Scouts from Troop 12 recently camped at Camp Pomperaug in Union, CT during the first
weekend of November. The scouts followed all the current COVID rules set by the state and local council and were able to enjoy a beautiful tent camping weekend.
The Troop’s SPL (Senior Patrol Leader), Ben Cap, along with the leaders, helped plan and organize the weekend’s activities. The plan was to work with the newer Boy Scouts on outdoor, nature, and fire building skills.
During the camping trip, scouts Tim Cap and Frankie Cavallaro were the two assigned cooks, cooking for the 15 scouts and leaders in attendance. Both scouts were working towards their cooking merit badge requirements.
Scouts explored the camp and ventured on hiking trails to view the entire camp and the
surrounding lake and small islands.
Boy Scout Troop 12, chartered by the VFW Post 7788, meets at the St. Agnes Church hall every Thursday. Scouts currently belonging to the troop are from Milford and Orange.
