in the woods to capture our escape and evasion targets!
