Eagle Scout Info

  1. 1. Path to Eagle Scout = Path to Fun! Troop Highlights and Advantages: ● Summer camps rotate yearly through different California locations (Chawanakee, Catalina Island, Wolfeboro). ● An annual high adventure trip is offered each summer (Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico; Florida SeaBase; and Northern Tier). ● Local troop fun includes organized campouts (e.g., camping at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk last month and fishing next weekend at Lake Chabot). Campouts include fishing, hiking and rafting. ● Occasional day activities include bowling, paintball, rock climbing, cycling, skiing and hiking. ● Community service opportunities include Scouting for food; Fourth of July Fair involvement; the Pear Festival; the Moraga Triathlon; the Moraga Community Fair; and beach cleanups. ● We boast a very high Eagle completion rate: − A smaller troop allows for leadership opportunities. − Scout leaders know every scout very well and provide necessary guidance along the path to an Eagle. − T 246 parents are qualified to teach 11 of the 12 Eagle-required merit badges. The badges are taught on a regular 3-year schedule. The 12th Eagle badge is offered at all summer camps. − 3 to 4 optional badges are offered troopwide each year (e.g., auto mechanics, railroading, rock climbing and weather will be taught on 4 weekend days this school year). − No previous scouting experience is necessary to join our troop. Please note that some activities are mandatory; others are optional. We expect responsible participation, but we fully understand striking a balance with family/school and other activities.
