Dear Scouting Family, With more than half of the year behind us, it’s natural for us to look back at the challenges we have navigated in the past few months, as a movement and as a country. But it’s even more important that we look ahead at the opportunities ahead of us. This is the

Photo of the day: This just looks like a normal White Pine, but if you look closely, you will see little black and white aphids on the branch! These aphids eat the tree and secrete a sweet syrup that attracts ants. Since the ants like the syrup, they protect the aphids from any predators like ladybugs! 🐞

It's a great day for boating!

Photo of the day: Our nature director tamed a male dobsonfly this morning! The larvae, called Hellgrammites, start their lifecycle in the water. They molt over 10 times during this 1-3 year period and leave the water when they are ready to pupate. Since Hellgrammites cannot produce silk or cocoons, they did a small hole under a rock or log. They spend about 20 days in this pupa stage before emerging as an adult. They are great fishing bait, but you definitely want to be careful not to get caught in their powerful Pinchers!

Great place to go camping. Especially fun at the Acahela Rocks program.
Thank you Camp Acahela and staff my son had an amazing time.
I hope this is allowed, here is a photo of my Dad in the 1930's, wearing a Camp Acahela Tee shirt. He lived in Wilkes Barre.
