Skymont Summer Camp – June 6-13
The first Skymont deposit is due February 4 and is $75 for Scouts and $30 for Adults. The total cost for Skymont this year will be $190 for Scouts and $95 for Adults. These costs are being subsidized by the Troop by $115 per Scout and $65 per Adult, so we encourage everyone to consider attending summer camp to take advantage of this great deal and make some progress on earning merit badges. Please note that any adults attending Skymont need to be registered with Scouts BSA. More information will be provided at the February 4 Court of Honor, and you can check out their website at this link: Skymont
Scout Sunday on February 9
Please make plans for Scouts and their families to attend the church service at Faith Presbyterian on Sunday, February 9 to celebrate Scout Sunday. We will also take the Troop photo that morning at 10 am in the chapel (don’t be late or you won’t be in the photo!), and then attend the contemporary church service after that in Faith Hall. Scouts should wear Class A uniforms.
