Successful Eagle Court of Honor!

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Eagle Court of Honor on May 4 such a success!  Special thank you to Lodge 548 – Loyal Order of Moose (Lindenwold) for hosting us and Mr. Dan MacDonnell for graciously agreeing to be our guest speaker!  Congrats again to Greg, Nick, and Ethan!

Newest Eagle Scout – Ethan Z.!

Congrats to Ethan for passing his Eagle Scout Board of Review tonight!

Ethan’s project was refurbishing a dog walk trail, fixing a cemetery fence, and building a bench at the Animal Welfare in Voorhees.  For those that missed the project, check out the Trip Log for August 2013!

Ethan becomes Troop 48’s 114th Eagle Scout.

We’re all very proud of your accomplishment Ethan!

Summer Trip deposits due this Wednesday!

Lovely Shenandoah National Park


The summer trip fast approaches – Saturday, August 3 to Friday, August 9! $100 deposit is due by Wednesday, June 26! The balance of payment ($130 for a total of $230) is due by August 1! Our annual summer trip is the highlight of our year, and has been the best part of Scouting for generations of Troop 48ers. Why should your Scout be going? Action, adventure, and fun!

What will all the Scouts be doing? – a hike up the mountain overlooking the camp, tubing down the Shenandoah River, visiting Harper’s Ferry National Historic Site, and more!

What will base camp be doing in addition to all that? – swimming, checking out the beautiful waterfalls and overlooks of Shenandoah National Park, caving for half a day, all day rock climbing with a guide, and a gorgeous hike through the national park!

We’ll also have a backpacking crew trekking through some of the most beautiful land in the East for four lovely days!

All inclusive – food, campsite, all activities – $230. Dirt cheap!

If you family has concerns about payments, please talk to Mike McCormick (Scoutmaster) or Bob Faust (Treasurer). Payment plans, discounts, and/or scholarships will be arranged. Troop 48 firmly believes that no Scout should ever miss out on the Scouting experience due to financial concerns, all you have to do is talk to us.
