Diocesan Camper Completes Eagle Scout Project at Camp!

“On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times;
to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” This is the Scout Oath as seen on the website of the Boy Scouts of America. Recently, Camp Nazareth provided Matthew Brainard of Troop 4025 in Champion, Ohio with the opportunity to do his Eagle Project so that he could earn the rank of Eagle Scout. While at the Camp, Matthew worked alongside his father, Keith Brainard, and his brothers, Michael and Peter Stan to re-landscape the beds around the bathhouse.

         The project took two days to complete from start to finish, working from morning until night both days. Planning the project was a task in itself to ensure enough materials were ordered to complete the project. As a lover of Camp Nazareth, it was easy for Matthew to choose Camp as the location for his Eagle Scout project. It was merely a matter of the project getting approved by the Scout committee and by the Camp itself. After presenting his project to the committee and receiving approval from the Scout committee and the Camp, Matthew eagerly started his project and finished it before any campers or user groups arrived to camp.

         The work Matthew has done at camp is very well done. And by taking on such a task he is demonstrating his love for God, his love for Camp, and is fulfilling his duty to God. Camp Nazareth is a special place where the administration and staff work hard to give the campers, and all guests, a place to pray, experience peace and stillness, and to recharge spiritual batteries. We want to thank Matthew and his crew for giving back and working diligently for the glory of God!
