Tonight, a handful of the superheroes of Troop 39 who raised $8000 for the UNC Children’s Hospital presented a check to Dr Wesley Burks.

 

 

The scouts were also treated to a guided tour of the hospital to show how their hard earned dollars that they raised are put to good use.

What a fantastic weekend – it takes a lot more than heavy rain and the odd slip when crossing the river to dampen the spirits of Troop 39!

 

Thanks to Naticus Minimus for some of these photos!

This is well worth 20 minutes of your time and your scout’s time.

Also … this is a great read!  The letter/message board post he references in the video that he wrote to a Scout who was wandering off the trail to Eagle.

This came across my desk a few weeks ago and I had intended to share with parents and scouts of Troop 39.   This research shows the true societal value of being an Eagle Scout.

One hundred years after Arthur Eldred of New York earned this nation’s first Eagle Scout Award, new, independent research demonstrates the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society every day. Since it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million young men have achieved the Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank. The study conducted by Baylor University, Merit Beyond the Badges, found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to:

  • Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
  • Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
  • Report having closer relationships with family and friends
  • Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
  • Donate money to charitable groups
  • Work with others to improve their neighborhoods

Hi folks – some initial photos from the camp for you to enjoy – there will be more to come.  What a wonderful experience we all had.    The weather was very cooperative for most of the week, we even needed sleeping bags on some nights as the temperatures dipped nicely in the evenings.

A first for the troop in recent memory – well, at least this generation of scouts –  is that the troop won the Camp Spirit Stick.    The troop went on to earn the Honor Patrol award, The OA Camp Participation Award and the Camp Duty to God award.

All Scouts showed great spirit, competing in the Camp Olympics on Wednesday night and on Friday, and the leaders delivered on their end of the bargain by creating a new Syncro class in the leader’s Flop from the Dock contest.

Over 44 Merit Badges were earned – probably more when the final count is made – and there were many many, nearly complete partials to add to this list that the scouts can work on completing over the summer.

On return to Chapel Hill, the leaders paid tribute to the scouts o Troop 39, picking out features of the week where the scouts had demonstrated wonderful scout spirit aligned to the 12 points of the Scout Law.  The leaders were unanimous – we agreed we would take each and every one of those boys back to camp to do it all again – but not this week!

Enjoy the pictures, there will be more to come!
