Scouts got to see Mr. Hill's boat and learn lots of information about boating that fulfilled 1st class requirements 6 B,C and D, worked on advancements, talked about food for the April campout, and played a game outside.
PLC will meet April 12th 5:30-7pm
We are planning to have a campout April 22-24 at Wako Beach. Details to be determined. This should be a fun one so parents may want to try this one out!
The votes were tallied and Camp Gerber looks like the winner. The dates we are going will be 4th of July week. Mr. Sparkman will send out more details and a survey for you to fill out. Weekend camp at Camp Tamarack would be the weekend of July 22-24.
This leads to our next request. We will need at least 2 adult volunteers to help organize and attend summer camp with the Scouts this year. If you are able to help out with summer camp please let us know.
Finally, regarding summer activities, I have had a number of Scouts ask about our plans for a high adventure trip this summer. As of today, there are no plans for a high adventure trip this summer. In talking to Dylan about this, he needs some adult volunteers to help plan and run a high adventure trip. For those who are not aware high adventure trips are typically higher intensity activities like white water rafting, overnight backpacking or canoeing. These trips are more demanding so Scouts need to meet minimum age and skill/rank requirements (Typically 12 years old and first class rank). If you have thoughts on a high adventure trip for the summer and can help organize and run the event, please let us know. - Eric Walsh
