As many of our loyal readers know, the Troop goes out on a Big Trip Out West (BTOW) every three years. However, what does it does in the in between years? One of those years, and sometimes both, is sending the troop to Goshen Scout Reservation - Camp Bowman.
This year, our Scouts attended in early July and not only had a great deal of fun, they earned badges. Below you will find a chart documenting both the completions and partials earned by our Scouts.
After the presentation of the Eagle Neckerchief, we have he pinning of the Eagle Badge, and the Mother and Father pin. Finally, we come to the Eagle Charge, given by an Eagle Scout with all Eagle Scouts in attendance.
On Saturday evening, June 25, 2016, an Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held for Chris B. His Board of Review was in mid-March but due to school and other events, it was difficult to schedule it any earlier. So, here are some photos from the event.
Our first Eagle Scout project of the year by Devin W. will benefit Brookside Gardens Nature Center. The center has a sort of discovery area for small children with a gravel "sand" pit, an observation area, benches, etc.
The goal of the project was to build "Ft. Brookside," a small structure that children can hang things from. Oh, and did I mention it also has a bench!
Here are some photos from the June 11, 2016 AM building session. More photos to follow
