Awesome campout at the Ski Cabin

Posted on Jan 25 2023 - 10:20am

The campout at the Ski Cabin last weekend was a success, and the Scouts all want to go back there again, and do more winter cabin camping.

The cure for Zombie outbreaks are chocolate chip cookies.    Who knew??

Nice COH. Watch for Zombie Outbreaks!

We had a nice winter Court of Honor tonight with rank advancements and Merit Badges awarded. 

Watch out for a Zombie Outbreak this weekend camping at the Ski Cabin in Tunxis Forest.     Remember your food assignments and keep an eye out for an email with more details.    You can still join us!

The Zombie Apocalypse may be upon us!

We have the "Ski Cabin" in Tunxis State Forest in East Hartland reserved for 1/20 - 1/22.    Hope you can join us for Camping!     We'll send out more details and a signup soon.

The Frozen Feet Challenge continues with team Walkie Talkies doing a great job.   Keep it up!    Anyone working on rank or Merit Badge fitness requirements, remember to keep at it, and keep track!
