Please join your friends and invite your families to attend our quarterly Court of Honor.

This Weekend
Gettysburg Camping
Up to 10 Scouts will travel to Gettysburg PA for a little Winter Camping, Hiking, and Service
Intended for older Scouts, this trip will present opportunities to work on the 5 patches of the Gettysburg Historical Trail, culminating in the medal.  The opportunity to fulfill Hiking, Cooking, Camping, American Heritage, and Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge Requirements exists.  As always, patches are part of your dues, medals are paid for by Scouts.
There will also be an opportunity to earn the Historic Trails Award.
There will be two hikes around the battlefield, and tours of three historical areas: the Visitor's Center, downtown Gettysburg, and Eisenhower's Farm.
