Be Prepared

Aidan Andrew

Being a Boy Scout in Troop 443 in Covina has challenged me to learn valuable life skills. This summer I was able to develop these skills to earn several merit badges including: first aid, life saving, fishing, and rifle shooting. Last summer I was able to go to Camp Big Horn in Lake Arrowhead and this summer I spent a whole week at Camp Cherry Valley on Catalina Island. We sailed on a boat to the island and once we arrived, we hiked about two miles to the camp site. The camp was filled with many fun activities like kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling, and shooting sports. I learned many new things and spent quality time with my scout friends.
