The Boy Scouts are about developing tomorrow’s leaders. Just ask the first seven astronauts, or check out this list- Famous Boy Scouts, or, ask a community leader or business owner, chances are they were a Boy Scout, at one time, some even made it to Eagle.
Every summer, Troop 35 sends developing leaders to National Youth Leader Training (NYLT) at Thunderbird near Rochelle, Illinois. It is a seven-day week filled with intense training and learning where scouts experience the patrol method firsthand. This year’s scouts are Chris and Will. The training provides scouts the experience of learning while doing and then bringing back the learning to the troop. Previous NYLT attendees have gone on to be Senior Patrol Leaders, Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders, and Patrol leaders as well as attain the Eagle Scout rank. Wish them well.
Check out last year’s group – Jesse, Noah, William, Joey, Sebastian, and Jonah click here!
Will and Chris – NYLT 2013, all ready to go!

High Adventure Florida Sea Base
High Adventure National Jamboree
Troop 35 has a busy summer planned!
A crew of 8 heads to The High Adventure Florida Sea Base Sunday, June 9th. The Scouts will spend a glorious week in the Florida Keys on a scuba adventure. The Scouts are all scuba certified and will spend the week scuba diving in the pristine waters of the Florida Keys.
Next up will be the Troop’s week of summer camp at Tesomas Scout Camp in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. A week of learning Scouting skills, advancements and merit badges will go along with camping in the northwoods and a week of fun, sun, water, shooting and friendship. Oh, yea, don’t forget slushies! We all can’t wait to hear the stories upon their return! Stay tuned for Blog updates.
In July, another Troop 35 contingent will spend 10 days at the National Jamboree at The Summit Bechtel Scout Reservation in West Virginia. The Summit is the newest High Adventure Base for the Boy Scouts. The days at Summit will be spent biking, hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, enjoying the great outdoors and meeting Scouts from all over the country. Jamboree is the Premier Scouting gathering in the U.S. held every four years.
Remember, a Scout is Thrifty! The fine young Scouts attending the High Adventure Trips this summer have sold lots and lots of wreaths to pay their own way. When you listen to their stories upon their return, make sure you ask about how Wreath Sales funded their adventures! It all started with a knock on a door! Opportunity truly does knock (or rings the doorbell)!
