On August 23rd, Troop 75 undertook something completely different... a kayaking trip and overnight campout.  We kayaked the Peconic River and camped at Indian Island Campground.  After we set up at camp we hit the river.  It was a small group but we were very eager.  Although some scouts had never kayaked before, they quickly got the hang of it.  It was a beautiful day and not too hot.  At midday, we beached the kayaks on an island in the middle of the river in order to have our lunch.  After a short break we were back in the water.  We kayaked all the way out into the bay before heading back.  After our day on the river was done, we settled into our campsite.  Before turning in for the night we took a night hike which seemed very adventurous.  We ended the night by toasting marshmallows on the fire.  The next morning we packed up, loaded into the cars and drove home. Everyone agreed that it was a great trip and a fun way to get together.
