Lake Tahoe Boy Scouts expand their skills
June 24, 2015
The Boy Scouts of local Troop 37 recently completed a six-week program focused on earning merit badges — achievement awards in specific subject areas.
The 10 Scouts who attended earned a total of 22 merit badges during the program which consisted of two focused days of on-site instruction in Carson City and six weeks in which to complete homework for each badge sought.
The badges earned included Aviation, Citizenship in the Community/Nation/World, Cooking, Communications, Environmental Science, Game Design, Geocaching, and Nuclear Science.
These and other merit badges and rank advancement awards were presented to the Scouts at their Court of Honor on May 19.
Ted Parkhill is Publicity Chair for Troop 37 in Incline Village.
