Frothy Whitewater on Tap for June

The June white water rafting trip is from Friday, June 24 through Sunday June 26th. As we did two years ago, we will be hosted by the Adventure Bound outfitters.  They will provide the boats, wetsuits, all equipment, and even the expert guides that will ride in each boat. Friday is a travel day to our “resort” campsite, complete with pool, hot tub, game and movie rooms. Saturday is whitewater day. We will travel back on Sunday.  Our river course follows the Kennebec River.  The minimum age to attend this trip is 10 years old.  We will be tenting and cooking by patrols. The cost of the trip $40 for scouts who bridged this year or who sold 20 or more tickets to this years’ pancake breakfast.  The fee for parents, leaders and other scouts is $80.00.  A liability waiver is required by Adventure bound and is available at this link.  If you plan to attend, please drop your payment, liability waiver, and the Troop 4 permission slip in the scribe box NLT June 2nd.   The Troop must submit its final roster and payment NLT June 10th.

We are expecting a good crowd to show up this year. We will have a troop campfire Saturday night. Each Patrol should prepare a new skit for the troop campfire. Prizes will be awarded for the best skit! The troop will provide a complete dinner and breakfast along with all the eating utensils, cups, plates, etc. The scouts will be planning the meals, activities, and doing the cooking for the weekend.

We will meet at St. Mary’s parish center at 9:00 AM Saturday November 17 and will return to the parish center by 1PM on Sunday for pickup on the 18th. Scout should bring their regular camping gear and bag lunch for Saturday. As always, scouts can come/leave early or late, etc, if they have conflicts with sporting or other local events. If you need to come or leave early, please note that on the permission slip. We will need a few parents to drive to/from the event.

If your son is planning to attend, please return the attached permission slip by the Nov 8th troop meeting along with a check for $10 to cover the cost of the food for the weekend. If your son can’t make the Nov 8th troop meeting but wants to attend, please call or email Ron Gorham before the 8th so we can include him in planning for the event.
