We have scheduled Troop 850’s annual Dutch Oven Campout for the weekend of February 6-8 near Hamilton, Ohio. This will be a joint campout with Troop 654 of the Izaak Walton League and they will be hosting our Troop on their property north of Hamilton (450 Bessinger Road, about a 40 minute drive).
The Scouts will compete with the patrols of both Troops by preparing a 3-course meal in Dutch Ovens for themselves and the judges. The winning patrol will have their names engraved on the plaque in our display case. The Scouts will complete an orienteering course early Saturday and that night they’ll enjoy a movie and popcorn. Plus, we will be sleeping indoors!
Families of Troop 850 Scouts are encouraged to visit on Saturday and join us for dinner. Please list family members on the permission slip and turn in by January 27th. The fee is $30 for each Scout and adult for the weekend. There is no charge for family members coming on Saturday.
