We are honored to have Mr. Primes, Eagle Rank Counselor, conduct a "Life to Eagle Workshop" for the Troop. This event is best attended by STAR rank scouts and above that are considering embarking on their EAGLE requirements and project. Please sign up for this event on the troop calendar. Both the scout and at least one parent should attend the session.

Typically the workshop is 1.5 - 2 hours long depending upon the # of attendees and # of questions. Light refreshments will be provided but be sure to have dinner before arriving.

We are holding this event in May so scouts can use the valuable summer months to prepare and work on their projects during the summer.
