Joe with Troop 42, Eagle Ceremony

Joe was awarded the rank of Eagle this weekend by Troop 42, White Lake, Michigan.

Joe and Mr. Mike McCoy June 2011

In Troop 42 the boys cook and invite the adult leaders as guests for meals.  Fuel is wood or charcoal, no gas stoves except for back packing.  On night hikes we hike by natural light only.  Flashlights stay in pockets for emergency use only.  No bright lights in camp, old fashioned oil lamps and firelight only.  Fires are not for warmth, we dress correctly to stay warm.  No cotton clothes in cold weather.  The boys cleanup the campsites and leave it cleaner than they found it.  Fires are put out with copious amounts of water, ashes are stirred then drowned again.  And on weekend camp-outs, every Sunday about 10,  we have church.  This is the program that Joe could not get enough of.
