Great news!! Boy Scouts are back in West Unity after 15 years of being gone. The West Unity Boy Scout Troop 669 have had a lot of things going on these last 2 years. We have just attended our second year at Boy Scout camp at Camp Lakota in Defiance Ohio. The boys participated in many activities such as a climbing tower, archery, rifle shooting, swimming, boating on the lake, and many other merit badges to work towards the rank of Eagle.
Two of our young men worked on staff for two weeks as councilors in training and are looking forward to working on staff full time next summer. These same young men also attended NYLT which is National Youth Leadership Training at Camp Lakota. They learned leadership skills on how to lead the troop in the coming years and how to guide and teach the younger scouts as well as the new ones coming into the troop.
The Boy Scout Troop is actively involved with the West Unity Cub Scout Pack. They help out at all events including the Raingutter Regatta, Space race, and the Pinewood Derby. They also helped judge the cakes at the annual Blue and Gold Banquet.
If any boy is interested in Cub scouts or Boy scouts please contact Brad Wiyrick at 419-553-6782 or check us out on Facebook at West Unity Boy Scout Troop 669.
