We're just back from a very successful trip to Flaming Arrow Scout Reservation for their Mini-Camp! 16 Scouts participated in merit badge classes with 12 earning completed badges and four more earning partials. Of the twelve, nine were newly minted Scouts who completed their first merit badge. To top it off, they earned Swimming, an Eagle-required badge that will get them well on their way to this coveted rank in years to come.
In addition, several of our new leaders s
pent their Saturday in a lake, earning the Paddle Craft Safety certification. This designation will facilitate canoe trips and other water-based programs in the future. A tip of the paddle to Steve Cohn, Juca Cohn, Dom Ginex and Steve Widoff. Thanks also to Joe Bejos, Matt McGowan and Wendy Widoff for their involvement in many areas throughout the weekend. Lastly, many, many thanks to Steve Widoff for handling all the logistics of getting us there.
