TROOP 429 ARRIVES CAMP!
Word has reached us from the outter borders of Georgia that Troop 429 reached the base camp on Tuesday. Further communication from the scoutmaster on Thursday says ALL campers will successfully complete their merit badges and assigned projects. More importantly...scouts are having a blast!
Two scouts and an adult leader from troop 429 participated in the first ever National Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia for 12 days in July. Amongst the activities at the Summit were zipline, rock climbing, scuba, BMX biking, a variety of shooting sports, whitewater rafting, fireworks, arena shows, and a ton of other adventures. Pictured here are scouts Richy D. and Michael F. at one of the shakedown campouts.
While attending the Jamboree, Richy and Michael participated in a service project improving trails at the Greenbriar State Forest, and each of them earned a "Yoda" award for troop leadership. The participants joined in with 30,000 scouts and leaders from all over the U.S. and the world. The Jamboree takes place every four years.
Boy Scout Troop 429 is located in Daytona Beach, Florida. We meet at the Daytona Beach Drive-in Christian Church, awesomely located on the beachside between the Atlantic Ocean and the intercoastal waterway.

“We must move forward by focusing on what unites us: our belief that the Boy Scouts of America is the finest organization in the world for building character while teaching boys and young men to meet and overcome challenges, to cheerfully serve others, and to live lives based on the principles of the Scout Oath and Law.”
