Hi everyone,

As most of you know the West Point Camporee is next week from 4/27-4/30. We will depart from Harold Martin at 12:00 on Thursday the 27th and be back in the late afternoon on Sunday the 30th. The shooting sports based spring camporee on May 5-7 is also coming up. If you plan on attending please email myself and Mr. Rinden so we can get an accurate count of who's going. The annual hike the whites is going to be June 30 - July 2nd and we will be hiking over the cannonballs and spending the night in an AMC hut. We will also hike 20 miles on Cape Cod as part of the hiking merit badge on May 26-28 then stay overnight at a campground. If you have any questions about any of these events feel free to ask.

Eagle Scouts and US Military Academies

At U.S. military academies, Eagle Scouts and former Scouts are everywhere

Scouts who enter our nation’s military academies find themselves with a leg up on their classmates.

Leadership, patriotism and service? Those are characteristics Scouts are known for.

No surprise, then, that student applications from cadets and midshipmen at U.S. military academies reveal an impressive number of Eagle Scouts and former Scouts.

Here’s a look, academy by academy.
