Grant Banner 2015

Grant Banner 2015

On the 22nd of April, Troop 32 made their annual trip to the U.S. Grant Pilgrimage 2016 – One Nation Indivisible in Galena, IL. Thousands of Scouts went to walk the town and explore many different scouting activities. There was a very realistic Civil War reenactment of a battle that took place in Galena. Saturday morning, Scouts had the opportunity to explore the many shops and food Galena had to offer. There were information hunts to participate in, where Scouts walked around town to talk to Civil War reenactors and gather information for a prize. In the afternoon, there was a Scout parade where Troop 32 lined up to march with all the other Troops down Main Street. In the evening, Scouts headed to Galena High School where they faced off against other Scouts in a dodge ball game. Canyon Camp in Stockton, IL is where Troop 32 set up camp, along with several other troops. The weekend was a great opportunity for the Scouts to learn, explore and interact with other troops as well as learn some history.
