Camp Somers ATV Trip: December 15-17, 2017


Registration is now open
Registration deadline is Friday December 8, 2017
ATV slots are limited to 8 per session

Scouts who are 13 years or older can sign up to ride ATVs.  Scouts under 13 years will work on an activity that uses their scout skills to help complete rank requirements.

There will be 2 ATV sessions.  Each session can take a maximum of 8 riders so space is limited. For each session, the first 8 scouts to register and hand in their registration form and check on time will be given a slot. Scouts will be wait listed if a session fills up. Parents may sign up to ride ATVs but scouts will be given first priority.  The Saturday session includes a full training session for new riders.  The Sunday session includes a refresher course for scouts who have previously taken the full training session.

See the trip web page for details

March is the time for welcoming the new Boy Scouts who are bridging over from Cub Scouts. We’ll be going on our annual New Scout Trip to Camp NoBeBoSco. This trip is an important introduction to Troop 74 for new scouts and their parents. Veteran scouts will have an opportunity to complete rank requirements while being a mentor to the new scouts.

New scouts are required to have a parent attend with them for this first trip. It’s a great way for new scouts to ease into the program and for parents to learn about Boy Scouts first hand and get all of their questions answered from adult leaders.

Veteran scouts will arrive at NoBeBoSco on Friday night and sleep in tents for the weekend. New scouts and their parents will arrive Saturday morning and stay overnight in a heated cabin

To help offset the cost of membership, each scout who participated in this year’s fundraiser will receive a $34.25 credit (25% of the fee) for every $200 in total sales he raised in take-home popcorn sales and his share of the Show & Sells.

Please submit your forms and payment by the PLC meeting on Wednesday, November 29, 2017. Or, you may drop it in Mr. Kamper’s mailbox.  If you do not renew on time, your membership will expire on December 31, 2017.
