SCOD 6, October 2007
We attended the Sixth SCOD (Stupendous Camporee Ojibwas District) on October 12 through 14. Five scouts from Troop 109 participated in the activities. It was a bit cold, but overall a nice campout. Mike earned the National Camping Award for camping 100 days and nights since joining Boy Scouts! The campout was held at Camp Kiwanis in Mason.
