2014 Saw New Adventures

The troop grew again in 2014 and more members qualified for the National Honor Society of scouting - the Order of the Arrow.

2014 was a busy year and we made plans for more adventures in the future.

While they completed their Ordeal in the spring of 2014, we made plans for summer camp. Many of the scouts took Eagle badges this year in preparation for their pursuit of the highest scouting rank. Three of our scouts completed their Life Scout rank and started on their Eagle project planning.

In September, the entire troop went to RockyFace mountain, camping nearby. The scouts and adult scoutmasters ALL participated in an incredible rappelling adventure. We started at a three-story building height for practice then most everyone descended the mountain from sixty feet or more up using a sheer face to "walk down" as we all rappelled safely to the ground. 

With two Courts of Honor in September and then December we saw many scouts progress to Star scout rank, and our newer scouts started the climb towards the top. Our pot luck dinners are always a success and the families enjoyed the evenings.

In 2015, we have already planned several trips, training opportunities, and participation in regional Order of the Arrow events. We hope you will join us and come see how good scouting can be!
