Tim also enjoyed expeditions to Northern Tier High Adventure trip in Minnesota and Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. He served his troop as Assistant Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader and Scribe and is also a member of the Order of the Arrow.
Because of his deep faith and his desire to assist the Little Sisters of the Poor and their elderly residents, Timothy chose to complete his Eagle Project at St. Martin's Home in Catonsville. Timothy's project included planting evergreen trees, which serve as wind and noise barriers, and a pink dogwood tree that commemorates the Little Sisters 45th anniversary at the home.
Timothy also designed, constructed and stained four movable benches made out of composite and wood. The benches, originally placed at the Stations of the Cross, have been moved and can now be found at the entrance of the home. Timothy led a team of 47 Scouts, family and friends, which took 269 labor hours.
During high school, Timothy was a member of the varsity football and track teams and was also active in St. Augustine's youth group. Timothy graduated from Loyola Blakefield and is currently attending Mount St. Mary's University.
Wyatt Bauman spent 113 nights camping, hiked 131 miles, biked 223 miles, logged 246 hours on the water, participated in countless service hours and earned 33 merit badges including wilderness survival, fish and wildlife management and plumbing.

Wyatt's Eagle Project consisted of building 10 Maryland Wood Duck houses which were placed in the southern region of Patapsco Valley State Park. His love and appreciation for the great outdoors and the need for more wildlife conservation in this area led him to want to do this project. Wyatt led a team of 23 Scouts, family and friends, which took 91 labor hours.
Outside of Scouts, Wyatt is an avid hunter and fisherman and loves to go for walks in the woods. He is currently attending Howard Community College. Wyatt is also working with his father learning the plumbing business and is thinking about following in his father's footsteps by becoming a mechanical contractor/master plumber and taking over the family business one day.
