As troop historian I wanted to document how the troop adapted to living in a world with

COVID-19.


Campouts during COVID were very unusual. Before COVID in March we had a Capture

the Flag campout and all the scouts enjoyed that. When COVID hit, all of our campouts

were now in jeopardy. Scouts can’t go without camping, so the Scouting community of

Troop 350 created virtual campouts, where we had all of the scouts participate in some

theme and send pictures of them doing the campout. Some examples were

Hawaiin/tropical themed and a netflix “camp in” where scouts watched “Raiders of the

Lost Ark” virtually together. We had scouts cook meals in dutch ovens, set up

hammocks in between swing sets, and Mr Hauser set up his invisible tent. When the

restrictions were lifted somewhat, we had a canoeing campout and our annual Webelos

Campout.

While serving as the troop historian for 2020 I thought it would be interesting to

document the first ever virtual summer camp.


When Covid hit people were afraid of catching it, so Boy Scout Troops from around the

country (and a few out of the country) had the option to participate in a virtual summer

camp led by Camp La-No-Che in Central Florida. Troop 350 was one of the troops that

decided to participate. Despite it being on a computer they did an incredible job

simulating a regular summer camp. They still had the funny skits, songs, and jokes they

would perform at the opening and closing flag ceremonies. I got badges at home and

working on the cooking merit badge certainly was a treat to do from my house. The

negatives were that it was not as interactive being online and I missed hanging out with

my friends. And there were no stores to buy treats. At previous camps after finishing a

class, I would go buy myself a little something. Overall the staff and the community did

an awesome job making a summer camp for those who didn’t have one.
