Please turn these in tonight if you haven’t already. – All adults must complete youth protection to attend a troop campout. – For any youth with medication on a campout, you must have your medication in its original container and your parent or guardian must notify the scoutmaster for that campout what medications you have and when you are to take them.
Cyber Chip As a reminder to all scouts, you must recharge your Cyber Chip once a year. With your parent’s permission, go to to complete the requirements for your grade level. There will also be an opportunity this weekend for scouts to complete these activities on the campout.

Jason Clabbers Eagle Project Hello, this is Jason Clabbers and I have my eagle project April 19th and 20th. I am building 10, 6-8 foot flat wood benches for Fort Ancient.
On Friday, April 19th I am going to need a couple of older scouts and adults as this day is mainly harvesting the heavy, large trunks for my benches. I have one adult who can use a chainsaw that has proper training but I would like another as well. If anyone has proper training of a chainsaw please contact me. On Friday we will also be harvesting the wood for the legs of the bench as well.
On Saturday, April 20th, I am constructing the benches, here I would need about approximately 8 scouts and 4 adults. I will be making the legs of the bench shorter sections of the body of the bench, which will be drilled onto the bench the opposite direction in order to support the bench.
Please contact me at ( if you can come, it would be greatly appreciated.
