Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life

2016's Awesome Trip!
Washington D.C.

Troop 208 went to the Nations Capitol this year. It was another awesome trip! Scouts got to see the Monuments and Memorials located on the National Mall, National Law Enforcement Memorial, Smithsonian American History Museum, Smithsonian Natural History Museum, National Air and Space Museum, the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles, and the National Zoo.
Scouts also visited Fords Theater and the Petersen House- where President Lincoln died from his wound. We also visited the NRA Firearms Museum in Virginia.
Scouts enjoyed eating at Jakeys Cafe in Chinatown - where they recovered from 100 degree heat and ate their fill of great Chinese food! Photos will be posted soon - check back.

Troop 208 is a year round troop and camps every month. Past campouts have focused on river canoe camping, wilderness survival, hiking, and orienteering. Each summer we attend either a week-long scout summer camp or do a high adventure trip.

Merit Badges

Merit badges are awards earned by youth members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), based on activities within an area of study by completing a list of periodically updated requirements. The purpose of the merit badge program is to allow Scouts to examine subjects to determine if they would like to further pursue them as a career or a vocation.
