The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) "Cache to Eagle" series is a National program to highlight past Eagle Scout projects. This is one of the first "Cache to Eagle" for Cape Fear Council!
Cape Fear Council is a smaller council with 2000 registered youth as of Oct 2023, and is always looking for more.
For Eagle Scout, and in addition to all of the typical Scout skills, badges, and having lots of fun doing outdoor activities, an Eagle Scout candidate has to come up with their own project, coordinate resources, and provide leadership. This is in addition to performing traditional community service for each prior rank they have obtained up to this point.
Near this cache you will find the Scotland Memorial "Tree of Life" dedicated to the struggle and fight of cancer patients, there is a plaque at the foot of the tree. In addition you will see a exercise station in the vicinity, as well as several others all around the property perimeter that were setup as part of an Eagle Scout candidates project.
