  • What a Great Week at Camp Bowman
    A story of Calab last week at camp as a Scout.

     That is what I thought at the beginning of the week, but by the end I could not have been more wrong.  This year at Goshen went by, in my opinion, way too fast.   Whether I was down at the archery range or at the waterfront, I was having fun.  But I am already getting ahead of myself; let’s start with the first day, Saturday.  We all had to endure through the 4 hour drive to get there but after we got there we stayed in site 6, named after one of our own Eagle Scouts, Camp Haynes.  The second day was the start of afternoon classes wherein I went down to Archery and Welding also on this day was the staff’s welcoming campfire in which they do a handful of funny skits and sing some nice songs.  Monday was the start of everyone having to go to all of their classes’ morning and afternoon, this day while fun but was a tad uneventful.  Tuesday however was when I really started to enjoy my time whether it was because I had tons of fun down at archery or it was because my welding teacher was very funny.  Wednesday was the day of the camp wide event wherein all scouts were going to play tug of war, ships and sailors, a more complex Simon says, and a stretcher race; however this was, sadly, cancelled due to rain.  Thursday was the last day for all afternoon classes so all afternoon teachers were a bit rushed, especially my welding teacher who was really rushed to do some of the requirements that could not be done the day before due to lightning.  Friday the last day before we all had to, sadly, leave was the day of the Water Carnival, wherein we did several events including an egg hunt in the water, an oar-less rowboat race, sands fortress building, an egg toss, a canoe race, and a watermelon fight wherein the staff took a greased up watermelon and threw it into the lake and two scouts from each troop had to get it back to the dock.  Also taking place on this day was the Scoutmaster SPL shoot wherein the leader and the senior patrol leader from each troop go down for a friendly competition.  Also on Friday eight volunteers from Troop 1575 did a wonderful flag ceremony that was and I quote “Went off flawlessly.”  As a final farewell the staff put together another campfire with another bunch of funny skits and the like.  Saturday we all woke up groggily at about 5:00 in the morning where we were inspected by camp staff to make sure it was cleaner than when we got there, we had our breakfast and we said farewell to Goshen.  As this was my final year as a scout at Goshen I am extremely glad that I went. It was fun as the scout leader because I was in charge of making sure everything went okay, and I would say that everything went all right and I if I had a choice I would be the Senior Patrol Leader once

    Troop’s 1575 Venture Crew Takes on Wild and Wonderful West Virginia
By Ryan B.

"West Virginia: Wild and Wonderful" is exactly what Troop 1575’S Venture Patrol experienced from June 19th-June 23rd. We got to learn about all the things this state had to offer.

        On our first official day, we enjoyed white water canoeing. The Greenbrier River was perfect for this, its shallow waters make for perfect white water canoeing. We twisted and turned (and even turned over!) as we canoed ten miles. On the calmer parts of the river, we saw the beautiful, majestic mountains and forests this state had to offer.

        Zip-lining was also fun. After experiencing West Virginia by water, why not by air? This endeavor was quite enjoyable to anyone who wasn't deathly afraid of heights. Through the thirty or so zip-lines and sky bridges we learned a lot about native plants, the history of West Virginia, and some very funny jokes.

        Troop 1575 searched for a final thrill before we left for home, and we got it at white water rafting on the New River. We followed commands like "hunker down" and "paddle forward". White water rafting is much more extreme compared to white water canoeing, and you get high in the air just like zip-lining. But, on the calm parts of the river we floated in our life jackets awaiting another rapid.

        Other than thrills, we experienced the highest bridge in America in use. We also hugged a tree older than America itself. The thrills weren't the only reason we came here, the landscape was also a big component.

        Overall, we had a lot of fun, whether it was by air or by sea. West Virginia wasn't just a place to get a thrill, but a place to bond with fellow troop mates.

Antietam Battlefield Illumination 2014

Our Troop has been help with the illumination of Antietam for 25 Years. Over the 25 year we have many great experiences and at time very cold weather to endure.  But is all worthwhile when you do the drive through of the battle in the evening.  It is hard to believe for every candle that was set out represent a Soldier that fell or was missing on action.
