Congrats to Magnus for wrapping up his Eagle Project! He led a team to build and put up about three dozen birdhouses in New Brooklyn Park. Thank you to all of the Scouts and adults who helped out!
Congrats to Magnus for getting to head to the Union League in Philadelphia to receive the Union League Good Citizenship Award!
Well, we didn’t manage 50 miles, but we still had a nice adventure on the Appalachian Trail over Spring Break! 3 days, put in a bit over 20 miles!
April’s trip was to Gettysburg! We went on a hike, explored Devil’s Den, and had a great time!
Welcome to our newest Scout, Teddy! He crossed over tonight from Pack 184.
Swim night at the old Coliseum in Voorhees! Swim tests, water rescues, and Swimming Merit Badge!
Back in April, we took a night hike at Black Run Preserve. We ended up watching two beavers swim around for a while, good meeting!
In March, Troop 48 headed out into the pygmy pines to Halgas Scout Reservation! No toilets, no water pump, no fire ring, just a big area of scrub pines out in the middle of no where.
Our four patrols went head-to-head to see who could best survive the weekend!
They lashed together camp gadgets to make their stay more comfortable.
They built shelters to stay out of the elements.
And they enjoyed a beautiful weekend in the wilderness of South Jersey.
On the way home, we stopped at the nearby Brickbrae terrarra cotta factory, which has been abandoned for over 100 years. The Scouts had a good time exploring the ruins.
To practice for our upcoming Wilderness Survival campout, the patrols practiced their fire cooking skills. We also had the Webelos of Pack of Williamstown visit us!
Welcome to Jonathan and Austin, who crossed over from Pack 48 the past week!
