Troop 219 Survived the Pine Barrens!

Posted on Oct 1 2013 - 9:14am

What a trip this one was!  Scouts canoed and hiked from Atsion to Batsto along the Mullica River with a campout at a wilderness campsite.  The weather was perfect and except for a few scouts winding up in the river fully clothed, it was a successful outing.  Two scouts completed their Wilderness Survival Merit Badges by sleeping in shelters they made out of natural materials they found in the woods.  Nobody turned on their electronics which kept the Jersey Devil away, so we were all safe.
