Congratulations to both Conner and Samantha, who earned their Venturing Outdoor Bronze Awards and had them presented by Sharon Moulds, the Chief Seattle Council's Scout Executive. To qualify for the Outdoor Bronze, a Venturer must complete four of the eight Core requirements and two of the eighteen elective requirements toward the Ranger Award.
For his Core requirements, Conner chose Standard First Aid, Communications, Cooking, Land Navigation, Backpacking, and Shooting Sports. Conner's a senior at North Kitsap High, a two-time veteran of expeditions at Philmont Scout Ranch, and is presently the Crew's Vice President of Program.
Samantha, a skilled pianist, also holds a reputation among the Crew as a quiet backpacker who will quickly hike you into the ground if you don't keep up...and always with a grin. Her Bronze concentrated on Communicaitons, Leave No Trace principles, Conservation, Emergency Preparedness, Backpacking (well, duh), and Physical Fitness. Sam's a junior at Kingston High School.
