Big News!

Polar Bear* Count Winter Season 2012-2013

When we were camping out at Fraser, COon January 12-13, 2013 we all received Polar Bear badges because the temperature was -23 degrees. This was a new low temperature record for the troop.

*A Polar Bear award requires camping outside and cooking a meal in sub-zero temperatures. It's one of the ultimate tests of camping fortitude and determination. Some of our boys have 6 or more and Tom Brown has done this more than 14 times.
