Halgas Scout Reservation campout!

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.

Lines on the Pines!

On March 10th, Troop 48 and Pack 48 came to the 14th Annual Lines on the Pines held at Stockton University, which showcases the wonders of New Jersey’s pine barrens.  They worked with the kids, teaching them about backpacking, camping, outdoor cooking, and knots.

Thanks to Magnus, Brian, Logan, and Charlie for helping out with this annual event!
