Eagle Scouts of all ages are called to join together for an afternoon and evening of fellowship and information about Scouting's future. This event will include:
Camp Tour | Baiting Hollow is the Heart of Scouting in Suffolk County, where thousands of Scouts have made countless memories. The camp has had major upgrades and looks great. Take a tour with camp staff.
Skills Challenge | Can you still tie a bowline, shoot a bow and arrow, recall the history of the Scouting Movement, perform basic first aid, make a tripod? Just for fun we will see how well we are holding up with our basic Scouting skills.
Scouting Midway | Are you interested in opportunities to get back involved in Scouting? Representatives from all parts of the council will be sharing information about opportunities to help Scouting serve today's youth. Learn about Commissioner Service, NESA, Heritage Society, Venturing, Council Events, Merit Badge Counselor, Assistants to Units, and the Alumni Connection program.
