On July 29th, Troop 75 went to Yawgoog Scout Reservation in Rhode Island.  There we worked on merit badges, earned awards and went on hikes.  Surprisingly, fishing was very popular with Troop 75 this year.  One of the scouts even caught an eel!  The food was excellent as always and our campers were kept well fed.  There were also problems in camp.  On the second day a scout unfortunately sliced open his finger and had to get stitches at the infirmary.  Several of our older scouts completed the Mile Swim.  We also had one scout compete in the Three Point Road Race.  The war canoes proved to be very popular.  There was a camp wide scavenger hunt and a costume contest keeping with the week's theme of pirates.  The troop undertook the Handicap Awareness Trail where a pair of scouts, one deaf one blind, had to traverse an obstacle course.  We also had some scouts go to religious services on Sunday, holding true to the 12th point of the Scout Law, "A Scout is Reverent".  Many thanks to all the adult leaders who gave up their time to make this such a great year for the boys.
