Good job Troop 66!"

Mr. Thompson

January Campout - Hoover

Greetings from Troop 66,

I wanted to say a few words about the campout at Hoover and include the pictures. We had a great time in spite of some equipment issues. We stayed in a new cabin at Hoover then we have stayed in before. It didn't have the individual rooms, but was still quite nice.

Saturday climbing was fun! 12 out of 14 Scouts earned the Climbing Merit Badge and the 2 who didn't are very close with partials. The younger Scouts had a good time climbing as you can see from the pictures.

Saturday evening was a fun-filled game night with a VERY interesting game of APPLES TO APPLES.

My thanks to all the adults who helped on the campout: Mr. Taubman, Mr. Knupp, Mr. Bergholz, and Mr. McQuade.

Mr. C
