Troop Tribune for 07-06-17

Successful Philmont trip and Summer Camp!

THANK YOU to ALL OF THE SCOUTERS that help make June a very successful month for the Troop.  We could not have had a successful month without the efforts of our adult volunteers.  And thank you to the many Scouts that went on the trips (and to those brave few Scouts that attended both events!!!).  Well done to all.

This Week’s Meeting Theme

This week’s meeting theme is team building events!  Our Philmont crews learned several team building exercises during their treks and would like to share them with the troop!

Next Outing

Yes, it’s time to begin looking towards our July camp out!  This month we will be canoeing/kayaking July 21-23rd.  Campout will be held at Greenacres Canoe and Kyak out of Harrison, OH and cost is $45.  Note:  To kayak or canoe in a single person vessel, you must be registed with the troop with a recent swim test (yes, we warned you!).  If you are not a swimmer and want to attend, you must be in a kayak or canoe with an adult swimmer.  Sign-ups begin this week and end next week.
