This month was all about cooking and being in the great outdoors. We kicked off this mouth with a “Chopped” cooking challenge in the park. The Hooters patrol won the competition with their unique version of chili spaghetti and peanut butter pudding dessert. The next meeting was egg-tastic as we learned to make omelets on our camp stoves and we prepared to go camping. This month’s camping trip was at Sand Camp. We had one group go backpacking through the Redwoods while the rest of the troop stayed back at camp. The Atomic Biscuits worked on getting their firemen and totin chips, while the Waffle Dragons hike the BSA Tree Trail. We finished off this month with a kitchen safety hazard game and a service project.

Each year as we head into summer Troop 48 holds an "end of year*" barbeque event. This year we held the event at Eagle Point's Chamerlain Park. Scouts cooked for the adults and siblings, played several outdoor games, and engaged in a suqirt gun "battle royale". 

*Even though Troop 48 engages in many activities over the summer, we consider the end of the school year as the end of our troop's more traditional year. Over the the summer months we focus less on advancement and skill building, and more on informal activities. This allow us to keep having fun without disadvantaging scouts who may be abesnt for family sumertime activities and vacations. We also use this time to attend anual Sumer Camp and for our yearly High Adventure outing.

Troop 48 Formally Recognized by the City of Eagle Point

Posted on May 16 2018 - 6:17pm

At the May 8th city council meeting the City of Eagle Point formally recognized the many hours of service provided to the community by Troop 48. The city also recognized one of our Eagle Scouts for his work replacing the entire fence at Mattie Brown park.

Many of our scouts took this opportunity to also work on some of their requirements for the Citizenship in the Community merit badge which required they attend a City Council meeting and report on the issues they saw discussed.

For many of them this was an eye opening experience into the types of issues and decisions facing our town on a daily basis, they learned of two plans to renovate the old fire house, a new update to the ordinance to change parking requirements in downtown, saw the city have to make difficult decisions surrounding the upgrades to Lynn road, as well as adoption of new branding for the city.
