What activities should we be doing next year?

Have you had ideas about what the troop should be doing?
Have your heard other troops doing something that you wished our troop would do?
Something fun, exciting, interesting, helpful, challenging, etc... but have never told us???
Here's your chance.
Put a comment on this post before August 20th and we will consider your reccomendations during our Summer council meeting the end of August.  You can post annonomously or take credit for the great idea!
If you've gotten the idea from something that you've seen online, give us a link so that we can check it out.
No Ideas are bad ideas.  
Be as specific as you can so that we understand what you want to do.
Remember a Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful ... you know it.

(Next to Pierce playground) Mainly need help 2-4 from a few people with games and quick clean up after. If any one can help us with set up at 9am too would be nice, but mainly the afternoon, 2-4pm. Besides the satisfaction of helping a local non-profit group, you will receive a free 3-scoop ice cream sundae for your work. Please contact Mr. McKeon and let him know if you can help.

Summer Camp Packing List

Summer Camp is only 3 weeks away!
Time to consider what you are going to pack

Packing Suggestions Link from Hidden Valley camp

For you first timers, it is recommended that you have a footlocker type case to pack your gear in.
We purchased ours at the Raynham WalMart last year for around $16.
Make sure you label your footlocker and your gear.
We'll schedule a drop off time at Mr. Lamoureux's home on Saturday the 4th.



Also Mosquito netting is highly recommended.  You will be sleeping in a platform tent with no screens.  We purchased ours at Dick's Sporting Goods last year.
