Acworth Mother/Son Campout was a Great Success!

Posted on Sep 22 2019 - 12:44am

Last weekend a dedicated group of Silver Comet Scouts and Scouters helped over 80 mothers and their sons set up camp sites and engage in fun outdoor activities at the City of Acworth Annual Mother/Son Campout. What a wonderful, community-focused way to show Scout service and spirit! Thank you to the Scouts and parents of Troop 116: Alex Coogler, Noah Coogler (Second Class Scout), Lauren Schwartz, Luke Schwartz (Tenderfoot Scout), Susan Rodgers, and John Rodgers (Tenderfoot Scout); and the Eagle Scouts and Leaders of Troop 350: Conner Kautz, Evan Kautz, Andrew Helbling, and Gary Roberts. Thank you to Steve Helbling and Jeff Starnes for organizing the district's annual support of this community event. Thank you also to Chris Skibbie, a member of the community who overheard Scout Leaders discussing the event and came out to volunteer.
