Former Assistant Scoutmaster and current Committee Member Kavi Pannu was in Scouting Magazine, as he was interviewed on his work helping to bring about the Sikh Religious Award! A few days later, he was on the BSA National Instagram page as well.

Spring Backpacking on the AT

In April, Magnus did 54 miles from the border with Shenandoah National Park up to the AT Conservancy Headquarters in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. His crew left his on day 1, but he fought on until the end anyway. Nice job!

10 Commandments Hike

Council event held in Haddonfield where Scouts from Troops and Packs all over South Jersey hike between various houses of worship to learn a little bit about them.

Assateague Island and Chincoteague Island – Maryland and Virginia

Fun trip! We camped on the beach at Assateague Island National Seashore, where some of the tents blew away (some of the tents ALWAYS blow away). On Saturday, we drove down to Chincoteague Island in Virginia, where we went in the museum to visit Misty, hiked to and climbed the lighthouse, saw some interesting birds at the nature center, and spotted a bunch of wild horses on a hike through the backwater marshes. Then it was back to Maryland for dinner and more horses.

Sunday, horses came right through camp and we headed back to Jersey.

Meeting with interesting topic

As Scoutmaster, its sometimes best not to ask too many questions.

Reviewing afterwards, this was apparently a popular meeting, despite no one bringing a bear suit.

As I said, as Scoutmaster, its sometimes best not to ask too many questions.

Rodney – Northeast, MD – February

Rodney, where camping in February means 80 degree temperatures and then a massive thunder shower. Seriously.
