The fourth annual ISW camping trip to Camp Resolute, a Boy scout Reservation in Bolton, MA was a great success. It was great to see many first time campers. It was nice to see several families with small children and grandparents. Activities included Archery, Riffle Shooting, Canoeing, Kayaking and field sports. Playing Antakshari around the campfire while the kids had fun making Smores in the campfire added a cerian uniqueness to the trip. There was of course lots of India food and desserts.
