BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ -: On D-Day, May 30th, the Boy Scout Troop 368 hosted their 12th annual Rubber Ducky Race at Passaic River Park in Berkeley Heights. This is an annual fundraiser that the Troop has partnered with the Berkeley Heights Rotary Club to make a day packed with family fun. From games for the kids to the Duck Race, there is something for everyone.

Scouts from Troop 368 volunteered their time to help with the games and coordinate the duck race in kayaks and canoes.

The Boy Scouts work hard each year to raise money for this event by selling tickets and helping at the event. The different jobs include running the games, participating in the dunk tank, and help guide the ducks to the finish line.

An important characteristic of scouting is learning how to fundraise. This builds skills including how to talk to adults, and how to organize an event such as the duck race. There are a few fundraisers per year, this one however is the biggest.

The scouts learn skills that are beneficial to learn at a young age in a changing world. With these skills, a scout can succeed in future endeavors such as college and beyond. If you would like to join scouts or get involved, go to beascout.org and enter your zip code to find a troop near you.
