Troop 13 Goes to Camp!


Troop 13 had another great adventure of a week at Cachalot Scout Reservation in Myles Standish State Forest in South Carver, MA. We along with many other troops from the Cape and Islands Council and the Narragansett Council experienced a week full of fun and lots and lots (and I mean a lot of singing)!!! They worked on merit badges to help them achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank of Boy Scouting. The whole camp then had the experience of getting a tour of one of Boston Med Flights four helicopters. Organized by the Cachalot Health Officer Jay, the Boy Scouts got to learn about the technical features of the aircraft and how the company uses it to help people in critical condition get to the hospital. Thank you to Jay for the wonderful experience!!! We also had some 1st years that stayed for the week or even came for a day trip. These kids experienced the fun of summer camp.

Troop 13 would also like to give a big shout out to 2 people that have just earned their Eagle Scout. Congratulations to Austin Caruthers and Daniel Furze. They have worked very hard on their Eagle Projects. Austin did his on building benches at Shad Factory on Reed St near the So. Seekonk Gun Club. Dan did his on sanding, painting, and refurbishing the cannon at the corner of Bay State Road and Rt. 118 across from the American Legion. We have 2 more scouts going for the rank of Eagle who wait to have have their Eagle Scout Board of Reviews. Ben Bellavance and Nate Bell. Congrats to all of you!!!

The troops next big event is Sea Base!!! The trip in in Southern Florida where the boys and adults live on a boat for a week and go scuba diving. Have fun boys!!!
