In the last 2 weeks 2 scouts have participated in an ordeal to enter to scouts honor society (or the order of the arrow). Both scouts had to do service projects while not speaking and eating very little. In the end both scouts completed the ordeal and are now members of the order.

Greifensee Campout 2019

Our latest camping trip started with a hike on a Saturday morning after eating a breakfast cooked by the scouts to feed their patrol. We cooked lunch after and did some rank advancements. This was beneficial for the younger scouts. After that we had some free time. The scouts made their dinner and practiced songs for the campfire that was happening later. We finished the trip with a game of Mafia.

Court of Honor – 26th May 2018

We had a great court of honor at the end of May 2018. 31 Merit badges were awarded and 13 rank advancements. We also had an Eagle court of honor where we celebrated Tommy and John’s advancement to Eagle scout, the highest rank in scouting. We also bid farewell to our great advancement co-ordinator Mrs. Schupp.

Eagles Around Us

On May 26th Aidan completed his Eagle project and this past weekend, George also earned his Eagle project. These scouts are soon to earn their Eagles and will join Tommy, John and Shareef. There have been an unprecedented amount of Eagle scouts this year.

Murg Camping – April 2018

Murg Camping – Overview
 
The latest camping trip that we went on was at the lake near Murg train station and right next to the Walensee. The sun was out all the time during the day,it got a little cold at night, but overall it was a great outing. A highlight was the lake near the campsite because it made the campsite seem a lot more inviting, but the water was pretty cold! Another activity that we did was a 7 mile hike with a 1000 feet elevation gain and it was very tiring.
