The 2021 Sunapee District Spring Camporee took places at Camp Unity. Scouts earned the Pioneering Merit Badge, which involves learning how to lash staves together. An impressive “Monkey Bridge” was built by Scouts and leaders and each troop designed and lashed together their own project. There was also an “Archimedes bridge” built, which is a self-supporting bridge with no bolts or other fasteners.
The 2021 Sunapee Klondike was held at the Cornish Fairgrounds on Feburary 6th. Forty-seven Scouts attended. All participants wore masks and practiced Covid-safe protocols. Events included: fire-building, knot-tying, first aid, ice rescue (simulated on a shallow frozen ice rink), winter shelters, and cryptography! Three Troops ended up tying for first place. Congrats to all who participated, and thanks to all who helped make it happen.
