2024-01-21: Bert Adams Campout

Last weekend, Troop 2319 went cold weather camping at Bert Adam’s Scout Camp. We had lots of fun exploring in the woods, playing games, and making ropes. Everybody enjoyed the warm fire and great food in the freezing cold weather. We look forward to our next hopefully warmer camp out! — Troop Historian Evan B.

2023-12-02: Escalade

We kept our tradition alive with our annual lock in at Escalade, and boy what a fun night! Scouts were climbing, racing, playing games, & of course snacking until far later than I think several of our adults had hoped. Escalade is definitely always a highlight for our scouts and I’m sure we’ll be back again next year! Full Photo Album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/m64GFxAXnPDoxvsj8

2023-10-15: Providence Canyon

Last weekend, the troop headed south of Atlanta to Providence Canyon and wow, what a cool place!! We got there pretty late and setup in the dark, but when the sun rose on Saturday, it was clear just how amazing this place is. We hiked the rim and down into the canyon, learned a ton about how it formed, and even had some time in the afternoon to play games and relax. Word don’t do it justice, take a look at the highlights and head to the link to see all the amazing pictures from this campout. Photo Album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ULE7YMyA72SsuGUP7  

Court of Honor

2023-08: Court of Honor

This past Monday, we held our August Court of Honor and it was a big one! This week, we officially recognized and awarded, 45 Rank Advancements, 3 National Outdoor Achievement Camping segment, 8 National Outdoor Award Gold Devices, a Recruiter Strip, 3 Triple Crowns, and 199 Merit Badges! We also recognized our newest OA Ordeal & Brotherhood Members and the fact that we have the most 2023 Dues Paid OA Members of any troop in the entire Atlanta Area Council!   All of this has been achieved in just the past 6 months and really goes to show that our scouts never stop moving forwards. They are always working on that next rank, next merit badge, or award. This was an amazing Court of Honor, to all scouts, keep up the good work!   Full Photo Album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/UUsgJUBJNz4gqYn46

2023-08-19: More Trail Cooking

Not a weekend goes by that our scouts aren’t out practicing their scout skills! This past weekend several scouts headed out for a quick hike at Red Top Mountain to work on their Trail Cooking for the Cooking Merit Badge. Some lessons were definitely learned about portion sizing, following instruction & planning ahead, and the importance of repackaging food to reduce waste and weight. All said, their meals all looked pretty tasty and we couldn’t have asked for better weather on Saturday morning.

2023-08-13: Ocoee Weekend

For our August campout the troop went to Woodruff for White Water Rafting.  Scouts seemed to have an absolutely awesome time Whitewater Rafting on the Ocoee River! While older scouts were busy on the river, two leaders lead our first year scouts in some tree top ziplines! While the weather was hot the water felt refreshing.  Some of our first year scouts stayed back at camp and played manhunt. Grubmasters Roman, Brantley, Evan, Ryan, Abhinav made some delicious meals.  Everyone had a great weekend! — Mitchell A. Troop Historian Photo Album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/JNYPBepBc6U81MTP8

2023-06-03: Addison Elementary Bridge Repair

We’re right in that sweet spot between school & summer camp when most folks are out of town, so huge shout out and thank you to all those who helped with the Addison Elementary School Bridge Repair Service Project on Saturday. It wasn’t an Eagle Project, just something the troop offered to take on. We replaced rotten and unsafe parts of the bridge and fence railings, as well as added a few more structural braces to provide a little bit more stability to the bridge. Thank you Mr. Kerns for planning and organizing this awesome project!   *And also thank you Mike & Cole W. who were at the project for nearly the entire time, but had to head out mere minutes before a group picture was taken at the end (sorry!)   Full Photo Album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/SF6estuBdpRKWXXh6
