This year nature threw a curve ball at us as it cut us short by 1 camping night due to heavy rain. Still, the we had a lot of fun as we took the opportunity to address various cooking requirements for ranking purposes while playing some western games. The weather was cold but we had a good time!


01/07/24 Celebration of Life

In December, Mr. James Burt passed way. Mr Burt was fully dedicated to Troop 275 as a long time leader. As Scoutmaster Otto Mercado put it, “To say that he was head of the table for our Troop and Pack is an understatement as Mr. Burt represented so much more than that to our organization and our community. He was a member of Belair United Methodist Church, a member of the Charlotte Rifle & Pistol Club, and a member of the VFW Post 12136 (to name a few). Never in my lifetime have I come across such a respectable individual who was so highly invested in our youth.” In January many Scouts attended his memorial to honor him.
