Galloway Patriot Brings Mud Run To Boy Scout Camporee 2016

Galloway Patriot Brings Mud Run To Boy Scout Camporee 2016

The Boy Scouts held their annual “Camporee” at the Egg Harbor City Lake on Saturday October 15th. Well over 500 Scouts enjoyed a weekend of camping and learning skills.

The Galloway Patriot was very pleased to bring its “Magnus Mud Run” to the Boy Scout event and let hundreds of Scouts run the obstacle/confidence course.

The morning started with the “Last Salute” Military Honor Guard presenting colors and firing the “Jaime Lee” Civil War Cannon across the lake. The obstacle course was then set up and each pack present showed up to run the course.

We would like to thank all the volunteers that helped us set-up, manage and clean-up. Special thanks to Taylor Speirs, Chris Bell and Ken Paulmisano for their help in driving the military vehicles and trailers.

The Galloway Patriot newspaper and the Knutson family want to thank the Boy Scouts for inviting us and we want to say how proud we are of them for the great job they did this weekend.

We have over 160 photos here from the event and look forward to next year. The Boy Scout program is such a great way for boys to learn valuable skills and values like the importance of community service.
