White River Trails District
Proudly serving the youth and families of Greene, Daviess, Lawrence, Martin, and Orange Counties.
FALL CAMPOREE - OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!
What a great time the Scouts and Scouters had at Fall Camporee at Spring Mill State Park. Despite the weather Friday night, there was much fun and excitement to be had. Our big event of the weekend was hearing from Ken Bowersox, Eagle Scout and astronaut. He spoke to us about his days in Scouting, involvement on multiple Shuttle missions, and his time in the International Space Station, which, he spent more than 5 months circling the earth.
We also heard from Steve Grissom, cousin to Virgil "Gus" Grissom, another local astronaut and hero. As he shared stories about Gus Grissom, we all began to understand why he is so revered locally.
Thanks goes to Troop 348 for hosting an amazing camporee!!! All in all, it was a great success!!!
Congratulations White River Trails for blowing last year's popcorn sales away by more than $20,000! It took an all out effort from the units that sold more than $162,000 in popcorn. This translates into a lot of earnings going back to units and programming throughout the year. Thank you to all unit Popcorn Kernels, adult leaders, parents, and the Scouts. You have made White River Trails very successful!
