Kevin Radics, Scoutmaster - Troop 17
Scoutmaster Kevin Radics was in the first group of Tiger Scouts in Pack 356 in Centereach, NY in the early 1980s, and scouting is in the family. His father was a Boy Scout and Assistant Scoutmaster, his mother was a Troop Committee member, his brother received Eagle Scout, and his sister received her Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouting. Kevin received his Eagle Rank in 1994 and continued earning merit badges to attain Bronze Palms
Scouting has brought Kevin on adventures as far north as Maine, as far west as New Mexico, as far south as Florida, and even outside the U.S. Some of his favorite scouting trips include climbing Mount Katahdin (the highest point in Maine at the end of the A.T.), backpacking the President range in New Hampshire, and summer camping at Minsi in Pennsylvania, Yawgoog in Rhode Island, and Baiting Hollow in New York. He backpacked through Philmont, spent time with the Boy Scouts in Bermuda, and camped and sailed for a week on an island in the Florida Keys at Sea Base with his cousins, fellow Eagle Scouts from Oradell, NJ.
Kevin became involved with Pack 17 when each of his two sons joined as Tigers, and with the Troop when his older son crossed over as a Webelo. He and his wife and their two Scouts love having adventures together, from exploring the National Parks to making s'mores in their own backyard.
Kevin Radics took over as Scoutmaster of Troop 17 in January 2019.
