Troop Shoot
April 21-23, 2017

Enjoy a fun weekend of shooting competitions. All scouts 12 and over are invited to participate in Troop Shoot. (Some familiarity with shooting is recommended as there will not be time for instruction.) Participate in individual and team shooting contests.

Not 12? The troop invites you to come along and work on scout skills and enjoy the outdoors. Older scouts who donít want to shoot, youíre invited to come as well.

Bring a bag lunch for Fridayís dinner.

Spring Fundraiser

Product Pick Up: Wednesday May 10 from 5 pm to 7 pm in the back parking lot. ** All products must be picked up at this time because they require refrigeration. **

Sea Base Adventures

Both Troop 4 and Crew 4 are going to Sea Base in 2018!

The Crewís adventure (Bahamas) is already wait-listed. There are still three (3) spaces for youth on the Troopís adventure (SCUBA).

We need your sign-up and $100 deposit by ASAP. Even if you RSVPíd to Mr. Landquist or Mr. Dirr, you need to pay the $100 to keep your spot.

Summer Camp
June 25 - July 1, 2017

Summer Camp at Camp Long Lake is just around the corner. Summer Camp signups are now available. The early fee deadline is February 28.

Thereís some exciting new things this year: including ATV trails.

Donít forget that everyone MUST have a Part C (Doctor signed) medical form that is less than 12 months old for camp. Please, parents, when you have the doctor sign it, get them to put the date of their signature, not the last examination -- the camp must use whatever date is with the signature and it needs to be within the 12 months. Also, please WRITE the immunizations on Part B -- do not just include a separate sheet. This is for ease of treatment if anything happens as the camp knows to look at Part B.

May Outing

The May outing is still being finalized. Watch for more information as it becomes available.

July Outing
July 16 - 18, 2017 (Dates Tentative)

Please note that the July Outing to Governor Dodge State Park is tentatively scheduled for SUNDAY, July 16 to TUESDAY, July 18 due to the campground already being booked for all weekends this summer. Parents, we will need leaders who can take a couple of days off work. Please look at your calendars and save the dates!
