Summer Camp Thoughts...

Posted by jaypullen on Jul 2 2015 - 11:27am

Hello Scout Families,

Wow, what a great week last week!  I hope everyone has recovered from a great summer camp.  My brain is still constantly replaying moments from the week.  We had a lot of great things happen.  A lot of great things that many times go unnoticed or overlooked, but are in actuality the reason I believe that scouting is so important. 

No Meeting This Week - Happy 4th of July!

Posted by carolecraft on Jun 30 2015 - 7:43am

We will not meet this week due to the 4th of July holiday.


  • Remember to sign up online or email Billy R if you can help with his Eagle project tomorrow, July 1. He needs responses today to make final arrangements for the workday, lunches, and driving. The project location is about an hour away; rides are available. 
  • If you went home from summer camp with items that are not yours, please bring them to the meeting next week.

This week is all about packing and loading the trailer for summer camp.  Bring your packed bag so we can load the trailer.  First the patrol leaders will be checking the bags for the members of their patrol to make sure everyone is truly prepared for a fun and safe week.  Then we'll load everything into the trailer.  A small advance group will be taking the trailer up to camp on Saturday to prepare our site, so YOU MUST bring the gear you are taking to camp to the meeting.  There won't be room in all the cars for everyone's gear so don't forget!

IMPORTANT: Medications for Summer Camp

Posted by carolecraft on Jun 15 2015 - 7:50am

If your scout is bringing medications to summer camp, please be sure they are in original packaging/prescription bottles and labeled with the scout's name. This goes for over-the-counter meds (nasal sprays, benedryl, etc.) as well as prescription meds. Please also put the meds in a plastic, zip-top bag with the scouts name on it. Mrs. Slocum will be collecting all medications on Sunday at Howe School before departure. Thank you!

Which Patrol can pack the best footlocker???

Posted by jaypullen on Jun 8 2015 - 3:37pm

This week is the last week of our First Aid theme. 

  1. We will be putting together personal first aid kits, which fulfill a 2nd class requirement, and will also be good to have at summer camp.
  2. We will also have a patrol competition to see which patrol gets the honor of first pick for tent location at the campsite.  Here’s the deal:
    • Each patrol talk among yourselves and bring in a completely packed bag or footlocker for summer camp.  Bring everything you will need for camp.  Ms Craft made an announcement on the website and attached a packing list.  We’ll use that as the benchmark to do the judging. 
    • The most thoroughly packed bag (or locker) without having too much stuff will win.  To be clear, we only want one pack per patrol, so patrol leaders, you will want to either work together with your patrols, or get a volunteer to bring in their stuff.  Whichever patrol is judged to have the best packed bag or footlocker, those members will get to be the first to pick which tent they are sleeping in for the week!

LAST CALL for Class B T-shirts

Posted by carolecraft on Jun 7 2015 - 10:39pm

If you haven't brought in red T-shirts for Mr. and Mrs. Neuhaus to screenprint with our troop logo, you still have time -- until this Friday, June 12, at 9:00 p.m.  Scouts need red Class B shirts for summer camp, for their uniform shirt throughout the summer, and for other events through the year. 

Shirts should be plain front (no pocket). Red is our official Class B color, but you can bring other colors (no black), too, if you wish. Remember to write your name in sharpie marker in the inside hem or on the tag of each shirt. 

Bring your shirts to the Neuhaus home by Friday night. Please call beforehand to make sure Mr. Neuhaus is home. 

Completed shirts will be returned on Thursday, June 18, so scouts have them for summer camp.
