The troop went on a cooking outing at Camp Pellissippi on the weekend of April 8-10. We stayed in the Winter Lodge which had electricty and a fireplace. The purpose of this outing was to complete as many cooking requirements as possible for the cooking merit badge as well as for rank advancement (Tenderfoot requirements 1,2,3; Second Class requirements 3c-3f, 6; First Class requirements 4a-4d, 6). The scouts also completed the Signaling merit badge while they were not cooking. In the evening we held a flag retirement ceremony. We met at Kern UMC at 6:00PM on Friday and got back to the church arounbd 9:30AM on Sunday morning. The cost for this outing was $20.
