It is almost time for the 13th annual Spring Aquatics Camporee. It is a very special event this year as the leadership of Troop 1 has assumed responsibility for running the event.
This is a great opportunity for Troop1 scouts to participate in a district wide scouting event even if they have already earned the Merit Badges being offered, and also a good time to complete First Class Cooking Requirements. First year scouts and any others not having the swimming merit badge will earn that badge. Scouts who have completed the swimming merit badge are encouraged to complete the Eagle-required lifesaving merit badge.
Troop 1 scouts will be responsible for their own food and also need to bring a mess kit and utensils for eating and cooking. The troop will have the scout trailer and provide grills and stoves for cooking.
