March Trip this Weekend- WINTER Camping at Wah-Tut-Ca - Sign up this week!

Posted on Mar 14 2018 - 10:50pm

This weekend's camping trip will be a true Winter Camping experience.  Come and learn how to build snow shelters!  Bring snow shovels and sleds!

The March trip will be a camping weekend at Wah-Tut-Ca.  While at Wah-Tut-Ca the troop will take advantage of the weather conditions… Think SNOW!! If we have snow, we may do some sledding or other snow sports. If we don’t have snow, we’ll probably go on a hike around Wah-Tut-Ca, a nearby scout camp, or nearby state park. Patrols will also be showcasing their culinary skills in a patrol vs patrol cook-off.

This will be tent camping at a time of the year when the weather will be “variable”.  Scouts should be prepared for cold weather. Warm sleeping bags and a good mattress pad will be needed along with appropriate clothing -- see more tips on sleeping warm below.


Merit Badge Monday Next Monday - March 19th - Time to sign-up

Posted on Mar 14 2018 - 10:50pm

The next Merit Badge Monday will be on March 19th.  Please submit your requests for what merit badges you would like to work on.

Merit Badge Mondays are an opportunity for scouts to connect with merit badge counselors to start new merit badges or to complete those pervasively pesky partials that seem to proliferate profusely. 

So sign-up now and sign-up early! (and of course I know some will sign-up late)...
