  4. Hello from Staten Island, New York! I'm a young scouter, turning 19 in September. Just made Eagle last year and wanted a place to discuss scouting. I've remained active in my Troop with some of my fellow Eagles and visit whenever I'm back from college. Hope to share some great tips from my Troop as well as learn from others! Preparing to go on a canoe trip at TMR this weekend. Gotta finish up some business for clients before then Cheers!
