In 2020 going to summer camp for Boy Scouts was not possible due to Covid, and 2021 summer camp guidelines in NYS were not well defined until late June causing concerns of another year without summer camp.

With our local council camp deciding not to open, Troop 35 leadership started the search in late May for a camp within a few hours radius that would work for the week we selected to go to camp. We found BSA Camp Mountain Run 3.5 hours away in central Pennsylvania in the Allegany Region of the state.

The scouts had a great experience at camp earning over a combined 50 merit badges, two scouts (brothers) Jackson & Mason Moreland both earned the mile swim award, and the troop competed in the volleyball tournament and won the championship by beating the staff in the final game.
