Gunpowder Falls Campout

(April 12-14, 2024)

Troop 680 last visited Gunpowder Falls in December 2022.  Needless to say it was a lot warmer this time and following a late night / early morning rain storm Friday into Saturday, the Troop had perfect weather for the rest ofthe weekend.   At the campout Scouts had an opportunity to work on requirements, go for a short hike to the Gunpowder River, or just chill out.  Many of the Scouts took advantage of the opportunities and completed Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class requirements as well as some requirements for Communications and Camping Merit Badge.  One Scout also completed a Scoutmaster conference.  Others just spent time whittling and  having fun.  The cooks did a great job keeping everyone fed, and Saturday evening concluded with a great campfire.  Additional photos are available on the restricted pages.
