Summer Camp Sign-Up - 2018 Program Guide Attached

Posted by kshultz on Apr 11 2018 - 1:42pm

BSA Summer Camp is the Troop’s most highly recommended event of the year and it will give new Scouters the chance to complete a very large amount of their "Trail to First Class" requirements during Summer Camp.   Last summer, we had several brand new Scouts go to Summer Camp where they had a fun time and made a remarkable amount of progress (which helped them this year during the school year).  OLDER SCOUTS -- there are specific activities for OLDER SCOUTS such as the Water Odyssey, Advanced Sailing, and the Search and Rescue MB.

Summer Camp this year is June 24 through June 30 at Camp Constantin on Possum Kingdom Lake. The sign-up deadline is April 30, 2018.   Please plan accordingly as we don't want any Scout to miss out on this wonderful and very inexpensive opportunity.  If you already know that your Scout wants to go to Summer Camp, please sign-up using the Event Registration feature on the right side of this website. The cost will be $320. NOTE:  If your son sold at least $500.00 in popcorn during the Troop's Popcorn fundraiser last year, your Scout qualifies for a $25.00 discount on the camp out fee.  To take advantage of the discount, please go to the "Online Payments" tab on the left side of this website and choose the option with the discount.   Please review the merit badge offerings on the attached Camp Constantin 2018 Program Guide. Scouts need to list 5 merit badges and T-shirt size in the notes section next to their sign up.  

Our summer camp coordinator, Mrs. Householder, will take that information and sign-up your Scout on the Camp's website.  Information on the "Trail to First Class" and "First Year Campers" programs can be found beginning on page 10.  Please note that some merit badges have prerequisites or AGE requirements and many have off-site requirements that should be done before summer camp (e.g, visit a fire station for the Fire Safety optional merit badge) so take your scout and send him to camp with a photo of him satisfying the off-site requirement.   The boys will pay for the kits for those merit badges with kits (e.g, leatherworks, metal works, basketry, etc). at the Camp Store at Summer Camp so you can pack extra money with your camper to pay for those kits.  If you have any questions, please contact ASM Householder.  Thanks!

Eagle Scout Court of Honor April 8th, 3:00pm. Help Needed at 2:00 pm.

Posted by kshultz on Apr 7 2018 - 10:03pm

Note: All PATROL LEADERS and current PORs arrive at 2pm (see below). Please RSVP using Event Registration.

 
Dear Troop,
 
This SUNDAY April 8, 2018 at promptly 3pm our Troop will conduct our EAGLE COURT OF HONOR at ST MARKS SCHOOL OF TEXAS. Please sign up using Event Registration so a head count can be obtained for refreshment planning. During this ceremony we will recognize FIVE of our Scouting brothers in their amazing rise of accomplishments and advancement to Eagle Scout. 
 
Our five honorees are: 
- Jake Horigome-Pigg
- Eduardo Ludwig Bernardo
- Ethan Pittson
- Ayush Saha
- Jackson Singhal
 
I could not be more proud of these Scouts and of our Troop as a whole. I know that you want to recognize them as well. 
 
So, in order to help make this ceremony a special memory I've asked the current PATROL LEADERS to assemble into a FLAG CORPS and lead the flag ceremony. I've also asked other current PORS to volunteer as ushers and guest attendants to help the ceremony run smoothly. All participants should arrive at 2pm for rehearsal. This was announced at Monday's meeting and this memorandum should serve as reminder to all Scouts, Adult Leaders, and parents.
 
In addition to our honoring our five Eagle Scouts we will be joined by United States Congressman Pete Sessions. I had the privilege to meet Congressman Sessions at Wood Badge and he agreed to participate in our Eagle Ceremony, which is a tremendous honor for our Troop. 
 
Pete joined Scouting in Waco Texas in 1964 as a cub scout. Attending Scout Camp each summer and becoming a Life Scout and an Order of the Arrow member, prior to moving with his family to Kensington, Maryland in 1969. On February 10, 1970 he received his Eagle Scout Award from Troop 225 in Chevy Chase. In 1971, he became a Brotherhood Member of the Order of the Arrow.
 
In 1986, Pete became Scoutmaster for Troop 88 in Bridgewater, New Jersey. He began a job of rebuilding the Troop and succeeded in producing 13 Eagle Scouts and leading the Troop to Philmont Scout Ranch in 1989 and 1991 and three one day hikes.
 
Looking forward to a terrific turnout at this once in a lifetime ceremony recognizing our troop members accomplishments. See all PATROL LEADERS and PORs at 2pm for rehearsal.
 
YIS,
 
SM Birdwell
