Everyone (parents too) is invited to the BBQ planning meeting starting at 6:30 at Dennis Longnecker’s house. Dennis will provide Burgers, Hot Dogs, condiments and everyone else provide something else (things like Salads, Chips, Drinks, Cookies, etc.)
During and after the eating, the scouts will work on the activity schedule for the 2016-2017 scouting year. The troop is Scout led, so this is the time the Scouts get to pick what they want to do! (But you can’t plan eCamp every weekend!)
Come…be heard and share what YOU want to do!
Two scouts from Troop 101 have just completed National Youth Leadership Training at Camp Sheppard, in the Chief Seattle Council. Alex A and Michael R attended the challenging, week-long course that is aimed to improve a scout’s ability to demonstrate leadership for his troop. The course focused on team development, types of leadership, and improving the participant’s ability to cope with common and unique situations. Congratulations to Alex and Michael!
This year, Troop 101 is going to Summer Camp at Camp Parsons!
Camp Parsons is situated on the Olympic Peninsula “where the mountains meet the sea”. This remarkable setting offers the rare experience of canoeing on glassy salt water, while gazing along a densely forested shoreline. Camp Parsons is one of the oldest Scout camps in America, providing wilderness adventure to Scouts and Scouters since 1919. Special features include the climbing tower, 16-position rifle and archery ranges, and the Fort Dukabush museum. Swimming, canoeing, and sailing in the saltwater aquatics area are other popular activities.
It is hard to believe that the end of the school year is upon us. With the end of the school year, we are also celebrating the last regular troop meeting until our planning session on September 1st. To celebrate, we will hold this Thursday’s meeting at in Lacey. The park is located at 6729 Pacific Avenue SE in Lacey. We will be cooking hot dogs (and veggie dogs) as well as having some chips and snacks. Everyone needs to bring their own beverages and plates/utensils. We will meet at 6:30 as usual.
The main business for the meeting is troop elections.
We hope to see all of you out for the meeting on Thursday. Because we will be in a celebration, scouts can wear class B (troop t-shirts) if they wish.
The weekend of May 13, 14 and 15, 2016 we will be having our Trail To First Class camp session at Millersylvania State Park. Millersylvania is an 842 acre park 10 miles south of Olympia, Washington. The park has 6 miles of trails, old-growth cedar and fir trees, and also features camping and 3,300 feet of freshwater shoreline on Deep Lake. The address is 12245 Tilley Road S., Olympia, WA 98512
We will be camping in tents this year. This is an annual Troop Campout with the purpose of having the older Scouts teach the younger Scouts various skills as required by Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class Ranks.
We will be meeting at the Albertsons parking lot and be leaving Friday at 6 p.m. We will leave camp before lunch and should be back in Lacey by 11 am or so.
