Another summer has wrapped up with activities such as Summer Camp, NYLT, and
canoeing in the Canadian Wilderness at Northern Tier! The Troop moved back to
meeting on the North Campus starting 8/6 in full class-A uniform. The next 3
outings are planned with flyers on the back table during weekly meetings and on
our Troop website (www.troop629.org). The popular Helen Tubing will be on
Saturday 9/1 followed by some basic outdoor camping skills, swimming, mountain
biking, and creek hiking at Victoria Bryant State Park 9/7 Ė 9/9. In October a
new and exciting trip is coming, camping in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains with a
full day at Dollywood Theme Park!
As you start new grades, new schools, and new activities, be sure and fold
scouting into your schedule so that you too can be successful on your trail to
Eagle. Use our website calendar to help plan personal, school, and scout
activities to ensure careful sharing of your time. The Troop provides the
resources for you to meet your scouting goals, but itís ultimately up to each
individual Scoutís personal dedication to achieve their goal.
