May is Rock Climbing Month!
2015 Promises to be a big year for Troop 50. Starting with our annual skiing and winter sports trip and then moving to our Gold Rush February campout. In March we will be roughing it with a mountainman campout complete with shotgun and rifle shooting, cooking on open fires and night hiking through some untamed forests. April is our annual Crossover weekend for new Scouts moving up from Weblos, and May will be a month with a climbing theme. More to come as the year moves into summer!

May Merit Badge Spotlight: Climbing
& Emergency Preparedness
Climbing: Climbing is not a sport that requires tremendous muscular strength; it demands mental toughness and the willingness to practice hard to master a set of skills. The adventure of climbing can also provide a new way to enjoy the outdoors.
Emergency Preparedness: Scouts are often called upon to help because they know first aid and they know about the discipline and planning needed to react to an emergency situation. Earning this merit badge helps a Scout to be prepared by learning the actions that can be helpful and needed before, during, and after an emergency.
