Boy Scouts Hold Fall Camporee 

Hundreds of boy scouts will be better prepared for emergencies after this weekend.Franfort Troop 34 and Searsport Troop 215 are hosting a Fall camporee.And the theme is emergency preparedness and first aid.Local firefighters were on hand giving fire safety lessons.There was even a session on how to cook out in the woods.All the boy scouts will be camping out and will build their own bonfire tonight.David Alling, Vice Chairman of the Waldo Scout District says it’s just as fun for the troop leaders as it is for the boys.” This camporee is allowing the scouts to earn credits and various merit badges, emergency merit badges and first aid merit badges. Plus they have a lot of fun.”” I really liked the CPR section of the first aid.”The scouts hold camporees like this twice a year and each time a different Scout District hosts it.
