Family Camp Trip - June 5-7, 2015
Four Mile Creek State Campground and Other Various Sites, Niagara Falls, NY

The troop's family camp trip this year was to Niagara Falls, NY.  This was similar to a trip we did several years ago.  Friday we hiked around Goat Island and Three Sisters' Islands.  We then went to the campground to set up camp and have dinner.  It wouldn't be a family camp without rain and we weren't disappointed as it rained while we set up camp.  After dinner we headed back to the falls for fireworks.  On Saturday we visited several sites including the Aquarium, the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center, the Niagara Adventure Theater, Cave of the Winds and the Maid of the Mist.  We all had a great time, except for the loud campers behind us both nights that was blasting music and yelling until 2:30 am both nights.  All in all it was a great trip.   Please enjoy the pictures below:

Grave Decoration of Veterans for Memorial Day - May 23, 2015
Ohio Western Reserve Veterans' Cemetery, Rittman, OH

The troop decorated the graves of Veterans at the Ohio Western Reserve Veterans' Cemetery in Rittman.  The boys honored those who served and risked their lives for the freedom of our country and learned the real meaning of Memorial Day.  We had about 10 scouts and 9 adults that showed up to help and it was a beautiful day to do this.  On our way back to the car we were thanked by family members of someone that was buried there, so it is appreciated by the families of those buried there.  Please enjoy the pictures below:

Camp Stigwandish Campout- April 24-26, 2015
Camp Stigwandish, Madison, OH

The troop went to Camp Stigwandish in Madison, Ohio for their April campout.  The weather was beautiful (maybe a little cold at night) and the camp is a great place to hike around.  The first years earned their Totin' Chip and Firem'n Chit as well as a lot of other Tenderfoot requirements during the weekend.  We also went on a hike and skipped rocks in the river that borders the camp and some of the boys fished in one of the lakes on the property.  The campsite was nice and secluded and had a nice pavilion.  We had awesome food this weekend as well, with Mountain Man Breakfast in dutch ovens for breakfast and smoked pork shoulder in Mr. Cingel's smoker.  All in all it was another fun weekend of camping.  Thanks to Mr. Burns and Mr. Skerl for the pictures.  Please enjoy the pictures below:

Visit to the Army Reserve Training Center - April 6, 2015

The troop had their April 6th meeting at the Army Reserve Training Center in Twinsburg.  The group got to look and sit inside various military vehicles and heard some stories about what it is like in Iraq and Afghanistan from someone who served over there.  In addition, the boys (and some adults) got to shoot real military guns, set up for a training simulator at the Center.  The boys had a great time.  Please enjoy the pictures below:

New Scout Campout-Warther Museum - March 20-22, 2015
Camp Tuscazoar, Dover, OH

The troop had their March campout at Tuscazoar in Dover, OH, south of Canton.  We had a small group this month due to other obligations, with 6 scouts going in total, including our 3 new scouts.  We were in a cabin at the back end of the property with a view of the very swollen Tuscarawas River.  On Saturday, we went on a hike to see the Dover Dam and started working with the new scouts on some of their scout skills and rank advancement.  On Saturday afternoon we went to visit the Warther Museum in Dover, which has lots of carvings by Mooney Warther, who carved from the age of 5 through 85.  All of his pieces were tremendous and some, like the train carved out of a single tusk of ivory and Lincoln's Funeral Train (carved when he was 80) were amazing.  Although the weather was not as warm as predicted we had no rain (or snow) and had really good weather for our hike and working outdoors with the scouts.  As usual we all ate very well too!   Please enjoy the pictures below:

Polar Bear Camp - February 21-22, 2015
Camp Butler, Peninsula, OH

The troop's annual Polar Bear Camp was held at Camp Butler again this year.  The boys and leaders built their own shelters to sleep in and cooked their meals over an open fire.  The weather was a little warmer than the previous weekend but still cold.  Oh and during the day on Saturday, Summit County, where the camp was at, had a snow emergency, so as you can see from the pictures they had a lot of snow.  The guys are all looking forward to getting their bear claws at the April Court of Honor.
