Troop 13 Goes to Yawgoog


Spending a week in the woods, secluded from the outside world. Not something everyone really likes to do but it’s something that Troop 13 Rehoboth likes! The troop spent 7 days and 6 nights at Camp Yawgoog in Rockville, R.I. which is the Boy Scouts of America’s 4th oldest continuously run Scout Camp in the U.S. and within that week, the troop showed greatness as we were named as Camp Sandy Beach Champion Troop of the Week!! This is only the second year we’ve gone to Yawgoog and stayed at Camp Sandy Beach so we’re very excited for this honor.

The boys also earned a variety of merit badges from Weather to Rowing to Farm Mechanics to Citizenship in the World. Something that all the scouts and their family should be proud of. We even had 6 brand new scouts who endured their first scout camp and loved it. Congrats to Josh H., Danny F., Chase C., Trevor M., Aiden F., and Connor B. These boys learned what it’s really like to be a Boy Scout and we can’t wait for them to grow up with us in the troop.

Eagle Scout News: We are proud to say that we have a lot of young men that are coming up to the important part where some scouts start the final steps to make their Eagle Scout. We have Jacob S. who has completed his Eagle Scout project at D.L. Beckwith Middle School where he created a patio with a tree and circular bench overlooking the baseball field. Something that will be used for many years to come. We also have Billy D. who is starting to do his project at the Mt. Carmel Church in Seekonk, and Logon C. who is creating an outdoor classroom at Dighton Middle school.. Good luck to all three as they work for the highest scout goal.

Troop 13 Rehoboth Scribe (Life Scout)
