Laura tells us about Upton

Upton this year wasn’t exactly what we were expecting, but still a very satisfying experience. The bases weren’t what we thought they’d be, either, and not anything like the training we’d done. It was a wonderful hike ending at Hawequas, like Upton did last year. 1st Claremont did well in the competition, and we scored notable positions of first, second and eighth out of the six patrols entered. I think all the Scouts from all the many troops enjoyed the competition and learned a lot from the day spent there.
