Troop 421 High Adventure Scholarship

Scouting provides significant character building opportunities that can remain out of reach for some families due to financial considerations. Without detracting from the important values of thriftiness and paying one’s own way, the Troop 421 High Adventure Scholarship Fund is established to promote participation in troop-sponsored High Adventure activities.
Any family with one or more Scouts enrolled in Troop 421 of Arlington, Texas is eligible and encouraged to make use of the Scholarship Fund. The Fund is to be used to pay for major expenses such as fees, equipment, transportation and training for High Adventure troop-sponsored activities.
Please see the High Adventure documents on the Forms Tab

I Blame the Boy Scouts

Fifty years ago, as a Boy Scout, I climbed my first mountain, or rather what passes for a mountain in West Texas. Our troop was camping at Moss Creek Lake near Big Spring, Texas. Off in the distance, rising above the remnants of the Edwards Plateau, stood Signal Peak, a solitary, pyramid-shaped formation squared off at the top by what looked, to us kids, like a hundred-foot-tall limestone cap. Growing up 80 miles away in Midland, we were surrounded by a flat, featureless landscape. Seeing this monolith looming on the horizon 2,667 feet above sea level proved an irresistible temptation to us 12-, 13-, and 14-year-old boys out for a weekend of adventure and exploration.
