High Adventure - Answer the Call

posted Jul 2, 2017, 8:59 AM by Scout Masters

Troop 363 has been involved with the Boy Scouts High Adventure programs since its inception.  In the past 2 years alone we've had scouts attend Sea Base, Philmont, OA Trail Crews, and Operation Arrow at the upcoming 2017 National Jamboree at Summit Bechtel Reserve.

Nobody offers more exhilarating or a wider variety of high adventure for young people than the Boy Scouts of America. Through high adventure experiences, The Boy Scouts of America leaves lasting memories with youth and fosters development in character and leadership.

Troop 363 Cleans Up at "Scouting the Zoo"

posted Jul 2, 2017, 8:43 AM by Scout Masters

"Scouting the Zoo" is an annual event offered by the Three Harbors Council where Boy Scouts can camp inside of the Milwaukee County Zoo.  Each troop makes a scout skill presentation, promoting Scouting to the public.  This year our scouts chose to make a pioneering see-saw and it was a hit!  Troop 363 had a great showing at the event.

They showed off their Paul Bunyan skills by winning the Ax Man competition. They displayed, pioneering skills, team building, EDGE and interview skills by taking 2nd place in the displays competition with the wooden see-saw display. And they exhibited their brain powers by taking first in the Founders Feud competition.


Great job Scouts!
