While waiting for our ride home, the Scouts in Troop 100 have fun playing a game.
Recently, Troop 100 attended the Fall 2012 District Camporee. We spent the weekend in Watkins Park, Largo, Maryland, where we enjoyed friendly competition with a dozen other troops from the area. The challenges covered problem solving, teamwork, and scouting skills such as first aid and fire building. In the end, two of our patrols took home second and third place- impressive, especially given the number of new scouts in the troop.
Last summer, scouts from Troop 100 visited Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimmaron, New Mexico. Philmont is the largest summer camp in the world, with 23000 participants each year and over 214 square miles of land in the Sangre de Christo Mountains. The troop sent 3 different crews of 7-8 people, each following a separate itinerary through the backcountry. Everyone had a great time, and returned with new camping, navigating, and leadership skills.
Troop 100's trip to Lesotho was featured in the Northwest Current recently. The article talks about the troop's activities while in Africa, and also mentions plans to bring several scouts from Lesotho to scout camp this coming summer.
