Troop 35 has been busy. Busy helping scouts develop leadership skills and having fun. Follow us on Instagram @WheatonTroop35.
In August the troop went to Van Buren Dunes State Park in Michigan, that is a Michigan State Park and it was a great time.
In early July, the troop sent a crew to Sea Base in the Florida Keys where several scouts and adult leaders sailed the ocean blue.
And in late June the troop attended summer camp at Camp Tesomas near Rhinelander, Wisconsin. The scouts had a blast.
It’s early September and the scouts are back in school and it’s wreath sales time. Scouts will be busy through October 16th selling wreaths in their neighborhoods and within their families. Many older scouts have built up a sales contact list and are checking their lists and making contact with their clients. It’s impressive what they can do. Keep an eye out for Troop 35 scouts in your neighborhood.
If you’d like a scout to contact you – send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your e-mail leave a phone number and your address. Your contact information will be passed on to Troop 35 scout.
Above are some photos from troop activities in the late winter and spring of 2018. 2018 has been a great year to be a scout, especially in Wheaton Troop 35.
Friday got an early, cold, wet start, as Troop 35 challenged the Tesomas staff to Chilly Willy. For those not familiar, Chilly Willy is an underwater rugby-type game, where a giant ice cube is used as the ball. It is played first thing in the morning, so the water and air are also pretty chilly! It is played against the camp staff when a challenge is issued by a troop. We teamed up with Troop 34 this year. After an early lead by our scouts, the staff won the day.
Our troop also raised the camp flag today.
Here are a few other pictures from Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
The Flaming Arrows (first year scouts) practiced more lifesaving at the waterfront today.
