Our January camp activity will focus on Appalachia history, blacksmithing and beautiful Lake Norris in Tennessee. We will be cabin camping at Boy Scout Camp Pellissippi located on Lake Norris in Andersonville TN. The camp will be the weekend of Friday 1/19 to Sunday 1/21. We will begin collecting camp fees and permission slips at our 12/18/17 troop meeting.
Saturday morning after breakfast we will drive to the Museum of Appalachia and tour through their historic buildings and be entertained by their historians in period dress. We will eat a sack lunch at the museum and after lunch travel to the WG Lenoir Museum and Norris Dam Visitor Center to lean more about the local area history and construction of lake Norris. We will head back in time to cook dinner and enjoy the balance of our evening at camp.
Weather permitting, and Merit Badge Challenge scheduling aside hold this long weekend in February for some winter fun in Michigan.
