The Scouts at Camp Manatoc have been working very hard this week on all of their individual merit badges and advancements. The first year scouts are doing their five-mile hike today as part of their First Class requirements. Ryan Canan and Quinn Michalec spent the morning working with the blacksmith and finished the metal working merit badge. Adam Bugajski, Marcus Bender, Logan Bender, Steven Cook, Tyler Broske and Chris Kuhn are doing well with their swimming merit badge. The Scputs are also having a good time at the dining hall where they have all their meals and sing fun new songs.
The Scouts welcomed their families to camp last night. We had 30 people stay for diner and many stories from the kids and lots of laughing. Laura Grubb, Kim Kuhn along with their assistant Chris Kuhn put together a nice banquet for the kids. The Scouts also showed off their marching skills during the retreat ceremony in honor of H. Karl Butler who secured all the land for the Manatoc reservation in the 1930'\s. This has insured that the Scouts will always have a premier Scout camp in the Akron area for many years to come. Troop 304 Assistant Scoutmaster has hosted the great corn hole tournament once again and Troop 304's Steven Sieverding is 28-1 for the week. He is so awesome at that game.
Troop 304 hosted their annual talent show "What would u do for a Klondike bar.". The kids told jokes or did some kind of stupid human tricks. All the adults in camp were judges and some of the acts made the judges cry they were laughing so hard. When it was all said and done Quinn Michalec of Troop 81was declared the grand champ for 2011 with the face high five trick.
