BSA Troop 2810 enjoys summer camp

BSA Scout Troop 2810, chartered out of Salem Lutheran Church in Sycamore, traveled to Canyon Camp in Stockton for summer camp in July. Eighteen Scouts and several adult leaders enjoyed a week of merit badge work, rank advancement and camaraderie and were especially pleased to be there after a year off due to the pandemic. The troop competed in the Camp-Wide Games in which they earned first place overall, with firsts in the swim relay, rock climbing, the rope toss and knot-tying. Other highlights were ax throwing, kayaking, swimming, ziplining, the flag ceremonies, playing human foosball and the new metalworking merit badge program. The scouts were honored by being chosen to receive the Gilwell Staff, which is given yearly to the troop that best exemplifies the Scout Law and shows the most Scout Spirit.
