Troop 35 scouts enjoy high adventure at Sea Base

Scouts from Troop 35 landed in Florida this week, and they’ve been having a blast. They’ve explored Key West, plus they’ve experienced snorkeling, sailing, paddle boarding and fishing. More adventures await at Sea Base, but we wanted to share these photos they sent from the southernmost point of the continental United States.

Congratulations to Troop 35’s newest Eagle

Way to go, Michael Amen! You are now among the elite of the elite in scouting.

Earning Eagle is such a big deal for me. It’s something that I’ve been going for for most of my life.

Michael Amen, Troop 35 Eagle Scout

Troop 35 has always been accepting and helpful to me. It is a great group of people to help you along your journey.

Michael’s advice to younger scouts? He recommends scouts work on advancement and merit badges before high school because time gets tight.

Congratulations, Michael!
