Welcome to Summer

Just a few weeks ago we thought these days would never come but now the weather has turned hot and sticky, just in time for summer camp. Our Cubs attended the National Pike District Day camp June 22-26 and our Boy Scouts attended Camp Rock Enon from June 27 to July 4. Everyone had a great time and wants to keep up the momentum for advancement throughout the remainder of the summer.

On Thursday, June 18 we had a bridging ceremony for Nicholas R. who has completed his Arrow of Light award and will be moving on to our Boy Scout troop. Some of our younger Cubs were also awarded their badge of rank on Thursday and we all enjoyed a delicious potluck dinner to celebrate.

The Boy scouts who went to summer camp completed 10 Eagle required Merit Badges and 13 other merit badges  with 12 partially completed merit badges. Those scouts in the Frontier (First Year Program) completed many
requirements for Scout thru First Class requirements. Kendell completed the final Eagle required meritbadge that he needs to reach the rank of Life Scout so now he will have his Scoutmaster conference, committee board of review and be on his way!

What a great way to kick off our summer activities

Troop and Pack Collected Food for the Bridgeway Food Pantry
As part of the Scouting for Food program with the Baltimore Area Council our Troop and Pack put out collection bags on March 7 on over 2700 doors in our District. On March 14 we returned to pick up the full bags and deliver the food to the Bridgeway Pantry.  We collected several hundred pounds of food to help the less fortunate.
