Seven Ranges Campout 

Back from an exciting weekend at Seven Ranges. This was our final camping trip of 2017, but there will be more adventures to come in 2018!

It was a cool weekend, but the events were fun, and the Star Wars theme made it a trip to remember.

Check out the photos from the weekend in the Troop Gallery! Next up, the Troop Christmas party. See you in December!

Be sure to check out the photos in the Troop Gallery.

If you have an older book, you should print THESE REPLACEMENT PAGES so that you are up to date with the requirements that became mandatory on 1/1/17.  You do not lose credit for any requirements completed, but you must meet all the new requirements in order to advance to the next rank. 

The Conservation Project requirement for Life seems to cause a lot of confusion for Scouts

The best and most consistent source we have is the BSA’s “Conservation Good Turn” award which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking here.

Although you DO NOT need to complete this award to satisfy the requirement, we do ask that you use it as a guide when you and your patrol together explorer patrol projects that would.  The following is an excerpt which should serve as your guide when organizing projects that would satisfy the requirement:

Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers - Suggested projects include, but are not limited to

  1. Plant shrubs to provide food and cover for wildlife.
  2. Build and set out bird and squirrel nesting boxes.
  3. Conduct stream improvement projects to prevent erosion.
  4. Plant grasses and legumes to provide ground cover in schoolyards, public parks, and recreation areas.
  5. Plant tree seedlings as part of a managed forestry plan.
  6. Help thin and prune woodlands in a managed tree improvement project.
  7. With a local forester, take part in or conduct a forest fire prevention program.
  8. Make an exhibit on conservation for a county fair.
  9. Develop a nature trail in a public park.
  10.  Assist a local forester in a tree insect- and disease-control or public education project.
  11. Assist a local agency with a trout stream restoration project.
  12. Participate in a wildlife or wildfowl count.
  13. Conduct a rodent-control and public health education program under the guidance of the local health department or agency responsible for rodent control.

To verify the completion/satisfaction of this requirement, we ask that you FIRST arrange the project with either the Campmaster or Ranger of the facility, THEN carry out the project and have the Campmaster/Ranger document and verify the hours worked and that the project was satisfactorily completed.
