Boy Scout Troop 115 took to the skies on Aug. 20 for a full day of high adventure and extreme adrenaline rushes.
In the western part of Georgia lies a secret that many do not know about. The Banning Mills Canopy Tour is located in a small area known as Whitesburg. Troop 115 took advantage of the opportunity and conducted their high adventure for the day.
Strapping up with a harness, gloves, helmet, and other safety equipment, Troop 115 closed out their year of adventure by going up in the air for a day of traverse bridges and ziplines. At heights of 100 feet, the adrenaline was pumping and the boys had a blast trekking through the forest tops at speeds topping 70 mph in some areas.
The troop is looking forward to 2011-2012 as more fun and adventure is in store for them. If you are a boy age 11 and up and are interested in what Boy Scouting can be like for you, feel free to go to www.bsatroop115.com and read up about us. We also have video from the Banning Mills Trip up on our website.
