Troop 50 took shelter this past weekend at the Forest Ecology Preserve, where Scouts developed and put into practice the wilderness survival skills they learned during the past two troop meetings.
After creating their shelters, which included a combination of natural and fabricated materials, the troop’s youth leadership led sessions on fire building, orienteering and signaling.

On Sunday, the troop held a Scouts’ Own service, where Scouts and leaders focused on how being equipped is important, whether it is being equipped for Scouts, sports or their spiritual life.

In its Patrol Leaders Council the following Monday evening, youth leaders praised the fun everyone had, noted the shelters held up well, and the compass course was a good time.
Patrols rotated between stations, where Scoutmaster Andrew Baird discussed the components of survival kits, and Assistant Scoutmaster Jason Smith demonstrated water-filtering techniques. Finally, patrols started on the artistic creations that will come to be known as their patrol flags. Stay tuned for proof following this weekend's wilderness survival campout that Troop 50 did in fact survive the wild. At the end of the meeting, Scoutmaster Baird unveiled the new Troop 50 flag and explained how flags create a sense of unity, identity and connectedness for groups like Boy Scout troops and as far back as the knights of old. The troop will hold a PLC meeting Thursday, January 3 to discuss meeting plans and campouts through the spring. Troop 50, chartered by the Auburn Rotary Club, is a new unit founded in 2012 by experienced Scouts and seasoned leaders. The wilderness survival skills which abound in old Boy Scout manuals could help us all become more prepared for an emergency.
Modern scouting workbooks and badges may focus a lot more on technology merit badges, but the old training manuals offer a multitude of back-to-basics skills in easy-to-understand step-by-step instructions. Old Boy Scout manuals prioritize wilderness survival tasks in a no-frills manner that we should still be mimicking today.

As a result of their work, Scouts attending the campout earned the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge.
Our two patrols competed in a map-reading and orienteering course, with the final bearing leading to a gravity-fed shower for each patrol's future use.
They also thought rotating troop cooking and cleaning among patrols worked well and spread the load among everyone.
After the meeting opening, members of the Average Joe's Patrol presented members of the troop with suggestions for wilderness gear, clothing and hydration.
We look forward to the grand unveiling of their original works of art, which will become visual identifiers of the troop's inaugural patrols. I am in Scouts because I love to be outdoors, I am a leader and will help anyone who needs it at anytime, and I love to have fellowship with my friends who I can have fun with!
He represents his patrol on the troop Patrol Leaders’ Council, works with the troop's senior patrol leader and other youth leaders, and appoints the patrol's assistant patrol leader. Security is the immediate need which must be assessed during any type of emergency scenario. Once reaching or establishing a safe zone and taking care of weapons and first aid issues, other physical needs now need to be addressed, according to old Boy Scout manuals.
The first Boy Scouts of America handbook issues in 1911 encourages all troop members to eat whole wheat for its “muscle-building” properties and because it is easily digestible. Old Boy Scouts manuals also note that the way to achieve big things is to prepare yourself for doing all of the big things. Woodcraft skills outlined in the old training manuals also teach users about edible roots, nuts, bark and fruit which are found in the woods. Knot tying instructions in old Boy Scout manuals will guide users through the steps necessary to complete the type of knots necessary for building a shelter, a snare, a slingshot, and even a primitive rod and reel. And when they need clean water, elite soldiers are choosing the Paratroopers Water Purifier -- the smallest, lightest, and most durable water purifier on earth!
This was also the troop’s inaugural campout, which gave them a chance to check out troop gear and begin working together in their patrols and as a troop-team.
After the opening, our program patrol, the Anonymous Patrol, led the troop meeting in a review of wilderness first aid. I am a Life Scout, a member of the Order of the Arrow and have attended National Youth Leader Training. The senior patrol leader will lead the meeting, which will also include the assistant senior patrol leader, patrol leaders and assistant patrol leaders -- but any Scout in the troop is encouraged to attend and participate.

The troop will follow a pattern of regularly scheduled Monday evening meetings from that point. I am a Life Scout, member of the Order of the Arrow, and I served as assistant patrol leader in my previous troop.
It may be difficult to fight the urge to patch up a gunshot wound before leaving the area, but if the entire group spends just a few seconds working on a patient at the scene, more victims and potential fatalities could likely occur. If you and those in your group are possibly at risk from predators of either the four or two-legged variety, you need to arm everyone in the group. You and members of your group are now encouraged to construct a temporary shelter, gather wood for a fire, find or evaluate available water, and address any hygiene matters which could impact your ability to function – bandage changes, wet socks or clothing, and cleansing hands before eating to prevent the spread of germs that cause illness. Knowing not only what is safe for you to eat, but what is routinely consumed by animals, may also help in the tracking and hunting process.
It’s so small and lightweight you can easily carry it in your pocket or purse, backpack or glove box. Scouts, Webelos IIs, parents and leaders then joined together to attempt making paracord survival bracelets. Consult the troop's online calendar for upcoming meetings, and once discussed by the PLC, other troop activities. Learning about the woods and animals in your area and watching the creatures in their native habitat will reportedly enhance tracking and hunting skills, as well as an awareness about finding your way in the woods. Between you and your four neighbors, chances are that at least one of the five households will experience a break-in… or worse, a home invasion. Scoutmaster Andrew Baird reviewed the many uses for paracord in a wilderness survival situation, from providing material to lash, create survival shelters, fish, provide first aid, and even floss your teeth! I play soccer on the JV Soccer Team for Auburn High, I go to church, I am in the Auburn High Marching Band and I love Auburn University Sports and Auburn High Sports!
I was a part of the only Auburn football team to go undefeated in its 7th, 8th and 9th grade years. The old manuals also encourage the study of woodcraft, as well as animal signs and tracking to determine how fast an animal was going, if it was frightened when running, and to determine how long ago the tracks were made. The troop will exercise its wilderness survival knowledge during its first troop campout Jan.
Bring your ideas for programs, advancement, service projects and camping.Any plans made by the PLC will be posted to the troop's online calendar. If everyone is not in possession of a firearm, or is too young to safely carry a gun without training, then do as the Boy Scouts instruct and sharpen a stick into a weapon or secure a knife with a rope to a pole and use it to defend yourself.
Such knowledge may enhance your ability to hunt and to know if possible other people or natural elements (fire, earthquake tremors, etc.) are an immediate danger to address. Ask anyone whose home has ever been robbed what if feels like, and they’ll say it feels like they were violated.
Because not only do criminals violate what should be your sanctuary from the world and walk away.
