Boy Scout Troop 1043 received funds to purchase quality backpacks to use for hiking and camping. The Troop's Scouts enjoyed learning new skills and using the backpacks for hiking on beautiful trails around the area. As their skills and abilities grow with continued use of the packs they hope to one day plan and execute a major High Adventure trip that might take them to locations such as Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico or maybe even the Grand Canyon in Arizona! They are definitely thinking big and the boys love it! The Scouts are learning to care for and maintain all of our equipment and are held accountable for the packs that they are assigned to use. Troop 1043 continues to serve the Highland Area Community with cheerful service. Because of the generous grant Troop 1043 can continue to promote it’s excellent program for developing boys into outstanding young men and leaders for Our Community.
