Klondike Derby 2020!

Klondike Derby 2020 was…. wet.  Very, very wet.

The Scouts braved about 10000 inches of rain to pull their sleds all over Pine Hill Scout Reservation, putting their skills to the test as they competed against patrols from all over Camden County.

The Scouts built fires, built shelters, did first aid, took park in teamwork challenges, and more.

In the end, everyone learned a lot and didn’t float away.

Falcon Patrol also took 2nd Place, good job guys!

Happy Birthday to us!

 

Well, another year in the Scouting book as we turn 55 years old!  Thanks to everyone for a great year!

Our Court of Honor recognized each Scout for their achievements, as well as what Troop 48 has done this year.

After recognizing the Scouts, our annual awards were given out.  Well to done Logan for being awarded our Memorial Award this year.

We then finished out with taking a look back at some memories from this year.

Thanks everyone for a great year!

Poconos Trip!

What an adventure we had up in the Poconos.  We hiked 2.4 miles to Pulpit Rock for an amazing view of the Pocono Mountains, visited Roadside America and one of the world’s great model train displays, and finished at Cabelas.  Our last camp out of the year!

Summer Trip Announced…

Patrol Leader Council made the big decision tonight… this summer we’re heading to Vermont! They still have to plan the details, but looking to do a high ropes/zipline course, hike in the Green Mountains, go canoeing, explore Burlington (including visiting Ben & Jerrys Factory), visit Ausible Chasm, and moo at cows.

Lake Champlain, here we come! This trip is NOT to be missed.
