Troop 1513 held their annual, voluntary camp to test a Scout’s ability to persevere with very little resources. Scouts will have a strong knowledge of shelter building, fire building, and knot tying. This is an excellent time when Scouts form close bonds, make lasting memories, encourage teamwork, and build self confidence within each Scout.
