Hike and campout at Mashamoquet Brook State Park

Posted on May 5 2021 - 11:26pm

We had a fun 6 mile hike and campout!   We saw Wolf Den, Indian Chair, a youth campground we might want to revisit, did Scout skills, practiced meal cooking, and learned how many marshmallows you can put on one stick.    This was a first campout with us for 4 of our Scouts and they did great!

Time to Pick your Merit Badges

Posted on Apr 22 2021 - 12:11am

We need your Merit Badge selections for Camp by 4/28   when we sign you up!

For our cross overs from this year and last:

  • We'll sign you up for the First Class Path which will fill up most of your day, and focus on rank advancements, Swimming Merit Badge, and one Handycraft Merit Badge  (Leatherwork, Art, Basketry, and a few others offered once you get to camp).
  • See the writeup on the second page:  Program Guide  (Page 22).
  • And we recommend you select something at 7PM, and Astronomy at 8PM (That's a good one for new campers).

Print that MB list, put your name on it,  circle your selections (First Class Path for our newest Scouts), and get it to Mr Miller ASAP.   You can scan and email it,  take a picture with your phone and text it, drop it at our Meeting on Sunday if we don't get rained out.

Troop Camping May 1 to May 2nd

Posted on Apr 22 2021 - 12:08am

We'll be going Camping May 1st to May 2nd at Mashomoquet Brook State Park in Pomfret CT  (5 minutes past Camp Webster).

It will just be for one night from Saturday until Sunday to give us a taste of camping.  Highly recommended for our new Scouts.

You will need your family to transport you, and if you are one of our newest Scouts you must have a parent staying with your Scout overnight.

Look for more details in an email, and we'll need to know by this Sunday who is going.

Stay tuned!
