Troops 403 and 405 prepare to serve their community

On October 29, Troop 403 and Troop 405 are coming together to conduct an emergency drill as part of the Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge. Along with merit badge requirements, this drill is a demonstration to city officials of Boy Scouts can be incorporated into their emergency response plans. Troops 403 and 405 plans to demonstrate triage, minor care for injured, and sheltering and caring for those displaced by a disaster. Part of the training for the scouts will include CERT, Community Emergency Response Team.

In a disaster, Firefighters, and Paramedics are overwhelmed with people in need. Boy Scouts, if called upon, can serve the community by providing care for the less injured quicker. Boy Scouts can also use their equipment to provide a comfortable place to get out of the weather, hot beverages, and first aid treatment. 29, at 7:00 PM. The location is Cross of Glory Church 5901

Over 250 Survive the 2012 Fall Camporee

On September 28 - 30, Northern Lights took over Rum River Scout Camp for the 2012 Fall Camporee. Organized by Patrick Bartell, the camporee focused on the wilderness survival merit badge. Scouts sharpened their wilderness skills such as first aid, water filtration, signaling, fire starting, shelter building and orienteering. Northern Lights Webelos also attended the camporee on Saturday afternoon to get a taste of what boy scouts is all about. Scouts from Troop 575 organized the final campfire with skits and the award ceremony. Including the coveted Golden Spoon. Among all of the fun competitions, the camporee featured the first annual Dutch Oven Dessert Contest, with the award being a Golden Spoon. Troop 368 won the Golden Spoon with their gooey, chocolate dessert. A special thanks goes to all of the instructors, staff, and troop leaders, and especially Patrick Bartell: you all survived the Northern Lights Fall Camporee!
