Cameron and Bryce Devine of Troop 61 are receiving their Eagle Scout Rank on Aug. 16.

To receive their Eagle Scout rank, the two 16-year-old scouts completed individual service projects. Both Cameron and Bryce planned, coordinated and led a small team. Their Eagle Scout projects are a large part of the requirement to attain Eagle Scout rank (the highest rank within the Boy Scouts), along with earning 21 merit badges.

Bryce’s project was to remodel the courtyard at Living Hope Church. With the help of other volunteers, Bryce beautified the area for baptisms and picnics.

“It feels absolutely amazing to know that I made an impact on my church,” Bryce said. “The space that was once in bad condition can now be used once again.”

The project totaled 250 hours of planning and manual labor.

Cameron’s project included landscaping around Northlake Community Church’s sign to enhance the entryway.

“I feel really good and I know I can help out in many other ways,” Cameron said. “We were able to make something that everyone will enjoy as they drive into the church.”

Cameron said he learned to properly attend to everyone’s needs. He too completed 250 hours of planning and manual labor.

Both scouts said they are happy to be receiving their Eagle Scout rank.

“To know that I have finally made it feels insanely heart fulfilling,” Bryce said. “I have accomplished so much throughout my years of scouting. Now I can actually call myself an Eagle Scout.

Cameron said it feels “amazing to finally reach the end of the long journey.” He now has the skills he learned to help him throughout the rest of his life.

Both scouts started their scouting journey in 2010 at the age of 7. The two have completed all requirements for each of the seven ranks.
