In addition to the many awards available through the official BSA program, Troop 810 has created a number of special awards that may only be earned by Scouts who are active members of our Troop. Currently, these awards include:

Scout of the Year: a plaque awarded to the Scout who during the calendar year has accumulated the most points under the Troop’s point system designed to recognize attendance, participation, advancement, service, and leadership. A Scout may earn Scout of the Year honors only once during his or her Troop 810 career.

Baden-Powell Leadership Award: a plaque presented to the Scout who is voted by his or her fellow scouts as best exemplifying the spirit of leadership modeled by Scouting’s founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell. A Scout may be selected to receive this award only once during his or her Troop 810 career.

Spirit Award: a plaque presented to the Scout who is chosen by the Scoutmaster Staff as best exemplifying the ideals of the Scout Promise and Law during the year. A Scout may be selected to receive this award only once during his or her Troop 810 career.

Ralphy Cup: a special cup (bucket) signed and dated by those Scouts who have barfed, upchucked, vomited, hurled, thrown-up, and/or ralphed during a Troop 810 camping trip.

Camping Stars: a white camping star is presented to Scouts and Adult leaders for every twenty nights of overnight field experience with Troop 810. Stars are placed on the Troop neckerchief. This does not include overnights at District, Council or OA events that were not planned outings in which the entire Troop was included.

Community Service Awards: medals are presented by the Troop to those Scouts who have actively served our Community by participating in service projects. A bronze medal is awarded for 150 hours, silver at 250 hours and gold at 500 hours. This does not include service hours at District, Council or OA events that were not planned outings in which the entire Troop was included.

Hiking Awards: presented by the Troop to recognize Scouts that hike an impressive number of miles. A bronze hiking boot is presented for 150 miles hiked, silver for 250 miles hiked, and a gold boot for 500 miles hiked. This is a long-term commitment by the Scout and his or her award is intended to promote a great appreciation for nature as well as physical exercise. The mileage goals are significant but achievable with perseverance. This does not include service hours at District, Council or OA events that were not planned outings in which the entire Troop was included.

Cycling Awards: presented by the Troop to recognize those Scouts that cycle an impressive number of miles. A bronze bike pedal is awarded for 250 miles rode, a silver pedal for 375 miles, and a golden pedal for 500 miles rode. As with the hiking awards the mileage goals are significant but achievable with perseverance. This does not include service hours at District, Council or OA events that were not planned outings in which the entire Troop was included.
