Welcome to Troop 10!

Troop 10 meets Sunday Evenings at 4:00 PM at Harris Lake, 8755 Poplar Tent Road, Concord, NC.

Our Troop averages one campout or outing every month and we plan our calendar a year in advance to make it happen. In between outings we work on team building challenges, advancement skills, planning the next campout, and have fun.

Our scouts advance by doing what scouts do. Our focus is on exposing scouts to experiences that help them to develop, reinforce, and master skills that will last a lifetime.

We firmly believe in the boy-run boy-lead patrol method. Our scouts elect their own leaders, make their own decisions, learn from their mistakes, and teach each other. Troop 10 currently has about a 3-to-1 boy to Scoutmaster ratio. So even though we are a boy-run troop, we have plenty of supervision for our frequent camping trips. We also have a very active committee and a supportive sponsoring organization.

We hope that you like what you see and come for a visit. We are always looking for more boys to share our scouting adventure!

Troop 10 News February, 2021

Hey Troop 10,
Our Scouting year is off to a great start! We have braved the cold (28 degrees) in
January at Camp Old Indian where the Scouts hiked to the top of Old Indian Mountain
while carrying all the equipment and food needed to enjoy a Patrol hot lunch. While
hiking, they assisted the Campmaster in some conservation/cleanup work on the
Camp’s trail system. Then, that evening, they had the opportunity to look at some
constellations through the Campmasters telescope. We spent the night in Adirondack
shelters equipped with wood bunk beds.
In February, the Troop camped at a historical site called Winterseat in SC where the
Scouts braved two nights in the cold and one of the wettest campouts ever. Parts of the
campsite were under 3-5 inches of water the entire time. When the Troop arrived on
Friday night we had to set up in the dark and after an unexpected visit from an
Armadillo, yes really, an Armadillo, we were able to bed down. On Saturday, the activity
was to build a fort out of tarps, ropes and poles that could be used as the Patrols shelter
for cooking etc. The Patrols had spent time in the previous weeks designing plans for it.
The Adult Leaders built a shelter as well from the same materials. Rain and cold made
the construction very difficult and slow. None of the Scouts ever complained once
about the cold or the rain and the Troop really showed how they followed the Scout
Motto “Be Prepared”.
In 2020, we were faced with many restrictions and changes in how we go through
everyday life. Most of those restrictions are still in place and our Troop has adapted. I
am so impressed with all the Scouts who attended these campouts. Every time we
camp, these Scouts are showing how much they enjoy meeting the challenges
presented to them. Troop 10’s focus is to teach Scouts leadership of themselves and
others through the outdoor program. Our Scouts will grow to be responsible adults who
can handle the adversity life will throw at them and they get stronger and better at it
after every activity we do.
After a campout, the next meetings are all about preparing for the next campout. In
March we are going on a Rifle Shooting trip to Camp Grimes. All the meetings leading
up to that trip will have training on different aspects of firearms, marksmanship, and
safety. We will also be building our Patrol Forts again. The weather on the February
trip didn’t allow for a complete build. I am hoping to see many improvements and some
really well-built structures on this trip.

Camp Cards

Posted on Mar 8 2021 - 10:03am
It's Camp Card Time!!!  Each year we have two fundraisers, camp cards and pumpkin patch. 
 
Each Scout will receive 7 camp cards, they are $5 each. They are very easy to sell as there are many $5 off coupons on the cards. For each one that you sell, $2.50 will go towards camp in June or if you are not going to camp it can go towards your next camping trip, where there is a fee. We do have extra cards and we can get more if needed, if you sell your cards and would like some more please contact me or see me at the meetings.

February 2020 Campout Report and Scout Advancement

Posted on Feb 19 2020 - 2:40pm

Hey Troop 10,

The Troop had a great time this past weekend at the Hammet Property campout! We
camped on a 10,000-acre tract of land in South Carolina. For many reasons, this was
also a challenging trip as we had no Patrol Leaders, no Asst. Patrol Leaders, no Senior
Patrol Leader and no Asst. Senior Patrol Leader. We did have our Troop Guide,
Christian Lake, who mentors the Raptor Patrol (New Boy Patrol) but, no members of the
Raptor Patrol were able to make the trip. He stepped up to fill in as the Patrol Leader of
the Blue Beavers. Camden Foster was the acting Patrol Leader of the Gator Patrol and
Sam Kessler was the acting Patrol Leader of the Phoenix Patrol. Carter Lewensten was
acting Senior Patrol Leader for the trip. I want to thank all the Scouts who stepped up to
fill those positions. You guys did a great job. Not having any elected Boy Leaders was
due to coincidence and illness. It seems they had all come down with something or had
another commitment on the same weekend we were camping.
