The Scouts spent July 4 weekend camping at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania, where they hiked and toured the area.

During a weeklong camp-out July 12-18 at Camp T. Brady Saunders in Maidens, the troop won the Clean Camp and Spirit awards. Troop members earned 17 merit badges during the week.

Earlier this month, the Colonial Beach Masonic Lodge hosted a dinner for Troop and Venture Crew 258's newest Eagle Scout, Brendan Turner.

For the past three years, the Masons have honored new Eagle Scouts from Troop 258, sponsored by Colonial Beach Baptist Church, and Troop 255, sponsored by St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Oak Grove.
