The Boy Scouts decide which events they will do every year, and they are responsible for each outing’s planning, which builds great leadership skills for these future young men. Troop 17 has more fun outings planned for the remainder of the school year: a wilderness camp out, a biking camp out and a cooking competition camp out.

We are a month into summer vacation, have you heard the dreaded “I’m bored” phrase yet?

When most men hit their 30’s, something changes (besides a receding hairline). It is almost as if men are destined to finally obtain that gut that they were meant to have. A gut signifying a real man. One who is now married with kids, works hard, and doesn’t have time to exercise anymore like he did when he was younger. And a healthy diet? A man is hungry and stressed and a salad just isn’t going to cut it. You don’t have to be that guy. Because that guy won’t be very happy when he gets into his 50’s and 60’s, if he makes it there at all. If you are over 30, think about your male friends and family members who are your age.

Have you fallen into this trap and become complacent with it?
