Summer Camp

Hi Troop members, family and friends;

Tis the season to be preparing for summer camp! Yeah!!!! As was discussed at last month’s meeting, we need to start registering boys (and leaders/parents) for camp. First round of camp registrations (for the lowest price) is this Friday. I am looking for commitments from scouts and parents as to who is going and whole or partial week. Unfortunately, Mr. Drzadinski is unable to go to camp. Fortunately, Mr. Griglak has agreed to be Lead leader for the outing. Thank you sooo much Mr. Griglak. We are truly grateful!!! In order to cover the 2 deep requirement, we need to have at minimum a second adult at camp at all times. In order to work comfortably, it would be better to have an additional parent (#3) present so that if someone has to run into town (to dry sleeping bags, get ice, etc) we are covered. Please look at your schedules and email me as soon as possible as to your scouts intent and if parents are available and willing to come to camp – and when. Thank you for your timely responses.

T596 Family Board Game Night on Sat May 2

Each family brings their favorite board game.
We play from 7 PM (maybe earlier) until 10 PM (maybe later).
I would order a sub platter or party sub from Cousins.
Each family also brings a salad or dessert to pass.
Each family brings their own refreshments.

This would not be an official scout event and it will be free of electronic games (iPods, iPads, phones, DS, etc.).

On to Eagle April 17-19

As a follow up to our March troop meeting, I wanted to find out the interest level from the group in regard to the On to Eagle event taking place April 17-19, 2015.

For those new to the event, On to Eagle is a special weekend event for Webelos Scouts to learn about the exciting programs they can do in Boy Scouting.

Want to learn more? Check out www.ThreeHarborsScouting.org/OnToEagle for more information from the BSA.

If we were to proceed with this event, we’d need a minimum of two (2) parent chaperones to commit, an SPL to lead the event, and a minimum of two or three scouts interested in participating. In addition, we’d need to commit to what we could teach younger scouts (i.e, char cloth making, rope tying, orienteering, etc.).

Reply if interested and we can discuss registration and other details when applicable.

Thanks.
Cordially,
Mr. D.
