Photos: 45 miles of Boy Scouting adventure

By on June 20, 2013

Elburn Troop 7 spent three days canoeing and camping on the Flambeau River in northern
Wisconsin in early June. The Scouts began thier journey at Nine-Mile Tavern in Park Falls, Wis., and covered 45 miles of water, including class 2 and 3 rapids. Working on their Canoe Merit Badge, cooking some delicious outdoor meals, hanging “bear” bags, the excitement of capsizing canoes, playing some cards and sitting around the bonfire laughing with fellow Scouts made the bugs a small price to pay for a great weekend. Alec Pope (above, from left), Jake Linden, Jacob Sheehan, Jake Needham, Joshua May, Henry Nosek and Grant Wilk have a little fun at the campsite after a long day canoeing.
After making it through some rapids, Sheehan (above) bails out his canoe with Pope. Snack time on the river for Scouts Wilk (below, from left), Pope, Linden and Sheehan.
