Paddling their own canoe

Senior scouts from troop 267 BSA recently completed a trip to Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario Canada. The seven-day excursion took the scouts through pristine waters of the park’s several lakes.

The boys were required to use their canoeing and camp making skills throughout the journey. Some notable skills practiced were water purification, portage techniques, environmental conservation, and swimming.

Troop 267 is based in Fredonia and is sponsored by The American Legion Post 59. Meetings are held at the post, located at 156 East Main Street, Fredonia, every Monday at 7 p.m. during the school year. Any boy age 11 to 18 or who has completed the 5th grade is welcome to visit a troop meeting. Additional information is found at www.beascout.org. or www.bsa.org. Troop 267 can also be found through Facebook or common internet search engines.

The next event scheduled for the troop is their end of summer picnic. Those interested in joining the troop are welcome to see the fun in scouting at the picnic. Visitors can obtain event information and dates on the 267 Facebook page.
