York, PA -- Owen Braham of Spring Grove, and Troop 30 achieved the rank of Eagle Scout on Dec. 18, 2012, at the age of 14.

From Tenderfoot to Eagle Scout, Owen spent a total of 52 nights of camping and earned 30 merit badges along with the World Conservation Award. He eagerly attended every year of summer camp throughout his scouting journey.

In 2012, Owen earned the 50-mile Award by hiking the Appalachian Trail with a small group of other dedicated scouts and parents. To date, Owen performed a total of 352 service hours, part of which was performed during his Eagle Scout service project.

Owen's project took place at Codorus State Park, Hanover, and consisted of renovating the mountain bike trails, erecting a bridge of pipe and stone for trail crossing, and remarking each trail with new posts and numbers for visibility.

After rerouting some of the trails, he provided an updated map to Codorus State Park for their records. Throughout Boy Scouts, Owen served the following positions: Assistant Patrol Leader, Quartermaster and Patrol Leader.

Owen is currently serving as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and working to earn his Eagle Palms.
