Great Time at Camp Bear Paw
Posted July 22, 2013
Although it was hot all week, fun was had by all at Camp Bear Paw! We had a small group this year, but we had a very dedicated group that earned a ton of advancements and Merit Badges. Overall, our scouts earned 19 merit badges, and all 4 advanced at least one rank while at camp! I believe a record number of "Charleston Chews" were consumed as well. The leaders are not certified in "Nap-On Safely", and put their training to good use during the week. Scoutmaster Dave an ASM Jason even won a cooking competition for their "Camp Rokilio Bog Water Chicken".

Road to Eagle
September 22, 2012
Scoutmaster Dave, along with the Troop Committee, would like to say Congratulations to Ben Bartenstein for earning the rank of Eagle!!! Ben's Eagle Project was the rebuilding of the Oostburg Honor Roll sign in Mentink Park. Ben will be presented with the honor at the Eagle Board of Review in December. More details will be posted as them come along.

Gardner Dam was GREAT
June 28, 2010
Another great week at Gardner Dam!!! All four boys completed 3 merit badges each and had a blast doing it. The weather got in the way at times, but other than that, everything went well. I didn't have to eat any “hockey pucks” or “liquid pancakes”! The boys did very well with cooking and worked well together. Well done, Scouts! Assistant Scoutmaster Malueg

Medal of Honor
January 15, 2010
Congratulations to Joshua Velier on earning the highest award in scouting. On Dec. 28th Josh was presented his Eagle Award in front of family, friends, and fellow scouts. He is the 22nd Eagle Scout to come out of Troop 843 since its inception in 1937. WE are all very proud of him and are looking forward hearing many good things from him. Josh moved to Missouri in August and is going to school to be an Electrician. He also hopes to continue his involvement with scouting.
In what ever you do, Josh, we wish you all the best! Good Job, Well Done!

Scouting For Food
October 26, 2009
American Legion Post 286, Boy Scout Troop 843, and Pack 3843 would like to give thanks to everyone in the Oostburg and Hingham area who supported our "Scouting For Food" food drive this year. Without the generous donations of people in the community, the success of this event could not be possible. Of course, this event would never happen if it would not be for the efforts of many people from the Legion, the Troop and the Pack. As always, the food collected will go to the food bank in the Oostburg Legion Hall, and will benefit needy families in our area.

A Celebration to Remember!
October 3, 2009
100 years of scouting capped off in traditional Boy Scout style, with a Jamboree! More than 10,000 Scouts and Scouters gathered on the grounds of the EAA in Oshkosh to kick off this Centennial Celebration. They came from all over the Midwest representing 21 different councils. With tents just about as far as you can see all around you, and so many Scout uniforms and the presence of the National Guard, This was truly a site to remember!
Our Scouts were able to observe many demonstrations, from RC Planes, Military and Police Implement and tactics, to Snake handling. They also got to participate in events such as Rifle Shooting, an Obstacle Course, and Kite Flying. All in all, we had a lot of fun! I hope to see everyone at the next one (In another 100 years)!

"Lucky Duck"
Posted April 18, 2009
On Saturday, April 18th, we had eight boys and five adults to help with the placement of the Wood Duck Houses we made. We split up into two groups, and we were able to get them all hung by 10:30 a.m. Everyone had lots of fun. We saw a lot of wildlife, and we even got a few wet feet. I would like to thank Mr. Davies for the lumber, Daane Hardware and Oostburg Lumber for materials, Mr. Brusse for use of his shop, and everyone who helped with this project. We can all take pride in the fact that we helped make our waterways more attractive by insuring the population of such a beautiful bird. Thanks again to everyone who helped make this project a success! Waddle we do next?
