Text Size

Scouts from Troop 870 of Newtown attended BSA’s Camp Sequassen, in New Hartford during their resident camp week three.

In addition to earning several merit badges, the Scouts of Troop 870 competed in the Land & Sea Games, participated in the early morning Polar Bear Swim, attended the All Faith Service, and hosted a Friendship Fire at their campsite.

The troop was recognized for demonstrating “superior Scout spirit,” and was ultimately awarded Honor Patrol at the camp’s closing ceremony.

Readers are invited to visit Troop 870 on Thursday, September 14, when they will host their first open house of the new season. The public is invited to join the Scouts and leaders from 7 to 8:30 that evening at Newtown Hook & Ladder firehouse, 12 Church Hill Road.

Learn about the troop’s fun, adventure, life skills, leadership, and service missions.

Welcoming girls ages 11-17, the troop meets weekly at the firehouse. Visit any Thursday, 7:00-8:30 pm, for one of the troop’s regular meetings at Newtown Hook and Ladder, 12 Church Hill Rd.
