April 2023 Tent Repair
Earning Big G Gold.
On April 9th, troops 323 and 3323 went up to Heard Scout Pueblo for a service project. Scouts were repairing the tents that are used at Geronimo during the summer. This service project is one of the requirements to earn Big G Gold this year at summer Camp.
Court Of Honor
On April 25th Troop 323 and 3323 held a court of honor at All Saints Lutheran Church. During the Court of Honor, scouts get to recognize for their accomplishments over the past few months, including ranks and merit badges earned. Most of the new Scouts earned their Scout rank, and several older scouts earned various ranks. This is the last COH for this scouting year, at the next one we will be welcoming two new SPLs and two new scoutmasters!
April 22-23 was the annual R-C outing with the Pack. Troop 323 and 3323 joined Pack 323 at Camp R-C for their last outing of the year. They took hikes, the older scouts taught skills to younger scouts, and Mr. McCauley cooked a delicious meal. Also, there were scouts skits, and corny jokes in the amphitheater. The pack had a fun time hanging out with the troop, and they can’t wait to crossover.
On April 15-16 Troop 323, and Troop 3323 had their beginners backpacking trip for the scouts who just crossed at the last outing. Prior to the trip, the troops prepared the new by showing how backpacking was different from car camping, and how to pack a backpack. However, there is no better way to learn than just going out and experiencing it for yourself. The new scouts along with the troop hiked 1.5 miles to the camping spot, learned how to set up their tents, and cooked a yummy meal of tortellini. It was a hot weekend, but that didn’t discourage anyone, it was a successful outing and no new scouts were scared from the experience, so I call that a win.
