June 2020 - First Online Camping Trip

Our June 2020 Camping Trip is Troop 497's first online camping trip, ever! The Covid-19 Pandemic continued to force us to cancel large group camping trips. So we encouraged everyone to camp in their yards. We held an online meeting on Saturday, 13 June at 5 PM to kick off the event and for everyone participating to meet and briefly chat. Scouts were encourage to cook dinner for the families or assist with the cooking. We met online again at 8 PM to get updates. Many people joined the meeting from their mobile devices inside their tents or around their fires. Mr. Murphy recited the the poem, The Cremation of Sam McGee. We met again briefly on Sunday morning and heard from many participants that they had a fun camping experience.
