Summer Camp 2010 at Camp Berry

posted Jul 30, 2010, 7:51 PM by Troop 121
  Eighteen boys from Troop 121 and seven boys from Troop 502 of Ashland attended summer camp at Black Swamp Council's Camp Berry during a flurry of wild winds, crazy downpours, and humid days.  But the boys being Scouts were used to surviving in such conditions and persevered greatly.  Over 109 merit badges were earned during the week at summer camp in Troop 121 alone.  Boys mentioned that some of the favorite activities included shooting off model rockets for Space Exploration, swimming, seeing skunks in the camp ground, and penny hockey every night.  The Baldasare boys, "The Godfathers," won the euchre title  this year, beating out the team that they lost to last year. Also, Troop 121 was the only troop to volunteer to post the colors at camp and they got to do it with a 30' x 50' American flag from the Cleveland Indians Progressive Field.  The boys and the Scouters should be proud of the accomplishments made at camp.  Who's ready for next year?
