Goshen returned!

Reports are that Goshen was a rousing success!  We had a few sunburns and some smelly scouts, but experience is worth the extra detergent!   I’ll bet everyone got a good nights sleep Saturday night and enjoyed the miracle of air conditioning.  Thanks so much to all the adults who helped manage the process!

Facebook Group

We have a new Facebook Group that we are using for photo updates and positive anecdotes – it is located here:

It’s a closed group for privacy concerns, so send a request via the link and we’ll accept you.

High Adventure – Dolly Sods August 7,8,9,10

If you couldn’t attend before, now maybe you can!   A great opportunity for the Older Scouts only! EMAIL ME at and let’s go!  We’ll meet later this week to finalize meals and planning.

The route is set, and meal planning needs finalized.

No August outing other than Older Scout activity

Down time is Scout time!

Take advantage of your relief from school schedules to work on your requirements and merit badges.  Let us know how we can help!

World Scout Jamboree

The WSJ is this summer at the Bechtel Reserve in WVA.  If you would like to visit for a day, see below link.  Max, Thomas, Matthew, and Mr Rodger are going this year!

 Service Opportunities

Notes from the Senior Patrol Leader:

– PATROL LEADERS – It is your responsibility to touch base with your Patrols and be sure that they are paying attention to the Skills Training and working on their Advancement

– CELL PHONE USAGE – Not in the troop meetings, except with very few exceptions when they are being used for advancement or merit badges.


– Its Summertime, and the SPL has decided that neckerchiefs are not required, so leave them at home and stay cool!  

– BRING YOUR SCOUTBOOKS TO THE MEETINGS!  Opportunities for Advancement are being wasted just because Scouts don’t remember their books.

Stem Committee:

Contact Mr. Steenstra at the troop meeting if you would like to be on it!  There are lots of great opportunities around the area.
