Getting out in nature

Troop 70720 went on a backpacking trip in September 2019. This trip was 3.6 miles each way. The girls carried all their own gear. They set up their tents, built the fires, and helped prepare their own meals.

They spent some time wading in the stream and exploring. It was a great bonding weekend and a great experience out in nature.

For two of the girls this was their first time backpacking. Next year, more girls are wanting to go.

These girls are all rock stars!
