Next Generation Weekend 2018

Sigma Beta Club Next Generation Weekend


On March 9th 2018 more than 75 youth and youth advisors converged on Camp Tanah Keeta in Tequesta FL.  This was a joint effort between Phi Beta Sigma International Fraternity Inc., The Boy Scouts of America, US Fish and Wildlife, and Fish and Wildlife Conservation. The event was host by the Sigma Beta Club of West Palm Beach.  The weekend was designed to bring together Sigma Beta Clubs from around the state of Florida to experience the outdoors and to bond. It was a great success. The young men participated in the Gulfstream Council’s TK Gator grind, which is a 2 or 5 mile mud filled obstacle course race. US Fish and Wildlife Services and Fish and Wildlife Conservation provided opportunities for fishing and archery, but the biggest hit was the animals. As part of the python demo, they taught the young men how to catch a live python.  And then gave them the opportunity to try out their newly acquired knowledge on a real live snake. It was definitely an experience that they’ll be talking about until the next visit.
