Posted by R.Monette on Jul 26 2015 - 7:43am
  • There is still room for people on the Silverwood Trip and we be opening the trip to parents and siblings. 
  • Slots are not reserved until $15 deposit per person is paid.
  • Outing is 8/14 to 8/16
  • Scouts will have need to complete the BSA Swimmers Test after Aug. 2014 to participate in Canoeing Activities

September Outing may be camping not Mountain Man Thunder

Posted by R.Monette on Jul 26 2015 - 7:43am
  • The Council that runs Mountain Man Thunder has informed me that they may cancel the event.
  • We can still camp at the Forest Lawn SCout Reservation for $13 a person.
  • This would be a good chance to check out their facilties and see if it is a place the boys want to go for summer camp.
  • Please provide feedback on Tuesday.

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).
