Annual Swim Test- Required

Posted by rtownsend on Apr 29 2021 - 3:42pm

Tuesday, May 25th will be our Annual Swim Test.  This is a requirement for all scouts.  Adults who plan to attend any water-related activities (canoeing, summer camp, MOHAB, white water rafting, etc.) must also pass the BSA Swim test.  

We will meet at Allatoona Aquatics Base beginning at 6:30p.  

Please see the troop calendar for all details.

Again, this swim test is mandatory.  

Summer is almost here and so are Merit Badge Mondays

Posted by rtownsend on Apr 28 2021 - 1:07pm

Each Monday over the summer scouts will have the opportunity to work on Merit Badges.  Some classes will be over multiple weeks and some will be a single Monday.

Mr. Deveau will be offering Engineering Merit Badge covering several Mondays. Mr. Smith is going to offer Fishing Merit Badge on a single Monday.  Along with these, we have a few others in the works.

Some, like engineering, will take several weeks to complete.  Others, like Fishing, are a great way to start the merit badge and learn some fun skills.

Keep an eye on the calendar for the full offering.

You've heard of Citizenship in the Community.  How about Citizenship in the South?  This is a "spoof" or not real Merit Badge.  Mr. Smith and Mr. Reeves will be hosting this on the last Monday or summer, 7/26.  You'll have a blast learning the finer points of the South.  Spoof Merit Badges are a highlight of the calendar and scouts have earned Citizenship in the Medieval World, Citizenship in the Galaxy, Citizenship in the Jurassic World, and How to Speak Wookie as just a few examples from past years.

New Month, New Focus: A Scout Is...

Posted by rtownsend on Apr 1 2021 - 8:34am


When you think about being friendly, is your first thought "I'm friendly, I smile and say hello to people"?

That is one great example of what it means to be friendly.  As scouts, we promise to go farther.  We promise to live friendly.  How about showing a new person at school to their class.  How about going out of your way to make a new neighbor feel welcome when they move in.  Do you know that walking away from the wrong kind of friends is also demonstrating friendship?

Our scout book reminds us to Demonstrate Scout Spirit and being friendly is one of the best ways that we can live out our promise to the Scout Law, Scout Oath, and Outdoor Code.

New Month, New Focus: A Scout Is...

What a great thing to be known as.  The iconic picture of a Boy Scout helping an elderly person cross a street quickly comes to mind when we think of "Helpful."
