2021 Summer Camp - Many Point

The scouts have selected Many Point Scout Camp for 2021. Both troops will be there June 26 – July 3, 2021.  Please put it on your family calendar now.  Since it has been many years since Troop 330 has gone to Many Point, it will be new for the older scouts. Additionally, check out these programs  just for the older scouts.

 

Troop Meetings and Events -- details on TeampSnap

 

The pool is allowing us to test for free before open swim. If you are going to stay beyond the test, you will need to pay and make arrangements with your parents.

All scouts and adults attending SeaBase this summer need to pass the swimmer level before going to Florida. Scouts and adults attending summer camp can choose to take the test before going to camp but it will also be offered at the beach.   We may have time to work on rank advancement.

Please arrive in time to be changed and ready to be in the pool at 5:30. Yes, that means come at least five minutes early so you can change and shower.

Scouts are Searching for Merit Badge Counselors

With all the scouts working from home, they have been looking at merit badges they can complete while maintaining social distancing.

In order to facilitate their progress, the troop is looking for adults willing to become merit badge counselors.  You must first complete Youth Protection Training which is done completely on line and valid for two years.  Then you offer to share your knowledge, hobbies, work skills and passions with the scouts.  Please contact Mr. Louwagie to register.

The troop will reimburse each counselor for the purchase of a merit badge pamphlet for each of their badges. These books provide extensive details on how the scouts complete each of the requirements and can be purchased for under $5 at the Scout Shop The troop has a library of books for the scouts to borrow while working on a badge.  There are also workbooks available on-line.

There are over 135 different merit badges, the troop would love to expand our base.

 

Scout Parents -- Troop Committee Needs You!

 We need someone to take the can trailer to the  recycling center. The trailer is a significant source of additional funding for the troop. The trailer needs to be emptied every 3-4 months.
