Good Evening from Resica Falls! As I sit here and type this email it is currently raining and has been for the last few hours. Im not one to get bummed by the rain, its a lovely sound to fall asleep to, but the thunder and lightning that came with this storm put a damper on the evening activities. Im not sure our scouts minded much, as a couple of them have been asleep for the last 2 hours. To say they had a long day is an understatement.
Hey Mike What Day Is It? Its Hump Day!!!! Yup, we are halfway through the week. Its amazing to think how fast time flies when you have to walk everywhere. When I say walk everywhere, I mean everywhere, thus far my watch has clocked us at around 33.5 miles since Sunday.
Good Evening from the slightly damp Troop 603 Camp site. I say damp because we had one heck of a rain storm this evening. Not to worry, we are all dry in our tents at this point, getting some much needed rest. This morning we all took part in the first of 4 polar bear swims. Now, I know Polar Bear swim brings to mind frigid waters, snow, ice etc. I assure you we had none of that this morning.
Greetings from Resica Falls Scout Reservation. So far things have gone pretty smooth. Like most first half days, the sunday was spent in a hurry up and wait mentality. Hurry up and get going in the morning, then wait for breakfast. Hurry Up and get up to camp, and wait for check in. Then hurry up and get ready for your swim test, then wait in line for the test. The swim tests went smooth, all the scouts (and even us old adults) passed.
Like many Scout Troops, Troop 603 has been on lock down since March 2020. During that time, there many virtual activities have been offered but they just arent the same. At this point summer has come and gone, and we are looking at the start of the new scout season and are excited by the prospect of things sort of getting back to normal. Below are some stories about what our scouts have been up to since the pandemic started. Dear Mr.
