Summer Camp 2016
This summer, we attended Camp Long Lake July 10-16, 2016, camping at Trail View. Twenty-Two Scouts attended camp, completing many Project First Class requirements, and 29 merit badges. Mr. Goldner was the Scoutmaster for the week, and Mr. Fisher, Mr. Uhan and Josh Fisher were also there for the entire week. Mr. Pomeroy, Mr. Koenig and Nick Buban also came for part of the week. Mr. Ryan was Camp Commissioner for the week.
Tuesday was OA Callout, and starting Tuesday evening thru Wednesday afternoon, Garrett Pomeroy, Mr. Goldner, and Gabe Wells performed their Ordeal to become OA members. On Wednesday afternoon, Zach Fisher, Steven Fricano and Teagan Uhan sealed their membership in the OA and became Brotherhood members. Congratulations to All the new Arrowmen and Brotherhood members. Troops 49 and 53 joined forces to staff the shooting sports area with Range Officers and Instructors to conduct our own "Troop Shoot". Then Troop 53 held a Flag Retirement Ceremony at our Thursday night Troop campfire again along with Troop 49. The Friday night closing campfire program was emceed by our own Alex and Ben. Congratulations to all.
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.
