Well folks, we have returned from a successful and safe week at Goshen Scout Camp - Camp Bowman.
Thirteen Scouts and four adult leaders attended.
Some of the highlights:
- A total of 74 merit badges were completed, with almost all Scouts earning at least 5 each.
- All Scouts and Leaders earned the 2008-2009 Duty to God Achievement. This required that grace be said before all meals, attendance at Mass and the reviewing of at least two Devotionals.
- Our Chaplain's Aide received training by Msgr. John Brady of the Archdiocese of Washington DC.
- Four Scouts completed the Mile Swim Award.
- Four Scouts and three leaders completed the Polar Bear Swim.
- All of the Adult Leaders earned the Camp Bowman Adult Achievement Award.
- The Scouts won the Water Carnival, Campsite Award and Dessert Contest. In fact, we won first, second and third place in the dessert contest with brownies, spice cake and a special "frozen" dish.
- The following service projects were completed: repainting of the Fire Danger sign, repainting of the Camp Bowman Trading Post sign, the new Nature Trail sign and clearing of a trail.
