In February we took a trip up to Camp Mack (J Edward Mack Scout Reservation) of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council and stayed a weekend in their cabin. We kept a woodstove roaring and cooked just outside. We also had an adventure taking a hike up above Fort Indiantown Gap where the Troop got a close look at a Vietnam Huey and experienced a sudden winter snow squall. Checkout the slideshow.
We thank members of the community who attended our October Open House. Even with some VERY rough weather, we had some parents and kids turnout for pumpkin carving and cider (courtesy of Glen Willow Orchards). This spooky theme will be an annual event, and we welcome local Packs to join us.
