Congrats to Tim Smith for earning his Eagle Scout rank back the end of February. For his project, Tim resurfaced the Red Lake Trail at Batsto in Wharton State Forest. He also had a great run in Troop 48, including being one of the scouts who went to Washington State last summer.
Tim becomes our 120th Eagle Scout! Congrats again Tim!
Who has six thumbs and made the front page of The Berlin Sun in February? Troop 48 did, or at least one of our patrols. Fame and fortune, here we co… I mean, great job guys!
Thank you to Kristin over at the Sun for such a great article on the Klondike Derby!
It is with great pleasure that I announce the return of the pictures archive to the website. With thousands on thousands of photographs (just around 310GB) spanning the fifty years plus years the troop has been around, this has been no small task. I hope everyone finds the new setup relatively error free and easy to use.
Friendly reminder – no regular meeting this Wednesday! Instead, we’ll be at Elite Climbing at 67 Old Kings Highway, Maple Shade, NJ 08052 from 7 PM to 9 PM!
Cost for 5 to 9 climbers is $20, so please bring $20 in cash or a check made out to Troop 48. If we get more than that, then the cost per Scout will go down.
All climbers (Scouts or adults) should bring a signed wavier:
If you plan on attending and climbing, please let Paul know – firstname.lastname@example.org
See you Wednesday!
Congrats to the Phoenix Patrol – John, Stephen, and Magnus – for winning the 2017 White Horse District Klondike Derby! They beat out 25 other patrols from 18 other Troops from all over Camden County.
The Beaver Patrol also took a major step up in the standings from last year, which was great.
Overall, it was a fun day for all involved! Big thank you to all the adults from the White Horse District who made it such a great day!
We also had a great write up on the event in The Berlin Sun. Thanks to that fine paper for coming out to the Klondike!
Troop 48 is for all boys aged 11 to 17 (or Arrow of Light Scouts aged 10 and older who have finished the Arrow of Light Award). You don’t need to have any Scouting experience. You don’t need to be from Berlin (we have scouts from Berlin, Voorhees, Pine Hill, Barrington, and other area towns). You just need to have a spirit of adventure!
Joining is easy, just come check us out (risk free!) at a meeting at “the shed” at Holy Communion Lutheran Church (442 South Route 73 Berlin, NJ 08009). The boy can go get his hands dirty with the other Scouts. The parent can ask as many questions as their heart desires.
For more info, contact Scoutmaster Mike McCormick at email@example.com or call him at 856-287-2155!
Welcome to the latest, and hopefully, greatest iteration of the Troop’s website. The fan favorite photo section will be forthcoming soon as I go through and manually add our massive archive of photos to the new platform (if it makes you feel better, I am all the way through 2008 from 1964).
The calendar section will be added shortly as well.
Please let me know if you find things that are out of place (such as non-function newsletter links).
