Troop 66 has been active over the past few months. We went canoeing on the Farmington River and camping at Camp Workcoeman. On the canoeing campout we camped at Sunrise Park on Friday, June 4. On Saturday morning we traveled to the Farmington River to go canoeing. We canoed 10 miles and ate lunch halfway through the trip. When we canoe, we put two swim-test-approved scouts in each canoe. The scouts that did not pass the BSA swim test must be in a canoe with an adult for safety. Later in the afternoon we attended Pack 266’s annual crossover ceremony.
Everyone had a great time on the canoe campout. At our Camp Workcoeman campout we went fishing and visited the rifle range. Several scouts worked on their fishing merit badge during the campout. These scouts caught a fish, cooked it, and ate it for their merit badge. Other scouts earned requirements for their rifle and shotgun merit badges. This campout was very fun. Our next event is summer camp at Camp Mattatuck in Plymouth, Conn., at the end of July. We are also planning many events for the future.
