Chicago scoutmaster travels to Minnesota camp each summer at age 94
At 94 years old, Scoutmaster Russ Gremel has made a name for himself at Many Point Scout Camp north of Ponsford. He has been bringing his troop from the northwest side of Chicago to the northern Minnesota scout camp for nine years.
“This is the best camp we’ve been to, by far,” he said. Gremel has been Scoutmaster of Troop 979 for more than 60 years and has enjoyed every minute of it. The boys keep him young, he maintains.
