This should come from the SPL. Parents - if your scout is not listed, it is the scout's responsibility to contact the SPL and have the SPL contact Mrs. King to update this information. The scouts need to take responsibility for this communication. Thank you!

ANNOUNCING: SUMMER CAMP AT CAMP GERONIMO - June 24-July 2 -- It's time to finalize sign-ups and pick merit badges!

Posted by tking on May 16 2017 - 8:09am

As of Saturday 4/29 we are exactly 8 weeks from the day we go to Camp Geronimo for a GREAT weeks of Scouting!

There is a LOT to do between now and then.  Please read carefully.

  1. Declare that you are going!  If you plan to go and have not signed up on this website, please do so! Right now we are holding down 25 slots for Scouts (and we can get more if needed).  If we need less than those 25 slots we have to reduce our number by May 15 to avoid losing money.
  2. Make payments.  The total cost is $400.  By now you should have paid at least $200 and be at the $300 mark by May 16.  See Mr. Oless for payments.  If you are planning to use money earned doing flags in 2016-2017, we count each Flag event from June 14, 2016 to Memorial Day 2017 in the yearly totals and then figure out how much each Scout earned.  That money can be applied to what's owed by the 1st or 2nd week of June, in time for the final payment.  (If you have other money in your Troop account you can get it applied to what you owe at any time.  Just let Mr. Oless know.)
  3. PICK YOUR MERIT BADGES!  At Geronimo you register for the merit badges ahead of time and go to camp with a schedule for all your morning merit badges.  Please fill out the attached form to rank your merit badge preferences.  Note that the longer you wait the more classes fill up and you won't get what you want.  As an example, Geocaching is already filled up.  Nearly everything else still has room, but that might not be true if you keep putting it off.  Please give a paper copy of the form to Mr. Hetrick at the meetings or scan it and email it to him at rjhetrick@gmail.com.  Note that I have also attached documents that show the schedule for the different badges, some that run on afternoons that you can sign up for when you get there, and other info.
  4. Work on merit badge prerequisites.  For many of the badges it is impossible to cover every requirement at camp.  For those you need to bring your work on certain requirements or in some case a signed note.  Completing the prerequisites before camp is the only way to earn the badge by the end of our camp week.


Please see Mr. Oless (payments) or Mr. Hetrick (merit  badges) if you have any questions.

Leaders/Parents: Please Update Youth Protection Training Certificate Posted on Web Site

Posted by tking on Apr 25 2017 - 8:17am
At last night's committee meeting, we discussed the accessibility of Youth Protection Certificates to all. We have gathered these and provided them on the web site for some time. However, it is up to the individual adult to provide them to me to publish on the web site. As of late, we are missing several or show as expired even though we know our adults have current YPT.

Could you all please take a few minutes to look at the list on the web site and find your name and review your listed certificate info?

Go to the web site and select the FILES link. Find the Youth Protection Training Certificates FOLDER and click on it for a listing of all our YPT certificates on file.  If your name is not listed, please provide me a copy of your YPT to post. If your name IS listed, check the certificate to see if it is current or an old expired certificate. If it is not current, provide me the newer copy of your YPT.

You can retrieve your YPT on the my.scouting.org web site. You can either save a copy electronically as a PDF and email it to me. Or, you can print a copy and give it to me at any troop meeting. Let's try to get this updated by June 1.

Thank you,

Terri King

June 9-11: Lava Tubes Base Camp

Posted by tking on Apr 17 2017 - 9:59am

Our June outing will be a base bamp up in the cool pines, west of Flagstaff. This will be a busy camp with orienteering rank advancement workshops, and you can earn your tote n chit and firem chit cards. On Saturday afternoon, we usually go on an orienteering course with waypoints of a mile or more with the last way point at the Lava River Cave. Be prepared for a 1.5 mile underground hike in temperatures of about 38 degrees! (Don’t forget a flashlight!) Then we will head back to camp for dinner and a campfire.
