Leo Dittenhoffer receives his Eagle

Posted by bvincelette on Jun 3 2024 - 11:53am

Troop 156 celebrates as Leo Dittenhoffer has his Eagle ceremony. Leo, now a Senior at UCONN, was disrupted by Covid and finally was

able to celebrate with the troop during our May court of honor at the JB Williams pavilion. Leo had over 11 years in his scouting career with many

camping trips, including the AT hike, Mt. Monadnock, Deer lake, Urban hikes in Boston and NY city, as well as many weeks at Camp Yawgoog during

the summers. Leo worked with the Audubon society to construct a composting system for his Eagle project. Congratulations Leo!

Troop 156 Canoes the Farmington River

Posted by bvincelette on May 20 2024 - 12:04pm

8 scouts and 4 adults navigated the Farmington River with only a few scouts entering the water. :)

Scouts learned why food storage and camp cleanliness is important as a black bear was seen near

their American Legion Forest campsite. Lots of fun, stories and memories to share.



Camp Neipsic - Spring 2024

Posted by bvincelette on Apr 29 2024 - 10:05am

Troop 156 enjoyed beautiful weather in Glastonbury as they camped at Camp Neipsic. The scouts used their orienteering skills to navigate a 5 mile course

through JB Williams Park and returned to build an impressive Monkey Bridge. The Monkey bridge tested their knot tying and lashing skills, which turned out

to be one of the best built bridges in recent memory. Dinner brought out the scouting chef as they competed using two special ingredients, while others practiced

their dutch oven and foil meal cooking skills. Finally, the evening ended with skits, songs and a story filled campfire program, along with a flag retirement ceremony.
