Outdoor open house

Experience a Troop 5 outdoor meeting from 6:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Nov. 2 at Camp Allen on Back River Road (behind GPS soccer fields). Webelos get to know the troop and learn scout skills around a campfire, while parents have a session with the leaders to understand Troop 5’s boy-led approach, activities and rank advancement and to ask questions. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served.

Cooking Skills

Held Nov. 13-14 at Hidden Valley Scout Camp, Griswold Scout Reservation, in Gilmanton. Prospective scouts arrive on Saturday morning and the Troop 5 scouts take them on a hiking tour of the camp and then make a spectacular camp dinner. There is an evening Capture the Flag game and an awesome campfire. The prospective scouts sleep in a heated cabin in the campsite and have a good breakfast, more fun on Sunday morning and then we break camp. All boys must have a responsible adult on the trip with them.
