March 2018 Camping
Camping at the Horseshoe Scouting Reservation.

Troop 66 went to the horseshoe Scouting reservation March 16 to the 18th. The camping
trip featured a hike (pictured below) as well as the Golden skillet competition. There was only two
patrols as they had to be combined because of how many people want.

The hike was a few miles and the troop was able to see the Mason-Dixen Line (The border
between the Pennsylvania). Members of the troops that went described the hike as rewarding.
They also said that the orienteering course was very helpful. After the hike, the troops started
getting ready for the Golden skillet competition. After hours of cooking and preparing, the
overall winners were the great food patrol. There theme for the Golden skillet winners was an
Indian food theme. The main course was chicken curry rice and broccoli. Their patrols in the
great food patrol were the pop tart and bagel patrol.

Many of the people that want said that they loved the camping trip. The Golden skillet was,
as always, a tough competition. The continuation of this challenge has helped many people learn
how to cook their own meals. The hike was also helpful because of the skills required to hike
along the path. Overall, this camping trip was a success.

September 2017 Camping at TMR

Canoeing 10 Miles

Troop 66 went on a camping trip from September 15 to 17 at Ten Mile River scout
camp. It took almost 3 hours to drive to TMR scout camp. It was a traditional tent
camping trip, however the meals were cooked on propane. The main event of the
camping trip was canoeing down the Delaware river. The troop had to drive to a stop
where a bus came to pick up the troop. After getting on the bus, the troop got to the
starting point on the Delaware river. Older scouts were paired up with the younger scouts
in 2 person canoes. The entire troop was able to stay together down the course of the
river. There were also some bald eagles flying by overhead.

After about 5 hours, the canoeing portion of the trip had to come to a close. The
troop went back to the camping site, where the scouts did rank advancement. After that,
there was a troop campfire. Patrols unfortunately did not make up any original skits.
Younger scouts went to bed after the campfire. After a regular PLC, everyone went to
bed. The troop got up the next morning and left much earlier than expected.
