Year

The Blue and Gold Banquet celebrates the anniversary of the founding of the BSA on February 8th, 1910. We celebrate with a Pack dinner and recognize achievement by handing out earned badges or rank. The banquet also includes the Arrow of Light Ceremony where 5th grades that have earned the Arrow of Light cross in to Scouts BSA and are received by their new Troop.

Troop 32 participates in a week-long summer camp ever year. We have a number of camps in the area that we rotate through to enjoy a variety of differences in program approach, and a change in scenery. Pictures below highlight the annual experience.

Doing service projects together is one way that Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do their best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While they’re giving service, they’re learning to work together with others to do something that’s good for their community.

Service projects may help the natural world, the community, or the chartered organization. Below are pictures from some of the service projects our Troops and Pack have participated in, though there are a lot more service projects and activities that are not included below.
