Shooting Sports at Camp Horne

In February of 2022, Troop 100 B went to Camp Horne to do Shooting Sports. After unpacking everything the adults and the scouts each made a campfire and talked until it was time for bed. The next morning each patrol made an elaborate breakfast, and then went to the shooting range to have some fun.

Once we arrived the instructor taught us how to safely use rifles. We shot rifles until it was time to fix lunch. After we fixed a quick lunch of ham sandwiches the younger scouts did archery while the older scouts shot pistols.

A few hours later we hiked back down to the campsite where we made supper and roasted marshmallows over a campfire and then went to sleep. The next morning we made breakfast then hiked five miles on a trail through the woods. Once we got back we packed up and left.

DeSoto Day Trip

On January 22, 2022, Troop 100 B took a day trip to DeSoto State Park. When we arrived we had youth leadership training at a pavilion.

Then each patrol cooked their own lunch. After eating, we packed up the cooking gear and drove over to the waterfall and hung out for a while.

After that we went to True Adventure Sports and did the Practical Ingenuity Class. The owner taught us how to create a makeshift compass with some string and a nail. Then we learned how to cut a rope with some paracord.

He also demonstrated how to use a car and some jumper cables to make a welding machine. On our way home we stopped at Zaxby’s for supper.
