cavetripWe are preparing for an exciting night in Indian Caverns, the largest limestone cavern in Pennsylvania.

The cavern is a steady 56º Fahrenheit (13º C) all year round, which makes it warmer than camping outdoors at this time of year.

Preparing scouts should refer to the Cavern Camping Packing List.

The Chess Merit Badge!14963875927_b7253e92d9_o

Chess develops critical thinking skills, concentration skills, and decision-making skills — all of which can help you in other areas of your life.  Besides the rules of the game, some of the things we are learning about chess include:

  • History of the game
  • Sportsmanship and etiquette
  • Strategy for opening, middle and end game
  • Scorekeeping
  • How to teach someone else to play

We are currently playing a chess tournament to practice both our strategy and our scorekeeping.
