CNJC Cache to Eagle Series-Thrifty
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is one in a series of caches sponsored by Boy Scout Leaders in Central New Jersey Council BSA that will feature Eagle projects.
Eagle is the highest rank that a boy can earn in scouts. He has to complete at least 21 merit badges (12 specific required ones and 9 others of his choosing). He also has to hold a position of leadership in the troop for at least 6 months, plus plan and carry out a service project that benefits either a religious or community organization. Many of these projects exceed 100 man-hours to complete. The scout has to fund-raise to pay for this also.
There will be a total of 13 caches in the series. The first 12 will be named for the 12 points of the Scout Law: "A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent". The 13th cache will be a puzzle cache. There is a clue in each of the first 12 that taken together will give you the co-ordinates of the final cache. As you visit each of the caches, be sure to collect the clue in each one so that you can gather the co-ordinates for the final puzzle cache. These all will be coming out soon. Completion of the whole series will enable you to purchase a special patch designed for our council to commemorate this series.
This cache is located in Stephens State Park near an Eagle Project built by Cody of Troop 158. He built the steps that lead from the corner of the parking lot down to the river. The project took well over 120 hrs to complete.
