I had been backpacking before, but when I had heard of Philmont, a scout camp out in New Mexico, I was exceptionally excited. My crew and I had picked a trek we were going on, and then we trained. I trained for four to five months before the hike. My dad and I 5 other scouts were doing the trek which would go to Baldy Mt. and The Tooth of Time.
He spent one night in jail, and was then transferred to live at a reform school, the Colored Waif’s Home for Boys. Little did Louis know, that this would be a blessing in disguise. There he learned to play the cornet. Soon after, he was “appointed leader of the school band, which often paraded and performed in and around the city.” (Anderson, Paragraph 4) At age sixteen, Armstrong was released from Waif’s Home and “was sent to live with his father.” (Brown, Page 22) However, he quickly went back to living with his mother and sister. During this time, he “obtained his first job as a professional musician.” (Anderson, Paragraph 5) “Armstrong’s reputation as a musician continued to grow,” (Biography.com, Paragraph 7) and he soon was mentored by another local cornet player, King Oliver.
After the ceremony, one of the camp counselors told me the reason why I received the award. It was my first year at the Youth Leadership Academy (YLA), which is run by the Mahwah Police Department. Throughout the week, the campers
The Boy Scouts of America teaching youth loyalty, kindness, being trustworthy, cheerful, brave, and clean since 1910. Watching the youth in my pack has inspired me so much and made me a better person. Watching so many children and young adults grill from working hand-in-hand with each other. Showing the world every day that innocent young children can impact the world in a positive manner if they are taught to do so. Being in a military pack in the city of Las Vegas melting pot of many cultures we must learn to live with each other.
She talked about her journey to a Lumber Camp with her best friend Rena and their great epics. I learned what summer was like for her in that camp. All things I was never told about when she was still alive. At her memorial, my family did what all families do, sit in a circle and talk about our missing loved one. I learned about her adult life in Tupper Lake.
Johnson was born in Oregon, WA and lived there until he was four. Due to his father's unexpected and utter dismissal from the family, he spent the rest of his childhood and adolescents growing up in Idaho.

According to the AllTrails website, "Lucky Peak Loop is a 13.3-mile loop trail located near Boise, ID.
Matt and I first met July 19, 2013 in Galesburg, IL at the local YMCA, which was graciously hosting us that evening on our journey across the country. Matt and I were both interns for the Million Dollar Marathon, a cross-country run that was raising funds and awareness for Above & Beyond Cancer. I had been on the road with the crew for just over a month and the 19th marked Matt’s first time meeting most of us. My first impression of Matt was that he was arrogant. I didn’t realize at the time, how intimidating it must have been to come into a close-knit group as an outsider.
As the TIT, I wanted to share with other kids the same experiences that I had as a camper. My experiences at this camp became cyclical, as I was fortunate enough to staff a similar fifteen-day canoe trip. Like my friends and me several years ago, the campers struggled during the first couple of days as they were adjusting to the tripping lifestyle. I vividly remember one of my campers, Ben “Marv” Canvasser stuck up to his shoulders in the mud. I thought, oh man, this is funny!
I came to this sacred when I was only nine years old. I like to think of myself as a brave nine-year-old for packing up my trunk and heading into the woods for ten days with my brother when I had never for a prolonged period of time been away from my parents. At Belknap, making friends is one of the easiest things ever. Yet, these friends as the years go on seem to disappear in a whisper. Unfortunately, at camp, you are only allowed to go from age nine to sixteen and after your last summer,

Article: What may have started as a dream day at camp, quickly turned sour after parents discovered photos of their children posing with Hooters girls at Cub Scout camp.

The Carolina Day Key Middle School went on an overnight in September 2015 at a place called Camp Timberlake for Boys. All of us got to know each other well. On our last day a few of our canoes flipped over while on the French Broad River. One of them was Lacy, Aubrey and Mr. Flamini’s canoe. Lacy and Aubrey’s canoe flipped over when Mr. Flamini tried to clamber in.
In my junior year of high school, I led the planning, design, and construction of a boardwalk trail over community wetlands. Of the numerous collaborative efforts Scouting has afforded me, this Eagle Scout Service Project was the most complex and gratifying.

One situation where I learned to be adaptable and draw on the strengths of others ideas was when building the components of the boardwalk.
