Mackinac 2022 Sign-ups
We still need 10-12 scouts to attend to make our group large enough to have cooks. The Covid testing requirements have been dropped.
This will be our 60th season of service to the state of Michigan, and we are looking forward to a great week.
Our week of service will be July 16 - July 23, 2022. The fee this year will be $225. First payment of $75 will be due at sign up, and $75 due at first practice, balance due at last practice.
All Scouts must be at least 2nd class and approved by their Scoutmaster. A parent must be with each Scout, so they can sign the application agreement. We will also need a small photo of each Scout, and an up to date health form. A copy of the form is preferred. The adult fee this year will be $120.
If you have any questions, contact Jerry Ingram
Summer will be here before we know it. Mr. Sparkman has compiled a list of options for Scout summer camp this year. The Troop will decide where and when to go based on your responses.
If your Scout is interesting in attending summer camp, please complete the survey that was emailed to you and select your preferences from the options listed.
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
