August 29: First Den Meetings of the Year!


Picnic Tables at Lowes YMCA on Joe Knox Ave

With our ongoing focus on providing a wonderful Scouting experience to all our Scouts with safety in mind, we will continue to meet outdoors this fall.

For any new scouts, you’ll be able to complete a Youth Application during this time if you need one.  Turning in the Youth Application starts the process with the Scouts BSA Council to get your Scout set up in Scoutbook, which is our primary communications and advancement management tool. 

Also, for those that did not get your Neckerchiefs during the Awards Ceremony in May, we will have them ready for you at this meeting.  

Lastly, we will be collecting annual dues as well.  This is important so that we can pay for Handbooks, Camping Expenses, Pinewood Derby Car Kits, Annual Registration with Scouts BSA, Advancement Belt Loops & Pins, and supplies.

Welcome Back for Returning Scouts, and Welcome to the Pack for New Scouts!

WEBELOS Camporee Fall 2022

September 24 & 25

A WEBELOS requirement is to attend at least one event with the Troop before advancing at the Blue & Gold banquet next year. There are only 2 Camporees offered – one in the spring, and one in the fall.

The Troop will arrive on Friday night to set up camp.  Our Webelos Scouts will arrive Saturday morning at Van Hoy Campground to join the Troop for the remainder of the event.

You will need both full Class A and Class B uniforms, and closed-toe shoes/boots.  Please plan on eating breakfast before arrival, and pack a lunch for Saturday.  We will have dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday with the troop.

This should be a scout/parent only adventure.  Each scout must fill out part A and B of the health form before arriving at the campsite.  A doctor’s signature is not required for this event.  The forms will be collected and kept together for inspection.

Cost is:

  • $30 per Scout ($15 event registration + $15 for food with the Troop)
  • $35 per Adult Leader ($15 event registration + $20 for food with the Troop)
  • $25 per parent ($5 event registration + $20 for food with the Troop)
