Patrol Pride

A beaver’s family is called a colony and beavers are the only animal, other than humans, that changes its environment to suit its needs.  Beavers make a difference!

Yesterday, I became very ill. Members of my colony in the Beaver Patrol went above and beyond in caring for me.  Their concern, watchfulness, and consideration for my well being puts a catch in my throat.  Each member of my Patrol stepped in and helped – either to maintain Patrol Activities, or simply to care for me.  They exemplified exactly what Patrol and Wood Badge life is all about!
Less than a week ago, these people were complete strangers. Now they are my Colony…my family.
Thank you to all who showed concern – but a special and heartfelt thank you to my Patrol – Bob, Amanda, Kevin, and Derek.  Needless to say, I am  PROUD to be a Beaver!
Thank You,
Scott Cunningham

The Bears

Today got off to a little bit of a rough start for The Bears, because the alarm in one of our tents didn’t go off and two members were late to breakfast. After that though, things got back on the right track, and everything has gone great since then! The presentations were entertaining and didn’t drag on, and the conservation project was enjoyed by all! Soon enough we’ll be rafting, which is a very exciting prospect. See ya after that!

The Owls
#owlsrock #owlscanraft 
Another high flying day for the 🦉 owls. Mentoring and coaching our way to hammock heaven as we made service another nest egg. Then came the New River and a rip roaring time.
 Humbled by week, the learning and the friendship the Owls have begun roosted as the week draws to a close.
