Medieval Campout [October 2015] The troops newest campout has once again occurred. The Medieval Campout is undoubtedly one of the most popular trips the troop has ever had. This year the trip took place at Harpers Ferry, MD where we had large amounts of room to fight. To any of those unfamiliar with The Medieval Campout the whole premise of the campout surrounds around the troop fighting each other with foam weapons, and competing in a variety of game types. After all the fighting was done it was obvious, the campout was a huge success.
Fishing Trip [September 2015] Back by popular demand the troop selected to go back to Virginia beach for another round of fishing. Out of the few fishing trips the troop has had this was the most successful with the troop catching dozens of fish. The fish that were caught made for a great dinner that night. But the trip had more than just fishing while we weren’t fishing we had time relax at camp or go to the beach nearby. All in all I would call this years fishing trip a success.
