Hello Scouts and Parents! Outdoor Camping Season is upon us. We need everyone interested to signup for April and May campouts this week so we can properly plan for your adventures.
April – Brownsea Camp and other adventures at the College of Wilderness Knowledge at Birch Bend Camp in St. Pierz, MN. This is a new location for our Troops. As per tradition, new Scouts will work on critical camping related requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class and even First Class Ranks! Older Scouts will spend some time helping teach the new Scouts to pay it forward for those who taught you these great Scout skills. Other time will be made available to work on Orienteering MB and other adventures in this new campground for us. Scouts are invited to bring any archery equipment they have and we will have access to the archery range during the weekend. Please check out the Scouting626.com web page for more information and to register to attend. http://www.scouting626.com/camping/camping-events/april2019-brownseacamp
May – Ripley Rendezvous (Registration is Closing April 1st at Midnight – Don’t be left out)
This is a twice in a Scouting career event. Our 14 year old Scouts had the opportunity to attend in their first year of Scouting and most are excited to return. Thousands of Minnesota nearby states’ Scouts will be attending. It’s gonna be HUGE! Scouts can choose their own adventure level, with recommendations based on age. Camp in the same place our MN National Guard trains and see demonstrations of what they prepare for. There is plenty to see and do and with live music performed for us at night. The Troop pre-paid for slots and we are turning in the unused slots for credit on Tuesday! We may be able to register more later, but we don’t want to pay for unused registration. Please signup right away to participate. More information is on the Scouting626.com web page with a link to register. http://www.scouting626.com/camping/camping-events/ripleyrendevous-may17-19
