Troop 2319 had a very wet weekend up at Chickamauga Battlefield, but we made it work anyways! Scouts worked on the Cit. in the Nation Merit Badge, played card games, and the first year scouts even got a 5 mile hike in in between the showers! Some scouts got a little wetter than others, but with proper rain gear and canopies, we all were able to stay fairly dry.
This weekend troop 2319 went to Wildlife Action center for the new scout camp out. This helped the new scouts earn the First Aid merit badge and get to know the other scouts. We just had a scout transfer to our unit this past Monday and he was already out camping and having a good time! We also had a second visiting new scout come out camping with us. We played games like civilization and manhunt, while the grub masters Cavin and William cooked things like pasta and quesadillas. The weather was great and it made for a great weekend!
There was a great turn out for the second work day for Scoprio’s Eagle Project. It was a little cold and a little damp, but we all made it through and got a lot of work done. Thank you to everyone who helped!

Our charter organization, Unity North Atlanta, hosted their annual planning meeting after their service today. Between their service and planning meeting, Troop 2319 volunteered to help out by providing and serving lunch as well as some setup and tear down. Unity North was very grateful for the help and it was a great example for how our troop is working to strengthen our relationship with our fantastic charter organization.
The weekend of March 22-24 Troop 2319 participated in Scout Challenge at Bert Adams scout Camp. This was a council wide event in which scouts participated in challenges and games including GaGa Ball, Human Foosball, Giant Angry Birds, Archery, and Basketball. We lucked out with the weather, it was nice and sunny all weekend. Overall, all the scouts had a great time.
We had a fantastic turn out at our Troop Court of Honor yesterday, which was great because the scouts have been working really hard on new Merit Badges and Rank Advancement over the last few months. Even though it has only bee three months since our last Court of Honor in December, scouts completed and were awarded 19 Rank Advancements and over 30 Merit Badges! Great job guys, that’s a huge achievement. We also were lucky enough have our Unit Commissioner, Mike Lotz, in attendance who was able to award us with our Gold Journey to Excellence 2018 ribbon for the troop flag. Lastly, we were lucky enough to share in the celebration of Crew 2319 with the induction of their founding members. It’s been a busy couple of months and we’re not slowing down. Scout Challenge is right around and with 30 scout and adults registered from our troop, it is sure to be great camp out. Stay tuned for more updates and click below to see all the pictures from our latest COH.
Troop 2319 was very busy this past weekend. We had scouts in 3 different locations and two different state, a first for our Troop! We had several of our older more experienced scouters out hiking, getting closer to earning the Backpacking Merit Badge with each step and the bulk of the rest of the scouts went dump camping at Camp Westin on Lake Allatoona. We even had several of our Inaugural Crossovers with us. That’s right, they crossed over into Boy Scouts on Thursday and came out camping with us on Cold Weather Camp Out the very next day. Way to go! We even had a scout in Alabama attending a Leave No Trace Training day and we’re excited for him to bring his new and refreshed knowledge back to the troop. check out some pictures of the Backpacking and Cold Weather Camping weekends below.
We had a great time tonight, helping Crossover several new scouts from Pack 1714 to Troop 2319. We’re glad you chose our troop and are looking forward to seeing you all at our troop meetings on Monday nights at 7:30 and are especially happy that some of you have opted to join us on our next troop camp out tomorrow! Great Job everyone.
On 2/3/19 our Troop 2319 celebrated a very special Scout Sunday service with our Chartered Org Unity North Atlanta. The Troop assisted with the service providing a color guard, opening prayer, and shared the Scout Oath & Law with the congregation. After the service we gathered for fellowship with the members of Unity and enjoyed great conversations about scouting! Check out some of the pictures from the event.
