The Troop's Court of Honor is this coming Tuesday, May 26th starting at 6:30 pm

Posted by R.Monette on May 23 2015 - 7:41am
  • We will be starting a little earlier at 6:30 pm to allow time to set up the desserts and beverages for after the Court of Honor. 
  • With your supervision, the boys are being asked to make (or bring) their favorite dessert to share with everyone.  Or if they prefer to bring drinks, that will be great as well.

Required Forms for Summer Camp Attendees

Posted by R.Monette on May 13 2015 - 5:37am

All Participants must register for outings and pay deposits ahead of time (Scouts and Adults)

Posted by R.Monette on May 13 2015 - 5:36am
  • In the past the Troop had boys sign up for events and not attend, as a result a deposit system was started.
  • The Troop now collects a small deposit to ensure participants are serious about attending (in most cases, this only cover a portion of the cost the Troop actually pays).
  • "Register by dates" have been added to each outing on the Troop's Calendar to try to avoid this in the future.
  • These dates may change based on the number of available camp sites, or the availability of slots for participants, and other factors out of the Troops control.
  • Outing Registration is not guaranteed until the deposit is paid (signing up for an outing is just the first step).
