MOBRIDGE, S.D. – (DRG NEWS) Mobridge Boy Scouts and leaders are at Lewis and Clark Scout Reservation this week. Troop 65 chartered to the Mobridge Rotary Club sent eleven Scouts and three leaders to the 400 acre Sioux Council property in the Missouri River brakes on the north shore of Lewis and Clark Reservoir fifteen miles west of Yankton in southeast South Dakota.
The Scouts, working as three patrols under the leadership of Senior Patrol Leader Tyler Larsen and Scoutmaster Mike Jerome will camp in tents and use the facility to put into practice the leadership and outdoor skills they’ve been learning at troop meetings. They’ll also work on achieving merit badges in specific skills of swimming, canoeing, life saving, pioneering, rifle shooting, and aviation. First year Scouts will also complete requirements for Tenderfoot and Second Class ranks including: planning and preparing meals in camp the first four days and nights, orienteering and mapping, environment considerations and conservation practices. These skills will be put to use during a five mile hike on the property to conclude the week.
