Troop 53 has been a top competitor at Camp Long Lake for several years.  This year was no exception.  The Troop again brought home a ribbon: One for First Place in the Camp Wide Relay,  but lost a Third Place race-off at Aquafest.  Congratulations to our Scouts for working hard toward their achievements.
