PAST EVENTS

 

Camp Johnson Campout

(January 17th - January 19th)

 

This January we will be camping at Camp Johnson in Bolton, CT.  We will be meeting Friday night, January 17th at the Church at 5:30 pm and then head directly to Camp Johnson.  The cost of trip will be 10 dollars.

 

Please be sure to have eaten dinner before arriving at the church.   Once we arrive at Camp Johnson, we will set up camp and our tents.  When everyone is all set up, we will go up to the cabin, get a fire going.

 

The trip will be Patrol Cooking.   Each Patrol will have to prepare Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday breakfast.  The cooking merit badge is now an Eagle requirement and if you need cooking to advance at any other rank please let me know.  This trip is a great opportunity to complete other advancement requirements.

 

Saturday morning after breakfast, we will do a hike along the Rail Trail.  We will return to camp and have lunch.  The balance of the afternoon, will concentrate on advancement and skills.

 

This is winter camping and you need to be well prepared.  If you do not have a zero-degree bag or better; you will need to place one sleeping bag inside another for the extra warmth.  You may want to do this even if you have a zero-degree bag.   Itís also important to dress for the January weather.  Warm gloves, hat, and layers of clothes to keep you warm.  Good insulated winter boots are a must if you are to stay warm and remember to pack an extra pair wool sock.  Fleece and polyester clothes are superior to cotton and denim and will provide a lot more warmth and wick sweat away from your body.
