2019 January Washington DC Trip

Fresh into the new year, our troop took a nice trip north to visit the nation's capital. We got to visit the new museum about news and media, the "Newseum". Inside of the museum were many facts about the history of news and the 1st amendment. Next, we entered the holocaust museum and learned many facts about WWII and the holocaust. Unfortunately due to there being a government shutdown, our troop couldn't visit the other museums and attractions we had planned. Even with the government shutdown, we still had a phenomenal time.

Philmont Practice-Grayson Highlands 2018

In April, scouts that were preparing for the Philmont trip travelled west to Grayson highlands for 6 days to practice backpacking. This was the largest backpacking trip since they went to High Knoll summer of 2017. The first days were cold and windy, but the weather started getting warmer as the week went on; sadly the scouts had to leave a day early because of new incoming snowy weather.

 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.

-Matthew M, Troop Historian

 

 

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.

Troop Virtual Meetings

Posted on Jun 23 2020 - 10:53am

During the Covid-19 pandemic, our troop has switched to doing our meetings virtually over WebEx Training Center. The structure of the meetings is similar to our in person meetings. One difference is our post meeting breakout sessions that we hold. At the end of every meeting, we will send two adult leaders to meet with any scouts who have asked to work on a merit badge or get a requirement signed off.
