Weather Merit Badge

Scouts working on the Weather MB can find what has been covered so far on a new page on this website. If you go here you will find what was covered in our introduction session in April, as well as what we covered in our first class in June.

You can work on this merit badge at your own pace. The study guide and worksheet are posted on the merit badge home page. Additional resource links will be posted there too. As you complete assignments you can turn them in to your counselor.

Keep a weather eye open!!

Have Ideas? Let Us Know!!!

Submit Your Ideas!!

Summer isn't just for summer vacation, it is the start of our program planning effort.

Every year the troops asks every Scout to submit ideas for camp outs, summer camp, troop meetings, service projects, fund-raisers and other interesting events and activities. These ideas are collected and then put together by the Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) in to the draft program plan for the upcoming Scout year (August 2016 through July 2017). This method allows the boys to drive the planning process, while giving every Scout a chance to participate in the process and have his ideas heard.

Visit this link before June 24th to submit your ideas for the 2016-2017 troop calendar. All ideas will be compiled and then discussed by the PLC at its planning meeting on July 9th.

Don't miss out on your chance to have your voice heard!

Summer Camp Shake Down

Posted on Jun 14 2016 - 11:59am

July 9th is Shake Down!!

Going to summer camp? Well then, you will want to attend the shake down on July 9th. What is shake down? This is where each Scout shows up with everything on the packing list, fully packed in his footlocker and ready to leave for camp.

Patrol Leaders and Scoutmasters will go through each Scout's gear to make sure they have everything needed for camp. If anything is missing the Scout will have a few days to get those items.

Make sure you plan ahead and make time to gather, check and pack your gear. Don't procrastinate. Get your check list and start packing today!

Program Planning Meeting 2016-17

Posted on Jun 14 2016 - 11:58am

Troop Program Planning Meeting 7/9

It is that time of year again. The time to plan the 2016-2017 Scout year. Every summer the Scouts take several weeks to research the things they like to do all year, develop these ideas in to suggestions, gather all those suggestions from the Scouts in the troop and develop the annual program plan. This is literally a "bottom's up" process to allow every Scout a voice in what we do as a troop, so this is YOUR chance to submit your input.

The meeting to compile all of the ideas gathered during the month of June will be on Saturday, July 9th from 2-4pm in Festival Hall. If you hold a leadership position you must attend. All other Scouts may attend but your attendance is optional.

Put this event on your calendar now. Don't miss your chance to have your voice heard.
