As in 2015, Troop 850 will join Troop 654 of the Izaak Walton League for our annual Dutch Oven Campout on February 5-6 near Hamilton, Ohio. Troop 654 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 will return to St Ignatius Saturday evening because of Scout Sunday the following day.
Families of Troop 850 Scouts are invited to visit on Saturday and join us for dinner. Please list family members on the permission slip and turn in by February 2nd. The fee is $25 for each Scout and Adult for the weekend. There is no charge for family members coming on Saturday.
