August 2-9th, 2015 - Yawgoog Scout Reservation, Rhode Island:  We're looking forward to another great week at camp this summer! Last year we had an excellent week at camp. The boys were very active and productive earning 82 segments, 55 merit badges and 8 rank advancements including a pair of quadruple Bronze palms. We were again recognized as an honor troop at the end of camp.
