Get Ready for the May Campout at the Troop Campsite

Parents/Scouts,

Our next campout will be Saturday, May 14th to Sunday, May 15th, at the Troop campsite in Milford.  We will meet at the parish center on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM.  We will return for pick up at the parish center by 10:30 AM on Sunday.  Scouts need to bring a bag lunch and the items listed on the Troop 4 camping equipment list, including their scout handbook.  The list is available on our website.

This local campout at our secluded Troop campsite is very convenient for scouts that have sports games to attend.  Scouts can check out to attend their game, and then return after it is over.  Be sure to indicate on your permission slip if you arriving late, or need to leave for a period, in order to attend a game.  Any scout who desires to reach Tenderfoot, or 1st Class rank by the end of the spring season should attend, as we will be covering many of the remaining advancement requirements at this event.

We will be cooking patrol style over open wood fires for dinner and breakfast.  Scout patrols will create their own menus and duty rosters at the May 5th troop meeting.  Dutch ovens and Dutch oven recipes will be available for scouts that have interest in this cooking technique.  Scouts need to bring a bag lunch for Saturday.

If your son will be attending this campout, please complete the permission slip and return it to the Troop Scribe at the May 5th troop meeting.  If your son would like to attend but won’t be at the May 5th troop meeting, please call or email Brian Weber before May 5th.   We may need a few parents to drive to/from and/or stay for the event.  If you can help out please indicate on the permission slip.  Note that the troop’s Milford campsite has very limited parking, so adults that plan to attend are encouraged to carpool.

Mr. Weber/Brian
