WINTER CAMPING TRIP
See message below from Mr. Mulvaney and don’t forget to sign up for the winter camping trip, please sign up if you have not already done so!
So it must be time for Troop 131 to do some Cold Weather Camping!!!! That’s right baby, the colder the better. There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. So gear up and join us!
We will be camping 25-27 Feb at Marsden Tract (https://www.recreation.gov/
The Marsden Tract Group Campground was built by scouts to provide access to larger campsites within easy commuting distance of the D.C. Metro area. It is located at Mile 11.5 on the C&O Canal Towpath, between the Carderock Recreation Area and Anglers Inn. The group campsites are nestled in the woods between the Canal and the Potomac River and they are a short distance from many recreational opportunities.
Scouts will do some hiking, camp fire building, and other activities. It will be cold, but it will be fun!
So Sign Up Now and come enjoy the cold:
