Court of Honor

On Thursday evening Pack/Troop 2513 held their court of honor.  This is an awesome troop just for kids with special needs.  Philip is one of the higher functioning kids which helps him feel a real sense of accomplishment when he can take a bit more leadership than he does among a typical peer group.  We can't say enough good about this troop, Gary their scoutmaster, Maria the awesome scout mom and the whole program.  This is one of those blessings we would miss out on if we didn't have children with special needs.  Philip earned his tenderfoot this time around and also some other badges - fishing, Indian lore, reading, selling popcorn and a badge for attending Camp Ware.  Way to go Phlip!

   Reciting the scout oath.  The troop is both a cubscout pack and a scout troop so they say both oaths.

 Lighting the candles - one for each part of  the oath.
