“I like the camping trips that the whole Troop goes on because we do a lot of fun things like swimming, leather craft, and boating. There are also things like skit night, wrestling night, and swimming, boating, or canoeing across the lake to eat breakfast. I also like some of the meetings because sometimes we get to go sledding, or visit places like the police station or the fire station.”

“What I like best about Troop 25 is being able to make so many friends. Also I like the many skills that you learn. You also get to go to many places and see many sights. Another thing I like is going to New Hampshire for 2 weeks at Camp Kirkham. There are many activities like JA in the Lake and Capture the Flag.”

“I like summer camp. We get to spend 2 weeks doing adventurous activities. My favorite part was going out one night with my age group and taking the canoes to see the stars and constellations. One of our leaders showed us everything. We also saw some shooting stars. It was spectacular and fun.”
