The recent onslaught of snowstorms provided the perfect setting for a winter camping weekend for Londonderry Twp.’s Boy Scout Troop 97.

The Scouts followed their tradition of camping in tents while a snowstorm laid a heavy blanket of snow around them. Toboggan rides and snowball fights were a popular favorite.

Pack 97 Webelo 2 Cub Scouts joined the troop for the campout, called the Klondike.

Among the skills that the Scouts learned at the campout were building a fire in the snow in less than 30 minutes – and with just two matches.
