Scouts practiced flag folding and raising, worked on advancements, and played a game. Our District Rep. Jacob Maxson stopped by to visit! If you were elected into the Order of the Arrow, check your email for information. You can do your ordeal at summer camp, see below for more details. Scouts should start working on their prerequisites for camp merit badges. Mr. Hill is ready to sign off and give you the forms you need to take to camp. Some of these need a month of activity (Nature), or to attend or grow something, so start them now. We are meeting outside so dress for the weather and bring a lawn chair. If it rains we will go inside.
Tent Set Up Season is here!
The tracker for tent setups is available at the link below. It’s one of the main fundraisers for the troop for the year. It can be very lucrative for the kids. We have several this week. Please check the sheet often for updates and more opportunities. Please text Mr. Dansfield for questions and updates. Times and dates may change for weather and scheduling conflicts.
Triathlon Parking Sign up!
Below is the link to the Steelhead Triathlon parking signup. This is our biggest fundraiser for the year. We will need as many of the spots filled as we can get to ensure we are successful. Sunday morning is the most vital to be fully staffed with boys and adults. We will fill the lot starting around 4:30 and be largely full by 7am. We’ll bring in lunch and snacks for those helping out. And we give credit to the adults that work, just like we do to the kids. They can use it for their registration and camp. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kurt Sparkman or Bobby Hill for more information.

Help out with Church Picnic June 16, 2023
If you have time after 1pm , stop by the Church to help set up tents to earn some service hours. Check with Mr. Dansfield upon arrival.
Mackinac coming soon! Got 2 full uniforms?
Each participant needs 2 full uniforms for Mackinac so please check what patches you have and need a duplicate of and send Mr. Walsh an email of what you need. If your position changed during the last election, please ask for the new ones and get them sewn on. Please add a parent to all emails/texts when communicating with adults for the 2 deep leadership protocol. Each Scout is responsible for their ride to Mackinac and back, a sign up spreadsheet will be shared soon to help people find rides. Keep practicing and studying!
Summer Camp at Camp Rotary: Week of July 23-29, 2023, you can do your Order of the Arrow ordeal there! Is your account red? Fill in more info!
If you recently were elected to the Order of the Arrow, you can do your ordeal during summer camp! Email Mr. Hill if interested in completing your ordeal at Rotary. You will need to inform all badge counselors that you will be missing a day for your ordeal so they can help you keep up with the requirements.
If you have gone online to register and select badges, make sure you have everything filled in! Several of our campers are showing as RED so you are missing something. Please check your registration now.
Original camp sign up info.
Fill out the “SummerCamp23” form and bring it with payment if you haven’t already! We want to get our deposits and badge selections in ASAP, since the selection window is open and some badges are already full. See other attached files for badge options and the sheet to list your selections. If you already paid, check the guardian’s email for a message from Mr. Hill or Mr. Lorenz with your link to update Scout info. After clicking on update info, scroll down and you can start selecting sessions (easier to do from a computer). Each Scout has a different link so be sure you are using the matching link for the right Scout and that auto correct/fill doesn’t put in a parent’s name where the Scout’s should be (totally not speaking from experience, oops, but easily fixable.) Just be careful not to unselect your wanted session by mistake and losing your slot. You can click “Done” any time and come back and fix anything needed later.
Please see attached links and files for more camp info. https://scoutingevent.com/272-crsbsarc2023
For adults attending summer camp, please fill out the Michigan Central Registry Clearance form and submit it. See link below.
