Eagle's Nest Program On The Move

New Patch to identify Eagle's Nest participants

A new patch (See Picture) has been developed to identify. The leaders and scouts that are part of the Eagle's Nest program. This is a very distinctive patch and boldly tells what the program is all about -- Troops helping other Troops.

If you are interested in mentoring another troop, please contact Bob Nelson at 651-735- 4089.

There are many troops that are well established and have the leaders and skills to work with another troop. We’ll help you get started and give you support in getting a mentoring program going.


Troop 32 is the newest Eagle's Nest troop

Troop 32, located at and sponsored by the Salvation Army, is the newest troop in the Eagle’s Nest program. Paul Yang is a Neighborhood Guide with the Northern Star Council and is currently serving as Scoutmaster. Troop 32 meets at the Salvation Army on Payne Avenue on St. Paul’s Eastside and is supported by adult leaders from Troop 71 in Woodbury as part of this mentoring and support program developed by the College of Wilderness Knowledge of the Pine Bend Association. The Troop 71 adult leaders, especially Dave Skinner, attend the Troop 32 meetings and help with leading the advancement program and in setting up camping weekends. They also encourage scouts and leaders from Troop 32 to attend Troop 71 scout meetings and participant in their advancement programs.
