Zenith 2015 - Wanocksett Scout Camp, October 3 and 4

Posted by jgunther on Oct 6 2015 - 3:12pm

The crew attended Zenith, an annual gathering of venture crews, last weekend. In the morning training was offered and in the afternoon, scouts and adults got to try archery, rifle shooting, basketball and mountain boarding.  Mountain boarding is a new sport that uses something akin to a skateboard that has big wheels and a hand brake to zip down hills.  You can see various attempts by the scouts to hit the ramp and avoid hitting the ramp on our flicker site at

It was great to meet scouts from other crews and compare notes for fun adventures.
