Scouts learn fire-making skills

Troop 35 turned a lesson of fire safety into something like an episode of CBS-TV’s “Survivor.” A friendly competition of which patrol could create a fire big enough to burn through a string made learning hands-on and fun.

Who do you think would be the winner? Older scouts? Scouts who’ve built countless fires on campouts over the years? Well… you’d be wrong! A group of Flaming Arrows, the youngest patrol, earned the bragging rights.
