Carpinteria High School senior Kameron Ryan Dayka has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. Representing Carpinteria Troop 50, Dayka’s accomplishment is the result of more than 11 years of adventure, fun, work and dedication to the scouting program.
Dayka has performed community service and provided service and leadership for his troop while satisfying the requirements for the Eagle rank. In addition to the traditional outdoor skills learned in Boy Scouts, Dayka has earned a host of merit badges including those from Wilderness Survival to Citizenship in the World. His Eagle project was a flag depository for old and worn flags that need to be retired, and is located at the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District station on Walnut Avenue.
Faded or tattered American flags left in the drop box will be properly disposed of by the Boy Scouts of America in a dignified and ceremonious fashion. Dayka was formally presented the Eagle Scout award at a Court of Honor ceremony at the Carpinteria Community Church on Nov. 16, and also received a Certificate of Recognition from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, a Certificate of Recognition from the Colonel George C. Woolsey Chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars and a Good Citizenship Award from Detachment 024 of the Marine Corps League.
