Scouts, Leaders and families of Troop 185 took a break from the holidays to honor four great examples of scouting.
Chris Johnson, Brent Lewis, Austin Riggs and Ben Tizanno all formally received their Eagle Ranks during the fall Court of Honor. All four scouts joined Troop 185 at the same time and survived Brown Sea at Camp Falling Rock under the careful guidance of Scoutmaster Chuck Johnson.
Troop 185 has now produced 106 Eagle Scouts - with more on the way.
After the ceremony all Troop 185 Eagle Scouts present joined for a photo.
A small contingent from Troop 185 visited Gettysburg National Military Park August 1-4, 2015 and completed the "Gettysburg Heritage Trails" program to earn the badge/medal. Elements included hiking the Billy Yank and Johnny Reb Trails, Downtown Gettysburg, Visitor Center and National Cemetery, and visiting the Eisenhower National Historic Site. Check out some of the photos in the Troop 185 Photo album!
As they waited for the grueling duty of helping the HFP Triathlon at Deer Creek State Park, Troop 185 Scouts learned about geocaching.
Scouts hunted for and found hidden objects by means of GPS coordinates. The scouts had to track "The Travel Bug" which showed where a council patch was located. If the bug was there, the scouts were able to tell where the patch was located.
