All if the boys have been working together on a merit badge called “pioneering”. This is the skill of using ropes and logs to build things, the way the early pioneers had to do it. After two theory lessons, they were ready to try building something, so tonight we worked together to build a ladder that can become part of a small tower! All of the boys can now tie a reliable clove hitch and can do good square lashings. I think their progress has been excellent!
