November Campout

November 1 – 2
Camp Tanadoona
<kolmsted@mediacombb.net>

$15 includes camp fees and food
Parents drop scouts off on Saturday morning at 9:30 and return to collect them on Sunday morning at 9:30.
Scouts will need personal gear — mess kit, change of clothes, sleeping bag, toiletries, medicines, scout book, personal first aid kit, etc.  Refer to your scout book for suggestions and plan for the weather.
We will be working on the cooking merit badge with each patrol submitting their best dinner entry for a cook-off competition using a score card for taste, texture and appearance.  Each patrol will plan their own meals and purchase the supplies. Save your receipt to get reimbursed by the troop.  Patrols will also need to plan a lunch for Saturday and a Sunday breakfast.
Several scouts are needed to volunteer for the following positions: One scout to plan a campfire program for the communication merit badge and one scout to plan the scouts’ own service for the communication merit badge. Please sign up at the troop meeting or contact Mrs. Olmsted.
Signup by the October 21 troop meeting.
