Next Event:  Cooking Competition Campout!


Scout skills campout will be held May 20-22

Posted on May 8 2016 - 5:28pm

The scout skills campout will be held May 20-22at the Burke Lake wilderness campground. This is a great opportunity for the new scouts to get some of the requirements signed off and for the older scouts to refresh their skills while they teach the classes. For those of you who haven't been to the wilderness area at Burke Lake it is a very nice area out in the woods. If it wasn't for the sound of cars in the distance you would believe you were far off in the woods. The troop also invites any interested families to join the troop for dinner on Saturday night and inspect the camp site. If you would like to join us please let me know before hand so we can make sure we have enough food.

Upcomming activities!

All -

Some upcoming Troop events are below. Some of them require a response for our planning so please read through the list.

1. Tenderfoot fitness requirement - one of the requirements for tenderfoot is that the boys record their scores for push ups, sit-ups, etc., make a plan to work on it, then come back 30 days later to show improvement. We will hold the first session before the meeting on May 17 at 6:45. This is for all the new scouts and anyone else who needs signed off on this.
