Deaf Scouts take on camp competition

The Miami Herald had a nice write up about Troop 726, the only deaf Troop in South Florida, yesterday:

The Boy and Cub Scouts campsites at Carlos Arboleya Park were crowded and noisy Saturday, with packs of gabbing boys cooking and tying logs together with rope.
