2015 Wreath Sales Begin November 1st!

Posted by admin on Oct 30 2015 - 2:42pm

The Devon 50 2015 Wreath Sale will officially begin on November 1st!

Every year Devon 50 scouts sell wreaths during the holidays to fund our scouting program and maintain Camp Jarvis. The wide variety of scouting activities and the great facilities of Camp Jarvis are only possible because of the past efforts of Devon 50 scouts during the wreath sale. The wreath sale is the only Devon 50 organized fund raiser we do all year, and has a direct affect on whether we can expand or need to scale back our scouting program for the following year. We really need every scout to put forth their best effort this year to do their part to continue the tradition of excellence that is Devon 50.

Devon 50 Philmont 2016 High Adventure Trek Cancelled

Posted by admin on Sep 22 2015 - 11:28am

Regrettably, due to a general lack of interest and recent withdrawals, we've decided to cancel the Devon 50 coordinated Philmont 2016 Trek. We could not get enough commitments to meet the minimum size for a crew, and we can't ask the Council to reserve a crew just for Devon 50 when we can't fill it. Note that if you still want to do Philmont in 2016 with the Chester County Council you can, but Devon 50 scouts will be in a crew with scouts from other Chester County Council troops.

Six local Boy Scouts Receive Eagle Scout Ranking

(Devon, PA – June 20, 2015) – Six local scouts received the highest ranking in Boy Scouts on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at Troop Devon 50's Spring Court of Honor. Advancing to Eagle rank requires much time, dedication and effort, including the earning of twenty-two or more merit badges (including First Aid, Personal Management, Lifesaving, Cooking, Personal Fitness), and the successful completion of an Eagle project. An Eagle Project is the opportunity for a Boy Scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of his community. This is the culmination of the Eagle Scout candidate's leadership training, and it requires a significant effort on his part. The project must benefit an organization other than the BSA, but it cannot be performed for an individual or a business or be commercial in nature. The following scouts were awarded their advancement to Eagle, and their project is also listed:
