Tuesday Recap 10/30/18

Happy Halloween! We opened the meeting today as usual; a good bunch of kids. We reviewed the bowline this week with good success! This weeks activity was a teamwork exercise! We all grabbed a scout stave and got in a circle. Jay would say left or right and we had to follow. Even with the occasional stick to the head it was a fun night. We listened to Clayton, our Senior Patrol Leader, talk about the history and the hardships of Bristol. He showed us pictures of the dam, the sign, and the train station. To finish the night, we reviewed some basic scout knowledge in a game of Scout Jeopardy. The Apache patrol against the Sycamore Patrol  in a neck to neck race A fun and eventful night with lots of events planned for the rest of the year!

Until we meet again,

Camping at Fender’s Farm

September 8th and 9th, 2012

We had a great weekend – camping at Fender’s Farm!

It rained on us a little, but we didn’t let that stop us from having a great time.

Finding our way through the corn maze, riding a mechanical bull, jumping on an inflatable trampoline… it was non-stop fun!

2013 National Scout Jamboree

July 15 – 24, 2013


The Sequoyah Council is sending a contingent of two troops to the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.  Each troop will consist of 36 youths and 4 adult leaders.

  • What is the national jamboree? Imagine 50,000 Scouts, Venturers, volunteers, and staff from all over the country, all gathered together for one big celebration of Scouting. Held once every four years, the national jamboree is a chance to camp out with friends, meet new friends, try high-adventure activities, learn new skills, and enjoy the outdoors. Over 10 days, there are exhibits, stadium shows with entertainment, opportunities to work on merit badges — there’s something for everybody.
  • High adventure like you’ve never seen. Whitewater, climbing, zip lines, mountain biking, and much, much more. (Not to mention all of the things you’ve grown to love about the jamboree: patch trading, SCUBA, stadium shows, Technology Quest … who could ask for more?)
  • History created by you. This will be the first jamboree at its new permanent home – The Summit, in beautiful West Virginia – and you’ll be there for the grand opening.

A large number of scouts are expected to apply for participation.  The council is considering applications at this time.  Let us know ASAP if you are interested.
