Scouts worked on their Cyber Chip, advancements and played a game outside. Your Scouts will need to discuss online safety with you to complete this Cyber Chip exercise.
We are hoping to have a campout in April. Details to be determined.
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
