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.

Troop Bicycling/Camping Trip is scheduled for Friday, June 28 through Sunday June 30. The troop will be camping and cycling on Cape Cod! We have once again reserved a camping site at Nickerson State Park on the Cape for Friday and Saturday nights. This will be a great trip and a chance to work on the Cycling merit badge.
The troop will meet at 9:00 AM Friday June 28 at the parish center. We will leave the parish center for the campground at about 9:30 AM. Scouts should have already eaten dinner before meeting at the parish center. We will arrive at the campground and set up camp for Friday evening.
On Saturday morning, the troop will divide into two cycling groups – advanced and beginners. Scouts can go with the group that they feel most comfortable with. There will be adult leaders for both groups. We will cycle in the morning and return to the campground for lunch. After lunch, we will cycle on different routes until dinner. After dinner at the campsite, scouts will have a chance to explore the park. On Sunday morning, there will be opportunities for a short ride. We will leave the campsite in the morning and return to the parish center for pickup at 3:00 PM Scouts will need to bring some $ for a fast food lunch on Sunday and an ice cream stop on the bike trail Saturday.
We will be cooking patrol style for Saturday breakfast, lunch & dinner and Sunday breakfast. Scouts will need to bring some $ for Sunday lunch. We will be camping in tents on Friday and Saturday nights. Besides their regular personal camping equipment, scout should bring:
• - a bike (we will have spare tubes and repair equipment)
• - a bike helmet (required)
• - sun block
• - water bottle to carry on bike
We will need a few parents to drive to/from the event. If you can help out, please indicate on the permission slip. If your son would like to attend, please complete the attached permission slip and return by the May 30th troop meeting. If your son would like to attend but will not be at the troop meeting on May 24, please email Ron Gorham before the 30th. We will be doing all the planning for the trip at the May 30th and June 6th troop meetings, so please be sure to let us know if your son will be attending.
This will be a great trip and a chance to see some really scenic parts of the Cape. Hope to see you there!
