Heflin BSA Troop 206 backpacked in the Cheaha Mountain area camping at a rock bridge built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in the 1930’s. Scouts completed environmental cleanup and conservation projects. Backpacking skills, lost hiker skills, and emergency preparedness exercises were activities of the weekend along with compass skills training and practice. The Troop’s next camping activity will be a weekend at Camp Sequoyah with boating and canoing, safety afloat training, and water rescue skills training and practice. It is getting into the season where the members of the Troop 206 are working on recruiting new scouts to earn the 2013 New Scout Recruiter Award. Any boys through the ages of 11 to 17 can be recruited. If you know of an eligible boy direct them to one of the many scouts in Troop 206 or have them attend the weekly meeting on Monday night at 7 p.m., in the basement of the American Legion Post 19 building on Ross Street.
