2021 Tyler Drapac Eagle Court of Honor and Troop Court of Honor and Crossover Cermony plus Mr.Goodwin Lifetime National Eagle Scout Association Membership


I’ve captured a number of photos of the recent Court of Honor.

Shooting into a bright sky under a dark shelter makes for a difficult exposure challenge. Hope they came out OK.

Summer Camp 2021

Troop 533,

It is time to get ready for summer camp again.  We are going to Camp Frontier at Pioneer Scout Reservation.  Camp starts on 6/20 and ends on 6/26.  The cost is $416 per scout and $173 per adult leader.  

If you are a Scout that is even remotely interested, these two things have to be done ASAP.

1.  Fill out BSA Health Forms A, B, and C.  C will require a visit to a medical personnel so get this scheduled as soon as possible.

2.  Look at the Merit Badge offerings and let me know which merit badges you are interested in doing.  I need this information by April 28 or you may not get your choices.

For any adults who are thinking of going, the State of Michigan requires a Central Registry Clearance.  Part of Pioneer Reservation is in Michigan and so this is required.  Please get this completed and sent out as soon as you can.

If you do decide to go, payment will be due by June 1.  If there are any questions, please reach out to me.
