Troop 66 of West Suffield has been very active during this pandemic. During the pandemic, we have been holding virtual meetings. The scouts are also doing campouts virtually, where everyone camps in their own private backyards.

We talk and interact on a video call during our campouts. Each scout sets up his own tent, fire, and cooks his own food.

Also, many scouts have been working on various merit badges through virtual meetings over the last several weeks. Some of the merit badges include: First Aid, Citizenship in the Community, and the Camping merit badge. We are all thankful to have such a great troop and adult leadership during the pandemic.
