Aaron Williams and Wyatt Rosevear passed their Eagle Board on 10/21/21.

Congratulations on a job well done. The troop and your parents are very proud of you.

That makes 126 Eagles in our troop and four this year.

Burro Creek Backpack and Gold panning

                      Burro Creek Kaiser Spring Canyon Backpack

                                  November 5th to the 7th 2021

The troop will be going on a 3 to 4 mile backpack to Burro Creek through Kaiser Spring Canyon and camping on Burro Creek near Kaiser hot Spring, this outing is about 35 miles north of Wickenburg. This is a good hike for beginners and first time backpackers. Scouts will learn to work and cook together as patrols. We have backpacked to this historic gold mining area in the past and the scouts will get a tour of the remnants of the gold mining operation. (No one will enter any mines.) We are planning to try our hands at gold panning and have some scout skills and competitions planned. In the past we have watched bats exit an old mine at sunset.  Because of the ongoing pandemic scouts will need to bring masks, wash hands often and can only double up tents with parent’s permission.

COVID-19 -- Handle with Care (Still)

Posted by rhetrick on Aug 29 2021 - 8:41pm

We expect everyone in Scouting to follow the measures listed below, which are based on CDC guidance. Members, staff, and volunteers must also follow all federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. In addition, we have instructed local councils to consult with their local and state health departments, as well as local chartered partners, in order to implement appropriate protocols to help keep members, volunteers, and employees safe.

  • Isolate if you are sick, and do not attend any activity/meeting/event if you, anyone you live with, or anyone you have recently been around feels unwell.
  • Do not attend any activity/meeting/event if you or anyone you live with has been tested for COVID-19 or another illness and does not have the results back yet.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, wear a face covering or mask that covers your nose and mouth and stay at least 6 feet apart from people you don’t live with.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • As always, please exhibit the Scout Oath and Law as we continue to navigate a safe return to the activities we enjoy.

We have been offering access to our meetings by Zoom for some time, but no one seems to be using this feature.  We plan to discontinue this, unless anyone interested in attending this way tells us otherwise.  Contact Bob Hetrick at rjhetrick@gmail.com if you want us to still offer a Zoom feed and will take advantage of it.

Crew 2365 -- An invitation to our older boys

Posted by rhetrick on Aug 6 2021 - 10:22pm

Hello, I'm Nathan Nguyen, president of Venturing Crew 2365, the sister crew to Troop 365. As our new membership year is about to begin, I would like to invite scouts ages 14-21 to join our crew for more opportunities of high-adventure camping as well as community volunteer opportunities. Our focus is on backpacking and fun one-day activities .Joining the Venturing Crew has no additional cost to join so if you are interested, please email me at nguyen.nathan2002@gmail.com and I can help you with the joining process. I look forward to hearing from many of you guys and I'd be happy to answer any questions you have as well.

Uniform Patch Placement

Posted by rhetrick on May 26 2021 - 6:53pm

I just had a question from the parent of one of our new Scouts crossing over on patch placement.  Here is an illustration that can help.  Note that the Arrow of Light patch goes centered below the left pocket.  The right pocket is a choice.  Over your time in Scouting -- as soon as at Summer Camp! -- you will get a number of patches that can go there.  When you end up with a lot more patches to show off than you uniform can hold, that's what vests are for.



Leave No Trace guidance on sustainably collecting firewood for a campfire.

Posted by rkerr on May 15 2021 - 10:27am

Campfires can be a big part of any camping trip. In addition to knowing how to put out a fire, considering where our firewood comes from is an essential piece in having a Leave No Trace campfire. If collecting wood from the surrounding ecosystem is allowed, following the 4 D's of wood collection will help us leave minimal impact on the environment.
