New Scouts in Troop 51

Scout Troop 51 in Pickens recently welcomed five new Scouts who crossed over from Webelos. The new Scouts are, front row, from right: Payden Weiss, Noah Elgin, Cayden Rutledge, Eric Parker and Jayson Herring and the rest of the troop. They have already endured one of the troop’s “favorite” outings — camping in the rain. So far this year, Troop 51 has several camping trips, a backpacking trip on the Chattooga River and service projects. For the remainder of the year, the troop will be going to summer camp, a canoe/camping trip on the Edisto River, kayaking on Lake Keowee, camping with other Scout troops at Kings Mountain and camping in North Carolina.
