High Adventure 2022

Posted by jditomasso on Jul 31 2022 - 11:59am

8 scouts and 2 adults enjoyed canoeing down the Allagash for Maine High adventure, all of whom enjoyed a two night stay at Camp Krause (many thanks to the Krause family). The scouts braved the white water rapids of the Penobscot River with the assistance of an experienced guide, during which 4 scouts unintentionally went swimming in the rapids. Knees were bumped and water was inhaled, but a good time was had by all.

Next the scouts spent 5 days canoeing from lake Umsaskis to Allagash village, with the help of their guide Jessie. With many early mornings, evening swims, one dog lost and found as well as a Bob. Some rump bumping in fashionable diapers and too many bug bites to count later, they all returned in one piece (mostly). They were welcomed back to base camp by a traditional bean hole dinner dating back to the camps ancient logging days and much needed showers. Lots of fun, reflection, and learning was had by all on this high adventure.

Camp Yawgoog 2022

Posted by bvincelette on Jul 13 2022 - 4:21pm

It was great to get back to camp Yawgoog for another week of scouting adventure. 20 Scouts and a handful of adults were lead by our SPL(Brady) and our ASPLs(Dylan and James). They had great weather and lots of fun memories as they earned 88 merit badges during week #2. It was monster week.

Although a recount was requested(we had the points and a Cookie Monster cake that went Rogue) we came in second for our bake-off with the help of Mrs. Pagliughi, a secret family frosting recipe and a number of energetic scouts. A couple of other second place finishes were recorded for Troop tournament and Scoutmaster challenge. A third place finish at the water carnival went down to the wire as well. All in all a great week with an overnight trip across the pond, 3 scouts enjoying the inaugural ATV course, an exciting Saturday night show, all while the troop received "Honor troop" recognition.
