August Beach Camping - Historian’s Report
In August, we all came to Beach Camping at Cape Henlopen with our families. As the troop custom for Beach Camping, there was a bike ride that had a fishing dock as one of its destinations. True to the name of the camping trip, the troop went to the beach, where the waves were high. The 2014 Family Beach Camping was a camping trip to truly remember. –Matthew L., Troop 2, Official Historian
