We kicked off 2023 with a quick but amazing first campout up at Allatoona Aquatics Base. We arrived just after dark on Friday and quickly setup and turned in for a chilly first night. On Saturday we spent all morning down at the beach helping with the camp’s annual “Day of Fire” where we collected and burned excess driftwood and installed old Christmas Trees as fish habits. It was a lot of fun and a great way to give back to the camp. We finished off the day with a refresher on Totin Chit & Firem’n Chip duties before gathering around a warm fire for the evening. Sunday morning, we packed up, policed our campsite, and headed for home. Overall, the weekend may have been cold, but it was a fun, relaxed, enjoyable weekend for all and we’re already looking forward to our next outing.

Instead of our usual meeting this week, we opted to go Ice Skating at Avalon and have a White Elephant to get in the holiday spirit! It was a ton of fun and relaxing. Definitely looking forward to making this a new troop tradition.

We’ve held out first Lock-In at Escalade Climbing Gym and wow it was a ton of fun! Scouts got to learn how to repel, tie some knots for the Climbing Merit Badge, and climb to the point of exhaustion! With snacks, pizza, and a special birthday treat, everyone had lots of energy and the perfect way to burn it off. This was also our first joint event with Troop 2319-B and it was so so great to see so many different scouts having so much time. What a great overnight event to end the year with.
