WINTER CAMPING AT CAMP HINDS
2 of our troop members, Brad Putnam and Don Moody went to Camp Hinds over winter school break. They built igloos and slept in them. They also came home with 3 merit badges each. Some that they earned were Electricity, Snow Sports, Computers and Sculpture. Ask them about the fun activities they did.
