Though out the year, the Scouts of Tierra Rejada are busy in one form or another. Whether it is fund raising through Popcorn sales, community service with Scout for Food or just plain fun with Pinewood Derby, there is plenty of activities to keep these boys busy. Every single event contributes to their overall development as future leaders and contributors to the values and principles our country holds dear.
Scout for Food
Every year in February, the scouts drop off grocery bags in Tierra Rejada neighborhoods for residents to contribute canned and dry goods to the Manna food bank. The following weekend, they get up early on Saturday and round up was was left by our generous neighbors.
Every year in September and October, you can expect to see Scouts at the entrances to supermarkets and going door to door to raise money for scouting. These funds go to promote scouting principles and turning young boys into young men who will become tomorrow's leaders. Please help us out when scouts ask you for your assistance.
Flags Memorial Day
With the month of May comes the unofficial start of summer and the Memorial Day weekend,. While many may be taking the extra time for BBQ's and pool parties, the scouts are up early that Saturday placing flags on the graves of the Veterans who gave their lives in service to our country.
Once school is out for the summer, then the various scout camps can commence, From local camps to trips to Three Falls, June and July are week long immersions in what scouting is all about. BB Guns, Archery and games are jsut some of the activities the boys participate in.
Nothing goes more with the scouting year than the annual Pinewood Derby. Each boy whittles, shapes and paints his special car for the big race day. Prizes, trophies and a fun time for all make this annual event one to look forward to.
Bridge to Boy Scouts
Every year the older Cub Scouts make their way to Boy Scouts. This ceremony is called Bridging and it is when the Cub Scout becomes a Boy Scout. This gains them access to even more activities and responsibilities as they work their way towards Eagle Scout.
Each Year more than 400 Boy Scouts participate in activities ranging from fire burning to tomahawk throwing at the annual Tierra Rejada District Camporee. They teach more than just tying knots or building fires as well as teamwork, trust and bonding skills.
