Pack 540 Webelos 1’s and 2’s took advantage of our nice weather to “put the outing back in scouting”. They hit the beach at The Cove in Seaside for some early evening clamming. They may not have dug a lot of clams…but they had a lot of fun.

Local Eagle Scout Joins Other Eagle Scouts as They Rode Across the Country This Summer

ESCAA

This summer a group of Eagle Scouts Biked across the country. Local Eagle Scout Bryce Nurding joined them on their journey through Colorado. You can find him in some of the photos in an awesome slide show on the Boys Life website at http://boyslife.org/about-scouts/scouting-around/137270/it-was-a-busy-summer-for-these-cycling-eagle-scouts/

During the summer of 2013, another group of Scouts biked across the country. They departed from Havre de Grace, MD and completed their journey in Seaside, OR. Bryce received a last minute email about their arrival and met up with the group at McDonalds in Astoria. He joined them for their last leg to the waters edge on Broadway in Seaside. (http://www.lucky13biketrip.com/)

After making connections with that group, Bryce was inspired to put a lot of leg work into starting a new Crew in Astoria, Crew 255, chartered by the American Legion.

Bryce is now working very hard to organize a cross country ride for Crew 255. They will be raising money for Operation Comfort Warrior. You can follow their progress  at https://www.facebook.com/biketrip2015tonewyork and http://www.biketripamerica.com

Recently Bryce contacted the person who had let him know about the Lucky 13 Bike Trip. It seems that one little email had a domino effect. Of his experience riding with the Eagle Scouts this summer Bryce said ” I cannot BEGIN to describe what an adventure it was riding with them. They are the reason I now know how to put this trip together.”

This is a good example of how even the little things you do can inspire others to do great things.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs. From archery to welding, Scouts can’t help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities.

To support this initiative, the BSA developed the Nova Awards program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts.

Fostering a strong STEM education is our best opportunity to boost the spirit of innovation. It’s what we need to help ensure this country continues on a prosperous and secure journey. STEM literacy is also critical because it has a profound and growing impact on our day-to-day lives. Nature, space exploration, and any STEM-related interest reveals to us the beauty and power of the world we inhabit.
