Boy Scout Troop 71 attends summer camp

Boy Scouts and adult leaders from Athens Troop 71 chartered by the First United Methodist Church attended summer camp at the Upper Hopewell campsite of Chief Logan Scout Reservation operated by the Simon Kenton Council BSA, near Ray, Ohio, from June 30-July 6. The program offered individualized and specialized areas covering handicraft, high adventure, nature, Scoutcrafts, shooting sports, STEM, and water sports. Six Scouts participated in the Foothills of the Frontier program for first-year campers, and the older youth experienced the Frontiersman Program, Order of the Arrow events, and merit badge work.
