22 scouts and 9 fathers attended Discovery Camp this year. Discovery camp is the first opportunity for our new scouts to camp with the troop and learn some of the basics of camping and cooking using the patrol method. The weather Friday was cold, cloudy and windy. The average temperature of 36 degrees was about 13 degrees below the normal for this time of year. Snow started about noon on Saturday and continued several hours past sunset. Total snowfall measured between 4 and 5 inches. Besides the regular meals prepared by each patrol, Mr. Hoffmann and Mr. DiMercurio prepared fried catfish, hushpuppies and French fries on Friday night for all to share. Mr. Sandroni baked a Dutch oven apple dump cake Saturday night for all to share. It was all delicious. (Click on read more below for more photos and text.)
