Scouting – Just Try It, See What You Get Out Of It!
Vaughn Golden, Eagle Scout with Troop 241 says his Scouting journey began in first grade when the Scouts came to his school to talk about Cub Scouts. He joined because it sounded like a lot of fun and never left Scouting. He tells Brian Beddow, Hawk Mountain Council Field Director, some of his favorite memories are the adventure opportunities.
Lifelong friendships were forged during a 12 day backpacking trip when Mother Nature left them in some tricky predicaments. Vaughn values the skills he learned in Scouting from raising funds which taught him financial planning and budgeting to leadership skills he learned as a youth leader and now an adult volunteer. As a member of the Order of The Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society, Vaughn continues to enjoy the volunteer hours he spends at camp giving back to younger Scouts.
