Leader Specific Training on February 6!

Every Youth Deserves a Trained Leader! Trained leaders can deliver a Scouting program that is fun, well organized and will instill the values of the Scout Oath and Law for the rest of a boy’s life.

We will be offering Leader Specific training at the Salvation Army (1000 17th Ave S) on Saturday, February 6, starting at 10am. The class will go until 2:30pm. Lunch and snack items will be available for purchase at the Salvation Army snack bar.

The final training necessary for leaders to be considered trained is Basic Outdoor Leader Training.  The District will be offering that training at the Trail to First Class campout at Log Gulch Campground on April 17.  A future post will discuss that training, but mark your calendar!

Papa Paul Klondike results

Greetings from the Camping Committee….

I am finally recovering from the Plague that I am sure Kyle Roberts gave to me at Camporee…..

We all had a wonderful time at the Papa Paul Klondike with almost 2 feet of snow and I think the boys gained some skills in winter survival as well. We has a record attendance at 127 people with boys and adults. I much appreciate all the help each Troop Leadership gave the Committee and look forward to seeing you again at Spring Camporee,which is tentatively set to be at Aspen Grove campground in Lincoln,MT. Cost will be the usual $10.00 per.

Congratulations go out to Troop 14 for placing both 1st and 2nd in the overall events winning $175.00 in Visa Gift Cards

Troop 26 won 3rd at $50.00 gift card and Troop 4 with 4th $50.00 gift card

Troop 151 had the fastest time in sled racing taking home the 1940’s wood saw which they generously gave to Papa Paul…..

Troop 4 won SKITINABOX……a great show as were all of the Skits

Troop 7 won the Dutch Oven contest with a delicious Peach Oven Bake recipe winning $50.00 Visa card

Look for these to be mailed to you from the District Office

Klondike is nearly here !

Greeting to all scouts going to Klondike. We are advising you to bring drinking water to the camp. There is lots of water there for most things but the water has not been tested for drinking this year. It is PROBABLY OK as it has passed every year. I just have to forward this information.

Also I have been informed that the new cabins will not have their heat operational as of yet. We will have a warming area for cold boys and adults. We are also providing an area to dry clothes.
