Summer Camp at Bartle was a great time. We had almost perfect weather at first followed by a storm that destroyed the Kentucky Troop’s pop up tent, then the heat came. We had an great turn out and a lot of merit badges were earned.
We also learned about the legend of Loose Bullet who took on Kentucky Tim. Just ask one of the scouts who was at camp to hear the story that lives on at Bartle.
Here are some photos from camp. If you have more photos please contact Scott Valler to upload them to the troop photo site.
