August 16th & 17th we had a “Wilderness Survival & Scouting Skills” weekend in Sugar Grove Virginia. Several scouts completed the last requirements needed for their Wilderness Survival Merit Badge. This included improvising a natural shelter and spending the night in it and building and lighting fires using three different methods other than matches. Congratulations to those scouts that completed these requirements.
We packed a lot into one weekend…Geocaching, Fishing, Fire Building, Improvising natural shelters, Leave no trace, Outdoor Cooking, & Plant Identification. We also worked on the fishing merit badge by each scout catching, cleaning, cooking, & eating their own fish.
