Scouts New and Old go to Camp Bowman

A strong faction of Scouts journeyed to Camp Bowman, a part of Goshen Scout Reservation for a great week of camping, ghost stories, learning and fun. The troop got to experience the Independence Day fireworks and festivities. The lot got up early for a Pirates Breakfast on Lake Merriweather with other troops from across D.C. Everyone earned many merit badges and learned a lot.

Thank you for your support!

Thanks to all who supported our Fish Fry fundraiser.  Here are some pictures from our trip to Maine last summer.  This summer, we will backpack in western Virginia, and in 2018 we will ride horseback in rural New Mexico.  Funds from the Fish Fry support those big trips and year-round camping, leadership and character development.
