October means

Natural Shelters - Camping in the wild without tents and cooking on fires!

2014 Has been a great year to far and more summer fun is on the way.  We have enjoyed skiing, shotgun shooting, Crossover with Weblos joining the troop, a super rock climbing weekend campout.  We had a fun weekend in Washington D.C. and saw many historic sites and The Air and Space Museum.  We also got to greet 130 WWII veterans at the WWII monument, a real experience.  Summer camp and our High Adventure Trip to Seabase were great and we look forward to similar experiences this coming Scout year.  Still to come in 2014: Submarine Torsk, spelunking campout, natural shelters campout!

October Merit Badge Spotlight: Weather & Wilderness Survival

  Weather Merit BadgeWilderness Survival Merit Badge

Weather Merit Badge: Meteorology is the study of Earth's atmosphere and its weather and the ways in which temperature, wind, and moisture act together in the environment. In addition to learning how everyday weather is predicted, Scouts can learn about extreme weather such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes, and how to stay safe.

Wilderness Survival: In their outdoor activities, Scouts learn to bring the clothing and gear they need, to make good plans, and do their best to manage any risks. But now and then, something unexpected happens. When things go wrong, the skills of wilderness survival can help make everything right again.
