Troop 857 –

As you’ve undoubtedly heard, COVID-19 is forcing the cancellation of group events around the country.  Northminster has decided to act in concert with Governor DeWine’s order.  As our chartered organization, we will follow their lead.  All Troop 857 activities are cancelled for the next three weeks.  The backpacking campout and the Troop meetings for the remainder of March are cancelled.

Check out these tips for staying warm on cold-weather campouts.


Do you know what to do if you are LOST??

Posted on Aug 10 2012 - 7:23am

Your watch reads 4:30 p.m. when you get the unsettling feeling that you're not where you should be. A few hours ago, you struck out solo to explore a route in your favorite wilderness–but now the terrain doesn't match the map, and the trail has vanished. How did you get here? How can you get out?

Tips for staying warm while you sleep

Posted on Jul 25 2012 - 7:25pm

Is your sleeping bag's performance affected by what you wear when you sleep?

Absolutely. For the most part, your best bet is to sleep in your long johns. Not only does this keep the liner free from contamination (from your body oils, dirt, sunscreen, bug spray, etc.), it provides a wicking layer that will pull sweat away from your skin as you sleep, so you don’t get that clammy feeling.
