Boy Scout Troop 140’s Camping Trip Taught Water Safety and More

Boy Scout Troop 140 recently a trip to Camp Delmont in Montgomery County. The Scouts slept in tents next to the lake and prepared all of their own meals for the weekend. There was a little rain, but didn’t damper the fun. The Scouts ran a program that consisted of training time in water safety, training time with knife and axe safety, and canoeing.

During the afternoon, the Scouts had free time to enjoy the lake. Some took out canoes to race each other and some boys spent time catching fish from the shoreline. Seven or eight fish were reeled in.

Troop 140 camps on a monthly basis. This trip is one of many fun events that the boys participate in through the troop throughout the year to help them develop the skills to transition into civic minded young men that can have a positive impact on their community.

If you have a boy aged 11-17 that could benefit from a program like this, the troop would love to meet you. Troop 140 meets every Monday night in the basement of St. Marks Church at 5th and Harry. Feel free to stop on down, or call Scoutmaster Paul Himes at 610-291-5146 to arrange a tour or to get more information.
