Let's go back to 2012, my freshman year. I was a typical teenage girl except there was something different about me, I was a Boy Scout. Not only was I a Boy Scout but I was the Vice President of Administration for my Crew. You're probably thinking to yourself how the heck did I get myself into that, you're probably wondering what made me so special to not only be in the Boy Scouts but to hold such an important position. Well I found out about the Venture Crew through my cousin and school, my cousin was in the crew and when I was a freshman she was diagnosed with cancer. When she shaved her head to beat the cancer the boys were so supportive and there for her that they shaved their heads as well, I knew I had to be apart of this. So I joined. I was very quite at the first meeting,
On Scout’s first day of school, she runs into trouble with the new teacher Miss Caroline. Scout takes the responsibility of informing the teacher that she has made a mistake with Walter Cunningham when he does not have lunch money. The teacher offers to loan him some money. Scout tells her that Walter will not take the money because he cannot pay it back. Miss Caroline punishes Scout.
My heart leapt in my throat- I did my best to try and regulate my breathing so I wouldn’t give away my position with massive, choking gulps of air. Closing my eyes, I tried to re-collect blissful memories, ones that were far away from this state of affairs. I couldn’t calm down; this was so bad- what was I going to do? His steps were getting closer; they were getting louder. I panicked, I panicked.
Let me start out my saying congratulations on being selected to keep your vigil. You are about to experience something that less than 100 people have experienced in the past 10 years within Unami. Another part about this experience is that the next few hours are time time for you to reflect on your scouting career and for all those who you have helped during it.
It was just an ordinary day when my mom asked me if I wanted to go to the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. Immediately I said yes. Not knowing what in the world a jamboree was, I asked my mom what it was. I was them able to realize that this trip was a trip of a lifetime.
Before I became a camp counselor, I attended counselor training for a few days. During these days we discussed how to deal with children that became homesick, upset, or angry. We talked about how to show kids how to be comfortable talking to God and praying. Since this was a church camp we discussed how we would teach the bible study every day of the week we counseled. After the training week I had to prepare many things on my own. I prepared games and crafts for my cabin of girls to participate in. I prepared myself mentally for the task I was about to attempt to complete. The day before the camp week started I arrived at the cabin to make it as comfortable and welcoming as it could be for the eight girls that would arrive the next day. My
I’m in the middle of my 24th year of Staff Training. I have spent an exponentially amount of time on this through the years. These young adults have come here to Camp Peniel to serve, and I want to arm them with the best material, deepest insights, greatest stories & all the ‘armour of God’ they can put on! These are ‘my people’ that I will pray over, love, and cry with and over through the years.
As a student of Saint Lawrence, any kid can be a steward to other people. They can serve others and assist them with their journey to become a more adept Catholic steward. I’m currently a boy scout right now in Troop 101. A boy scout can exemplify as being a steward. They aid other people and serve the nation on what they decided to establish. As a boy scout, there's one community service I associated with with my fellow troop members this year. The service was at Mount Saint Joseph Carmelite Monastery up in the hills. Nuns and priests needed people to assist them with clearing twigs and garbage in one of their fields, so the janitor doesn’t have to do too much work in there and just pick up the trash instead. Troop 101 was in charge of picking
In the summer of 2016, I was chosen to be a camp counselor for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Birmingham, AL. The camp was from June 29, 2016 to July 1, 2016. It was at Camp ASCCA in Alex CIty. In order to be selected, there was a lot of paperwork and interviews to be done. Each person selected to be a counselor was assigned to one child who suffered from a variety of muscular problems. Our job was to have our child to their designated activities on time, wake them up, get them dressed, and make sure they stayed fed and hydrated. The child I was assigned to could walk but she got extremely tired at times so, she wanted to use her wheelchair. The camp gave the children many opportunities to do things that they normally would not be allowed
At the time of my third Boy Scout summer camp I was becoming an older scout within the troop as most of the older members who used to be there had moved on and younger scouts were replacing them. Before going I was expecting my friend, Evan Marr, to be the Senior Patrol Leader for the week but his baseball team was more successful than expected and he could not go. I was expecting to be the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader for the weekend but I had been promoted at the last minute. I was 13, never lead a group of people and now I was responsible for a troop of fifteen to twenty people. I was thrown into the fire.
I used to work as the senior camp counselor of Raise Leaders Camp of Tae Kwon Do where I would have daily interactions with the youth campers and I set the example of how to be a leader to junior camp counselors. My responsibilities included supervising the campers, planning out field trips, and dealing with any conflicts that arose. Through this experience, I learned crucial leadership skills such as how to cooperate with fellow team members how to communicate to children in a manner they would understand and respect me at the same time. Moreover, I always made sure the campers had everything they needed and if they ever needed any help with a problem or just someone to talk to then they could always come to me.
Good Evening, Miss Scout. It has been awhile since I have been able to speak to you. Ever since you moved out of Maycomb County a few years ago, things have been different. The kind of independence and courage that you and your brother Jem occupied is now existent. Maycomb County has become a place of equality, thanks to you, Jem, and Atticus. The Niggers, such as Tom Robinson’s family, now live as freely as a bird, and without fear. Everyone here has started to stand up for what they believe in, and stand up for what is correct. It is with my pleasure to be able to finally say that everyone here in Maycomb county has an opinion of life on their own, and the people firmly stick with that belief. The kind of respect the people
In the 2nd grade I made one of the most influential decision’s in my life, to become a Cub Scout of Pack 920. In Cub Scouts I learned basic skills of character and service. When I was in fifth grade I crossed over into Boy Scouts Troop 87. Boy Scouts taught me how to improve my character and leadership skills. Boy Scouts has given me many opportunities to volunteer in my community. Boy Scouts has given me the necessary skills to be an effective member of National Junior Honor Society.
