Saturday 23 May at 9PM

  • Go to a dark place or turn down/turn off the lights.
  • Your camera and audio will be turned off.
  • Think about how you listen to a story at a campfire. There are few distractions which allows you to listen carefully, and process and think about the story. For this reason, we recommend you remove all distractions and don't multitask (so, close all other apps on a computer and put down your phone and just listen/watch).

    This project qualifies for the coveted conservation-related service hours required for Life rank!
  • You do good for the community, learn new skills, get ideas for how you might do your own Eagle Project, and get to hang out with the troop.
  • It's a great way to spend the day and it's kinda what Scouts do ("...to help other people at all times....").
