Tonight's meeting is a regular meeting at
Bethel Baptist Church
Kroger's Community Rewards Program will donate a percentage of your in-store purchases to the charitable organization of your choice -- hopefully BSA Troop 800. All you have to do to make this happen is link your Kroger Plus Shopper's Card to the Troop's account. This costs you nothing. Your spending is 100% confidential and this program DOES NOT affect your earnings toward fuel program discounts.
February 4, 2017 -- Florence, SC
It is with great pride that we pass along the following news from BSA Troop 800's very first Eagle Scout, Michael Hesbach.
"It is with great joy and excitement that I announce my selection as the Scout Executive of Pee Dee Area Council in Florence, SC. I start on March 1. I have truly been blessed with a supportive wife and family. I am forever grateful to the many volunteers along the way, for we share in our successes together. I look forward to serving the volunteers and staff in Florence."
September 16-18, 2016 -- Camp Justis - Powhatan, VA | Capital Bike Trail - Henrico, VA
This month's campout was originally scheduled to be whitewater rafting at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC. However, after the unexpected death of a park visitor due to a brain-eating amoeba, the whitewater portion of the park was closed back in June. Out of an abudnance of caution, we decided to scrap those plans altogether and go with a backup.
Here's a cool video from our Scouting friends in South Africa.
September 10, 2015 -- The Boulders - Richmond, VA
As part of our community involvement, BSA Troop 800 served as the Honor Guard for the opening ceremony of the Amazing Raise 5K at the Boulders at the request of the race's organizers. Eagle Scout Eric Miller provided services as a race volunteer, while Life Scout Steven Russotti and Star Scout James Bright handled the honor guard duties.

July 18-25, 2015 -- Camp Raven Knob - Mt. Airy, NC
Another July and another summer camp is behind us. For the first time in a few years, BSA Troop 800 returned to Camp Raven Knob in Mt. Airy, NC for summer camp. With 43 boys going this year, we had nearly 100% attendance for the troop.
June 19-21, 2015 -- Camp Justis - Powhatan, VA
The Summer campouts always tend to be more low key than normal and this month's was no exception. With a bunch of boys out of town on the High Adventure trip to Seabase down in Florida and a lot of others on family vacations and such, we only had about 25 boys on this trip, including nearly all of our first year scouts.
