Carey’s Castle Hike – 5/14/2011

Troop 262 Scouts, Kurtis V, Chris C, Matthew B and Armand C (along with Mr. Connolly and Mr. Philbrook as leaders) completed the 10 mile round trip hike to Carey’s Castle in the Joshua Tree National Park on May 14th. This earned them one of five required 10 mile hikes for their Hiking Merit Badge and Kurtis and Armand completed their hiking requirements for 2nd Class badge. This challenging hike was greatly enjoyed by all and was an exciting adventure. Best part of the hike according to a majority of the Scouts was the boulder scrambling we had to do in order to hike up and down the rocky canyon. Great job to all the Scouts!

Robotics Merit Badge

Slowly, the Boy Scouts have developed into a real training ground for budding scientists and engineers. Of the 126 current merit badges offered by the Boy Scouts of America, 31 of them fit under the STEM umbrella. But it’s the newest badge that is generating a lot of interest. This week, the BSA introduced the robotics merit badge, an ambitious set of requirements that really explores robotics as both a hobby and a career.
