Scouts from Troop 35 biked more than 25 miles round-trip to enjoy fall camping at Pratt’s Wayne Woods Forest Preserve. They had fun chopping wood, playing badminton, and appreciating the mild autumn air.

Troop 35 learns about aviation at AirCamp 2018

Troop 35 joined thousands of other scouts in a jamboree-style camping weekend filled with aviation-themed activities at AirCamp 2018. Scouts camped at the Chicago Rockford International Airport, where some even took flight. Pilots from the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) took scouts in their small aircraft and taught them the basics of flying. Take a look at some of the photos from the weekend, including mountain biking, GaGa ball, archery, and some football fun:

September 2018 – Update

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 bsa.wheatontroop35@gmail.com. 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.
