Restoring Whitney Campsite at Makajawan

Posted on Jul 11 2021 - 1:08pm

This past week, Troop 71 conducted a service project to restore portions of 'our' Whitney campsite at Makajawan.  The back section of the campsite had yet to be restored from the storm of 2019 that laid a path of destruction through the Makajawan reservation.  This portion of Whitney is extra special to T71 as the troop had erected a memorial shelter in 2007 to a T71 Eagle Scout, Adam Roach, who had passed away tragically a year before.
