Troop Meeting - 7:30 (Dragon Patrol arrive at 7:15 for set up)

  • Meeting agenda
  • This meeting will focus on activities to get us ready for the Klondike. Can we hoist the fully packed sled into the air without spilling anything??? Check out the guide to see what else we will be doing. 
  • Remember your $1 weekly dues.

Due this week:

  • Final signups for the Klondike Derby!! Register online or sign up with the Scribe.


  • Need a position of responsibility time for advancement? See Mr. Pullen about volunteering to coordinate an upcoming camp.
  • It was AWESOME to see so many of you at the meeting last week. Some of you Life Scouts have been inspired to finish those requirements, some of you are interested in going to Philmont (don't wait too long to sign up or the slots will be filled!), and all participated in our first patrol vote--troop citizenship in action!  Mr. Weissert and Mr. Pullen are working hard on organizing all your votes based on the goals of mixing up the ages, and having 3 equal sized patrols. Hopefully we'll have the results this week!

Summer Opportunity: Join Camp Staff!

Join Camp Staff - Share the Adventure 

Are you tired of doing the same old routine every summer?  Did you know that the Laurel Highlands Council operates four Scout camps at Heritage Reservation including Cub Scout, Boy Scout and high adventure programs, a Boy Scout program at Camp Seph Mack as well as winter camp for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts at Heritage Reservation?  Each of these offers opportunities for a variety of summer camp staff jobs.  Most Scout camp counselors are at least 16 years of age, but the Boy Scout and Cub Scout camps have a limited number of jobs for 15 year olds with previous Counselor in Training experience.  The high adventure program employs young people who are at least 18 years of age.  

You can help other scouts with their summer camp adventure AND earn an income!

** These are both offered by the Council/District and not a Troop 65 event, but this is a great way to continue your scouting experience for those interested. We will not be participating as a troop, but individuals are welcome to sign up. **

Training: Indoor and Outdoor Leader Training

Posted by bradcraft on Jan 16 2015 - 3:09pm

DISTRICT TRAINING OPPORTUNITY: For this training, you will sign up directly as an individual.

Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific Training is designed to give adult troop leaders the knowledge they need to lead a successful Boy Scout Troop.  The course discusses the fundamental principles, aims, and goals of Scouting, the organization of a Boy Scout troop and the leadership roles (both youth and adult), and the Patrol Method.  While this training is required for Scoutmaster and ASMs, it is open to any adults and leaders and is a great way to learn more about leadership in the troop.  Additionally, the outdoor leader training will prepare you to attend and help lead outdoor activities and High Adventure outings.
