Cam Walter Eagle Project

Posted on Dec 7 2019 - 6:28pm

My project is rebuilding a paver pathway at Durham's garden. 

The current path is really beaten up, uneven and weeds throughout. 

I plan to have it on December 15th, from 12 pm-4pm 

I'd like to have 6 scouts to help me with the project, and all they need to bring are work gloves and a water bottle. 

Please Email Cam at camwalter@troop928.org if you plan on helping with his project.

January’s campout is going to take us to three different great locations.

Next, we will go to Sea World in San Antonio where we will have dinner and take a behind the scene tour of the park during the evening. Our Saturday tour will end at the shark enclosure where we will spend the night on the floor in front of the shark tanks. Sunday we will get up early and learn about the Bottlenose dolphins, enjoy a breakfast and then feed the Sea Lions and touch the Stingrays. We will depart Sea World and then travel to Corpus Christi for lunch before go aboard the USS Lexington where you will be able to tour this historic Aircraft Carrier, go on a history scavenger hunt and spend the night in the crew bunks. The USS Lexington now has two escape rooms that are available for a $35.00 per person admission. These need to be booked 30 days before our arrival. If you are interested in this adventure, please go to the separate USS Lexington Escape room sign up page on the troop website.
