Oct. 27-29: Lake Pleasant Base Camp

Posted by tking on Oct 17 2017 - 2:38pm

This will be a base camp weekend on the shore of Lake Pleasant with a focus on the Canoeing merit badge.There will be opportunities to fish and explore and there will be a Campfire Saturday night, so prepare a skit, song or game with your Patrol to share.The Troop will bring canoes and several kayaks. This 7500 acre man-made lake contains a number of fish species including: largemouth bass, crappie, striped bass, sunfish, and channel catfish. Friday and Saturday nights we will camp lakeside. 

All Scouts need a current medical form and must be qualified as a swimmer by Boy Scouts of America.  This is the test where you demonstrated the ability to jump feet first into water over your head. Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be swum continuously. Bring water for drinking while canoeing to the camp ground, swim suits, sun screen lotion, if you have your own life jacket please bring it. If you wish to fish, bring fishing gear – anyone under the age of fourteen (14) does not need a license, otherwise bring a license.  We will be camping along the lake shore so bring a lightweight tent to share (team up) and a sleeping bag.  Life jackets will be provided but you can bring your own if desired. The troop will bring canoes; anyone wishing to bring a kayak is more than welcome. We are working on possibly having some water skiing available. We will keep you updated. The water may be a little chilly so bring several towels. A body suit or vest might be helpful against the cold.

It's that time of the year again when you need to let us know if you'll with Troop 365 for 2018 by updating your information and paying your dues.  We'll have a recharter table set up in the lobby of the Bridge on the following evenings:

  • Monday, October 16
  • Monday October 23

After October 23 we will finalize our charter, get the signatures we need, and then turn it into the Thunderbird District and then to the Grand Canyon Council.  If you haven't rechartered with us by then and want to be with us for 2017, you will need to fill out new BSA applications.

What are the fees?

  • Scouts:  $70 Add: $12 for Boys Life
  • Adult Leaders: $34.20 - you can make it an even $35 with the extra going into our Unit Scholarship fund!

Note:  nearly all of the increase in Scout dues and every bit of the increase in adult dues is a direct reflection of increases in the BSA registration fees for both youth and adult volunteers and in the insurance fee.  Troop dues were increased by a small amount to get the price for youth up to a round number.

For Scouts and Adults in the Order of the Arrow: $10

How can I pay?
Cash, check, or funds in personal unit accounts

Do I have to pay at the meeting or can I pay by mail?  
Yes.  Send check with names that are being covered to Bob Hetrick, 4934 W. Tierra Buena Ln., Glendale AZ  85306  Please note that anything received after October 23 may be too late to be in the rechartering.


  • This a good time of year to make sure that your Youth Protection Training is up to date. To take YPT click here. 
  • It’s also a good time of year to register to become a Merit Badge Councilor. To become a Merit Badge Councilor click here. You will need to print this form and turn it in to Gabby Gmyrek at the recharter table or bring it to the Council office at 2969 N Greenfield Rd, Phoenix.
