Teen Refurbished Campfire Circle at NSCD Therapeutic Riding Center for Eagle Project
After many years of community service, earning 27 merit badges, and scores of Scout campouts, Dylan Cormican of Boy Scout Troop 104, chartered to the Fraser Valley Lions Club, reached a lifetime goal by earning his Eagle Scout rank. The final step in the process was his Eagle project, refurbishing the campfire circle at the National Sports Center for the Disabled’s Therapeutic Riding Center located at the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch.
Dylan began his project in June and built three handmade log benches, leveled the
ground to accommodate wheelchairs, brought in gravel and river rock, and provided a
new campfire ring for cooking. He is grateful for the help of his entire troop and many
family friends for their support in completing this project. He’d also like to thank the
following organizations for donating supplies to make this project possible; Fraser Valley
Ace Hardware, Ronnie Morrow with Morrow and Sons for the gravel, and Jay Conroy at
Conroy Excavating for hauling gravel to the site. Dylan is also appreciative to the
NSCD, and especially the Therapeutic Riding Center Program Director, Nicole
Robinson, for allowing him to work on his Eagle Project for their organization.
The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance,
not only in Scouting but also for the young man as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. Only about four percent of all Boy Scouts earn the
rank of Eagle Scout once their project is complete and they go through a lengthy review
process. The requirements to fulfill this rank take years of dedication to achieve.
The Cormican family, along with Troop 104, will host Dylan’s Court of Honor on January
21 at Church of the Eternal Hills in Tabernash to celebrate his accomplishment. He will
be presented with his Eagle badge at this ceremony.
