Summer camp program guidance

Posted on Mar 19 2014 - 12:20pm

General info:

  • Plan your week to have fun!
  • Scouts select their merit badges - make sure you have an interest in the topic
  • Many Eagle required merit badges are available - do not select only these as they tend to be harder and may require some time in camp doing write-ups.
  • Check pre-requisites (prior merit badges and age) to make certain you have them.
  • There are alot of water based merit badges - we have a heated pool and a somewhat warm lake in July - take advantage of this! You do need to be a blue swimmer (pass the BSA swim test).
  • Period 5 & 6 are free/open swim and water activities at the pool and lake. If you want free time, these may be the periods to choose as open.
  • Scouts do not need to fill all 6 periods but should fill at least 4 periods with merit badges. High school age scouts have more flexibility on this.
  • Understand that some merit badges will not be completed at camp and you will need to complete with a troop merit badge counselor - see program guide. For those that state they can all be completed in camp, you still need to do the work in class or at camp and have your merit badge counselor sign off by the last full day of camp.

Texting System

Posted on Jan 31 2014 - 5:42pm

The troop has set up a texting system through Redeemer's texting system to improve communications and reach the scouts (and parents) on a level they are using more than email. Redeemer has offerred for us to use their system at no cost to the troop. This will be used as another communications tool to send out troop level notices and reminders (troop meetings, camping trip sign-ups/departures, other troop level activities).

Holden's Eagle Scout Project UPDATE

Posted on Jul 31 2013 - 4:10pm

Holden has been working hard to create Welcome Home Baskets for people whose homes burned in the High Park Fire and have been rebuilt. He wants these people to know their community cares about them very much. He has collected donations from local businesses, churches, and friends and family. Yesterday he presented two of his baskets to men who lost their homes. One of the men happened to have been a Boy Scout and it was a very heartwarming experience for everyone. Holden made 25 baskets, but there were 259 homes that burned. The United Way of Larimer County is still accepting donations for this cause to continue making baskets now that Holden is done. If you would like to donate, please make checks payable to The United Way of Larimer County and put "Welcome Home Baskets" in the memo. They can be mailed to The United Way, Attn: Gordan Thibedeau, 424 Pine Street #102, Fort Collins, 80524.
