Troop 103 Updates

2016 February Skills Olympics / Camporee Prep Campout

AxeGood Day All Scouts, Parents, and Leaders,

Attached you will find the permission slip for the upcoming February campout at Carter's Grove. As always, mind the weather reports and make sure you pack accordingly.

We will start taking perm slips and checks tonight for those wishing to attend and your last opportunity to get a slip turned in will be next week on the 15th.

Please keep in mind, if you are coming to the Camporee in March, this campout will help get you and your patrol ready for Camporee competition.

Please get your forms filled and turned in so we can save you a slot and properly plan for food on the campout.

Any leaders and/or parents wanting to participate and help out on the campout please fill out a perm slip and then let me know at one of the next two meetings so I can put you on my list.

Thank you all and we'll see you tonight.

2016 Summer Camp

Camp Shenandoah LogoScout, Parents, and Leaders,

Good Evening All. I mentioned Summer Camp 2016 to our Scouts during our last meeting of 2015 and then again during our first meeting of 2016 last week. Hopefully it is no surprise to all of our parents that we have already begun talking about Summer Camp. We will be having awesome fun at the camp in about 6 months from right now!!!

We are headed up the road to Camp Shenandoah this Summer for some exciting adventures in the mountains west of Staunton, Virginia. Some of our older Scouts remember going to this camp several years back and having a great time.

You will find the Summer Camp 2016 information sheet attached along with the sign-up sheet to fill out and turn in to Beth Robles or myself. I will continue to mention Summer Camp to the Scouts ever week from here on out as we continue to prepare for our Summer Camp Adventure. Please let me know if you have any questions along the way. I look forward to some great times with your Scouts this Summer as they learn and grow in Scouting.

We do still have a few slots left for adults who may be interested in going with us this year. Let me know if you have interest please.


Have a great night and we'll see you all very soon.

Cooking Merit Badge

Cooking Merit Badge PatchScouts taking the Cooking Merit Badge (ver. 2007)

This follows the comments made at last night’s meeting.

Those of you who started the Cooking Merit Badge before January 1, 2015 (about 40 of you) should have made substantial progress on the merit badge.

As Scouts have come to me to sign off their requirements, I have learned that many have not paid attention to the requirements of the merit badge, thinking that cooking a meal on a campout or on a high adventure trek would be sufficient.

Gentlemen, you will need to read the requirements more carefully.
