 Yorktown Trip 2018

On veteran's day weekend, scouts travelled down to Charleston, South Carolina to learn about the history of the American military and past wars in the 20th century. Scouts also got to stay in the Yorktown's bedrooms during the night and participate in flight simulations. The weekend was fantastic, and it was the perfect time to go, as it was veteran's day weekend. We all look forward to visiting again in the future.

 Shooting Campout 2018

Last August, scouts took a trip to learn and practice firing rifles. The scouts were taught how to safely manage, clean, and use the rifles, and also learned firing commands of the range. Some scouts even left the camp with the requirements to complete the riflery merit badge. Scouts said that they had a blast, and others could have benefited from the experience too!

 Order of the Arrow Induction 2018

Last spring, 10 qualified scouts were elected by their fellow troop members to be inducted into the Boy Scouts of America's National Honors Society: The Order of the Arrow. The elected scouts travelled to Camp Durant to face challenges that, if passes, would complete their induction into the Order. The first challenge was fasting, the second was hard conservation work from morning to late afternoon, and the last and most difficult challenge was silence for the whole day. The challenges were rewarded with a large dinner and a celebration after the induction ceremony.

Winter Campout 2018

In January, our first trip of the new year was the Winter Campout at Camp Raven Knob. When our troop arrived, there was snow on the ground and the lake was frozen. We quickly set up tents and started a campfire. We chopped down bamboo stalks and used them for Bamboo Bombs, a Winter Campout classic. The next day, we went on a hike for the morning up and over a mountain. We then headed back to camp to practice scout skills and explore. The troop gathered for a campfire program Saturday night, and then went to bed. After a cold night, we packed up and headed back to Raleigh.

Kings Mountain Backpacking Trip 2017

In November, 9 scouts and 4 adults went backpacking in Kings Mountain State Park in South Carolina. The group walked a total of 16 miles on the trip throughout the mountains. They carried all of their food and gear in their packs for the duration of their journey. They had a great time and really enjoyed the backpacking journey. Some of them used the trek as an opportunity to work on their Backpacking merit badge. If you are interested in backpacking, then I suggest also checking out the merit badge. You can learn more about it at http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Backpacking

Bear Island Fishing Trip 2017

In October our Troop had 11 scouts go to a crown jewel of the North Carolina coast, Bear Island.  Bear Island is a three-mile-long, undeveloped barrier island accessible by the park’s passenger ferry. We fished all day and had an absolute blast.  We worked on the fishing merit badge and enjoyed a weekend camping on the beach.  We caught a bunch of fish.

October Canoe Trip 2017 

9 of our scouts attended the Roanoke River Canoeing Trip in October. They met up at the church at 4, drove down to Williamston, and camped at the River Landing Friday night. On Saturday, they canoed 7 miles downstream to the Beaver lodge, where they spent the second night. On Saturday morning, they packed up and canoed another 2 miles to the Jamesville River Access, where they were picked up. If this trip sounds interesting to you, you might want to look into the canoeing merit badge. You can check it out at Canoeing - MeritBadgeDotOrg

Troop 352 20th Anniversary Court of Honor

Our Troop held a Court of Honor to congratulate two of our scouts on making the prestigious rank of Eagle. This was also combined with a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the creation of Troop 352. We started off by awarding our scouts with their various rank advancements and merit badges, and then held a ceremony to honor Nick Sykes and Eric Toussaint. We then took a break to eat. After that, each of our previous and our current troop scoutmasters each gave a speech about how our troop has developed and grown over these past 20 years. We also had all of the Eagle Scouts present at the ceremony come up and take a group picture. Everyone enjoyed it, and it was a great experience.

Virginia Creeper Trail 2017

33 of us scouts and 13 adults had lots of fun last weekend up in Virginia. We enjoyed an 18 mile bike ride cruising downhill through the countryside, admiring the view and the fresh air. About halfway through, we stopped for a snack and ice cream while hanging out with friends. We then finished the second half, and headed back to camp. The scouts then worked on the camping merit badge by taking a two hour 5 mile hike throughout the mountains to practice map reading and just have some fun. We then had some dinner and celebrated the birthdays of Conner Fontenot and Mr. Nemecek. Overall, it was a fantastic trip and I’m sure us scouts would love to do it again.

Parents: Diocese of Raleigh Level C Training

Posted on May 22 2018 - 7:56am

The Diocese of Raleigh and St. Francis of Assisi, our chartering organization for Troop 352, requires all adults volunteering with youth to complete the 'Level C' safe environment requirements. This is for everyone driving to outings, going on a trip, serving as merit badge counselor or otherwise working with our youth. Level C requires submitting an application, letters of reference and completion of Safe Environment training. This is an important part of protecting our youth and we appreciate you helping us stay compliant with this policy. We suggest taking care of it now so that you can help out as needed at any Troop 352 activity. For the Level C application and more information please see the St. Francis website https://www.stfrancisraleigh.org/safe_environment/. There are courses offered at St. Francis, the next training course is June 9.

Congrats New Troop Leadership!
