Kempson earns Eagle award
Updated: October 28, 2014 - 11:08 am

DJ Kempson, of Boy Scout Troop 17, earned his Eagle award on Aug. 26. His project was to improve parts of the Arizona CAP Trail. The CAP trail runs along the CAP canal throughout the state. This trail has multiple recreational uses, which benefit joggers, walkers and bicyclists. The trail was in desperate need of repair, which DJ discovered while hiking the trail with his troop back in March. In July, he lead volunteers to create new trails and install 18 sign posts over a two-day period. DJ and his family recently moved to Brisbane, Australia, but they plan to move back to Ahwatukee in three to five years. DJ is only 14 years old, and recently joined a Venture Crew in Brisbane to continue his scouting career. He is looking forward to earning the National Medal for Outdoor Achievement, which is awarded to scouts who have exemplary knowledge and experience in performing high-level outdoor activities. He has earned two of the three segments required already and looks forward to earning the last and most difficult one in Australia.
