Court of Honor celebrates achievement

Troop 35’s latest Court of Honor ceremony was a bit different than usual, thanks to the pandemic. Scouts wore masks, and instead of the scout handshake, you can see the “air handshake” in the photos below. Troop 35 celebrated the accomplishments of more than 20 scouts who collectively earned more than 70 rank advancements and merit badges over the past several months.

Scouts explore Boundary Waters

Scouts from Troop 35 camped and canoed their way through the Boundary Waters in Minnesota this summer. Northern Tier in Ely, MN is one of the Scouts BSA High Adventure bases. You can see what fun the scouts had in the photos and comments below.

Northern Tier was an experience of a lifetime. The things we saw and experienced together will be with me forever. I highly recommend that if anyone has the chance to go, they shouldn’t hesitate. It is one of a kind.

Troop 35 enjoys “camp-in”

While campsites are closed to groups, Troop 35 found a way to enjoy the outdoors by hosting a “camp-in.” Scouts pitched tents in their own backyards, cooked outside, and held a contest for the best-looking meal. They also got together at a park for some mask-wearing socially distanced games.
