The North Star Group of the Federation of North-American Explorers (FNE) held its first winter camp for its boys’ units (1st St. John Neumann Timber Wolf Den and 1st St. John Neumann Explorer Troop) on Super Bowl weekend (Friday, January 30 – Sunday, February 1). Joining us for this historic (from our point of view, anyway) event were our brothers from Our Lady of the Annunciation FNE in West Virginia – 1st St. John Berchmans Timber Wolf Den and 1st St. John Berchmans Explorer Troop (read more about St. John Berchmans – the patron saint of altar servers – here).
These four units, which together made for three sixes of Timber Wolves, and three Explorer patrols, camped in Belleplain State Forest in southern New Jersey. The Timber Wolves stayed at the group cabin by the East Creek pond, while the Explorers camped at the more rustic lean-tos on the shores of Lake Nummy.
