Troop 13 News

Posted

The boys of Troop 13 Rehoboth enjoyed a week of summer camp at Camp Yawgoog which is located in Rockville Rhode Island. Camp Yawgoog is a premier Boy Scout camp and is one of the crown jewels of BSA and we are very lucky to have it right in our back yard.

One of the greatest joys of being a scout master is seeing boys transition into young men over their tenure in the troop. I could not be prouder for each and every scout in our troop. For instance, Sam D is the scout who writes the articles for the Rehoboth reporter informing you of the happenings of our troop, James F and Joe A help the Webelos in Cub Scout Pack 1, and ALL our scouts participate in community service on a regular basis. Troop 13 holds steadfast onto the original vision of Baden Powell and that is a program of “boys leading boys” in an outdoor format. Troop 13 does a great job at producing strong young male leaders and in 2017 five of those leaders reached the rank of Eagle Scout!

Jack S is our SPL (Senior Patrol Leader) and is the leader of our troop. He is assisted by Joe A which is ASPL. At camp this year Sam D, Joe A, and Jacob S completed the mile swim and Matt B placed 3rd in the “Tin Man” (iron man) competition! Outstanding Job gentlemen! If you know of any boys who love the outdoors and wants to be part of a program that promotes male leadership and fun then have them contact me. Bill Dalpe 508-326-0293.
