Scouts go camping

Enduring one of the hottest weeks of the summer to learn new Scouting skills, Boy Scout Troop 550 went on a camping trip recently to the Baltimore Area Council's Broad Creek Memorial Scout Reservation in Harford County, near the Susquehanna River.

The boys swam, played sports, did handicrafts and other projects.

Awards earned by the Scouts were:

Sam Branham, shotgun, fishing and finger-printing merit badges; Jason Carter, archery, camping, and finger-printing merit badges; Travis Elseroad, camping, finger-printing and Indian lore merit badges; John Henkel, Boy Scouts of America lifeguard; Chris LaWall, finger-printing and cooking merit badges; Dan Severn, finger-printing, archery, shotgun and cooking merit badges; Matt Smith, Totin Chip and Fireman Chit badges; and Mike Heath, archery merit badge.

Also, Ben Miller, Mike Heath, and Matt Smith completed most of their Tenderfoot Scout rank requirements.

Devon O'Brien and Ronnie Schweiger moved along to Second Class Scout rank. Jason Carter and John Henkel earned the mile-swim badge by swimming 1,800 continuous yards in the camp pool.

Adults on the trip were Scoutmaster Butch LaWall and Assistant Scoutmasters August Severn, Bruce Henkel and John McCarty.

Henkel won the Camp Top Gun Award for the highest score on the rifle range and the Robin Hood Award for the highest score on the archery range.

The troop will resume its regular program Sept. 3.
