Our annual winter cabin trip to Camp Snyder to do intensive merit badge work was this past weekend. The scouts worked on merit badges like Citizenship in the Community, Cooking, Emergency Preparedness, Personal Management, and Automotive Maintenance. During Wimp-O-Ree, the adults handle the cooking, so that the scouts can focus on advancing their merit badges.
Saturday evening the troop started their annual planning for the coming year. We encourage the the scouts to conduct their annual planning meeting during Wimp-O-Ree, because this is one of the better attended trips throughout the year. The evening was finished off with board games for those who didn’t conk out early. We even left Carroll’s Cottage the next morning cleaner than we found it!
