Featherily Campout: November 13-15

Posted on Nov 8 2020 - 12:44am

OC ropes course at Featherily/ Canyon RV park at 12 PM on Saturday, November 14th. The Course is built up to 60 feet above the ground. The three-tier course tests your agility, balance, and strength on 4 to 32 fascinating obstacles (like the Burma Buckets and Criss-Cross Tight Ropes). Those who choose to participate are outfitted with harnesses and helmets and are clipped into cable systems that allow them to climb and participate in a variety of challenges safely. Participants can safely take risks while navigating physical challenges highlighting trust and support within teams. We will be working on the Climbing Merit Badge. Scouts will learn about climbing classifications, safety, emergency response, climbing commands, signals and equipment, anchors/protection, knots, belaying, climbing technique, and rappelling. Scouts need sign up ASAP!

Eagle Scouts & College Application

Posted on Oct 17 2020 - 1:12pm

Does being an Eagle Scout help get you into college?  This is a great "Bryan On Scouting" article for Scouters to read and learn what college admissions professionals think of Eagle Scout applicants.  Beyond listing your Eagle Rank as an achievement, this article provides tips on how to integrate your scouting experiences into your application. I hope you learn as much as we did from it. 
Can being an Eagle Scout help you get into college?
