NEW SCOUT PATROL NAMES

Good Morning Everyone,

I'd like to welcome our two new patrols into the troop.  The Nuclear Ninjas and the Fighting Falcons conducted their first patrol meeting and are on their ways.  I'd like to thank Peter Szatcha as one troop guide and Owen Smith who stepped up to the second troop guide.  Thanks for your support to start these young scouts out on the right step towards a successful scouting experience.

GOOOOOOD MORNING CAMPEEERS!

This 2018 Merit Badge Schedule has been released.  The perquisites and details on Trailblazer (for new scouts) has not been completed yet but here's the schedule.  Start looking through the schedule and discuss with your fellow scouts which Merit Badges you want to go after.  We will be filling out Merit Badge selection at the April 17th Troop Meeting.

I hope to have the  perquisites, new scout details and cost done by then.

YIS,

2018 Summer Camp Merit Badge

The final list of Merit Badges offered at Makajawan Scout Reservation for Summer Camp.  There are 55 Merit Badges and awards that a scout can earn as well as the Trailblazer Program that all of the new scouts will take part in.  The final schedule and prerequisites are not out yet but I'd like everyone to start thinking about your merit badges you want to take.  Scouts going on high adventure in the next year should keep that in mind when signing up: Canoeing/Kayaking for Northern  Tier and small boat sailing for Seabase.  All new scouts, along with trailblazer, will have a chance for 3 mer

New Scout & Pedro Trail hike details

Our New Scout Campout begins at 10am at MIGISI campsite D-A.  We’ll help start to scouts off toward their first rank, go for a short hike and have some good food   

There has been a lack of interest in the hike on the Pedro Trail so we are postponing the hike for a later date this spring.

Look forward to seeing everyone Saturday

CLIMB KZOO Details!

I hear that the message might have been missed yesterday.  For all everyone going to Climb Kalamzoo, everyone needs to fill out the online waiver (http://www.climbkalamazoo.org/online-waiver) before you depart Friday.  Once completed, please contact me. 

 

Also, we are staying in the fort at Camp Rota-Kiwan.  The cabins are enclosed bunk houses but do not have heat or electricity.  The main lodge does have power and heat though.  Scouts will be sleeping in the bunk houses and should pack for the colder weather.

Climb Kzoo Waiver Form Needed

Good Evening Everyone,

For all my climbers, I need each of you to have a parent/guardian to fill out a waiver form.  This is a form for Climb Kalamazoo and not a boy scout form.  If you have filled one out before, it can't be more than one year old.  We went to Climb K-zoo over 2 years ago.

Here's the link

Please let me know once you've completed your waivers.

Thanks

Mr. Arango

New Scout Camp Out!!

The New Scout Camp Out needs your help!!!!

The soon to be named 6th grade patrol will have their first camp out and we need the whole troop to play some part in the event to make it successful for our newest scouts.  We need scouts to help teach fire safety, knots, explain the outdoor code, knife safety and much more.  If you can only come out for the day, your support is always welcome.

For those going on the Pedro Trail Hike the same day, we will do the last 1.5 miles with the new scouts and you can join us afterwards.
