Court of Honor

2023-04-27: Court of Honor

It’s crazy to realize that it has already been 6 months since our troop was founded and that we’ve already doubled in size! To recognize everyone’s hard work and dedication, we held our very first Court of Honor last week! Thank you to everyone who came, especially our Unit Commissioner, Mike Lotz, to help congratulate our scouts on all the new ranks & merit badges they have earned over the last few months. Special thanks to our Advancement Coordinator, Julie Vila, on helping get everything in place to help our Court of Honor go off without a hitch. We know several of you were not able to attend due to prior commitments, please be sure to pick up your patches & pins from your Advancement the next chance you get.

2023-04-23: Camp Westin

We headed up to Camp Westin this weekend, a new location for us. With nearing the end of the school year, the group this weekend was smaller, and we had just a little bit of rain overnight on Friday, but everyone stayed safe & dry and by Saturday morning is was clear it was going to shape up to be a fantastic weekend! Haile stepped up to be our acting SPL for the weekend, and did fantastic job! The day was free flowing, with the scouts exploring the camp, working on rank advancements, and making new friends, especially Troop 306 & Troop 703. In the afternoon, everyone worked together rebuilding a picnic table, replacing missing bolts & broken boards so that it will be solid & sturdy for years to come. Overall, it was another pretty great weekend! Check out some highlights below or follow the link to see the full photo album.

Geo Caching MB Wrap Up

At last week’s troop meeting, we finished up our work on the Geo Caching Merit Badge we started a few weeks ago. Everyone practiced orienting a compass to a map, we split into teams so each so each group could hide some temporary caches for the other team to find, and most fun of all, we installed a permanent public Geo Cache Unity North Atlanta! The cache has been registered on GeoCaching.com and should hopefully be visible soon. Do you have scouts working on the Geo Caching MB who need to find a public cache? Stop by ours and be the first in our logbook!

2023-03-21: Weekend at Woodruff

Things weren’t looking too promising when we left on Friday. It was raining, the forecast was calling for bitterly cold temps, but that didn’t deter us! We headed up to @woodruffscoutcamp for a weekend of fun and by the time we arrived, it the rain had already cleared. The scouts got camp setup and we all gathered around a nice warm campfire. Saturday more was as cold as they predicted, but the sun was soon shining and we got spent the morning working on the Geo Caching Merit Badge before splitting into groups to go track down some caches! After a late lunch, with the Geo Caching MB nearly complete, we switched over to the the Eagle Required Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge to help kick start anyone looking to wanted get that one knocked out too. It ended up being a wonderful & relaxing weekend, with lots of time spent around chatting around the all day fire. Excited to see where we end up next!

Adopt-A-Mile

2023-03: Adopt-A-Mile

We had our first Keep Cobb Beautiful Adopt A Mile of the year yesterday, the sun may have been shining, but the blowing wind made this a chilly one. Still, thanks to everyone who came out to help, we were able to get 7+ bags of trash off the streets and properly disposed. Adopt A Miles are always a lot of fun and a great way to give back to the community.

Outings & Activities

Cumberland Caverns

This weekend we headed up to Tennessee for a short hiking and caving trip. We left Saturday morning to do a short hike up to Greeter Falls and have a nice picnic lunch before heading over to spend the night at Cumberland Caverns. After checking in to the cavern, the scouts donned helmets, and crawled through a 14″ by 33″ test box to make sure everyone could make it through the caves. We then took 3 hours to traverse 1.5 miles is cave, climbing over and crawling under boulders, and squeezing through some very tight spaces. We ended the night with a walking tour of the upper Caverns, had some dinner, and slept in the complete darkness of the cave.
