THE Patrol does First Service Project of 2022

Posted on Jan 9 2022 - 5:27pm

Popomora Point Park got THE Clean-Up from THE Patrol

This beach park in Atlantic Highlands at the upper end of the Henry Hudson Trail attracted Patrol Leader Hunter W's attention during the week when he spotted lots of garbage washed ashore (see before picture below).

The cleanup was scheduled at a patrol meeting but by Saturday the snow had come and the temperature had dropped making the job much more "interesting".

Some tips from Hunter for planning your own Patrol Project.

    1. Have Scouts show up to patrol meetings
    2. Go when there is no snow

Scouts included Hunter, Ryan, Harry and Alex P.

Finding the trash after the storm was a little like a "treasure" hunt

NEW - Eagle Required Merit Badge

Posted on Dec 5 2021 - 8:03am

Citizenship in SOCIETY

Another Citizenship Merit Badge?  It makes sense.   The Four Aims of Scouting areCharacter Development, Leadership Development, Citizenship Training and Personal Fitness.  All four are repeatedly emphasized in the Scouting program.

Scouts completing the Eagle Rank after June 30th this year will need this Merit Badge.  This may be good reason for a few to hurry up and finish.

But,  this Merit Badge is one worth having on your sash.  And, it could be fun to earn with a group.

What's unique about this badge?  There is No Merit Badge Book!  You can see the requirements HERE.  Self study and discussion with the counselor and with other Scouts will be the main mode of learning.

Does this mean that 22 Merit Badges are required now for Eagle?  It hasn't been said yet but if history repeats, the total required will still be 21 with one less elective.

Bryan on Scouting has an extensive discussion on the Citizenship in Society MB and there is a Fact Sheet HERE .
