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.

Close
8:00 am

The Lanciano’s have once again graciously invited the troop to their mountaintop alpine adventure base in Alexandria NH. It will be held on February 8 and 9th. The Venture scouts (high school) are eligible to depart with an advance party on Friday. Ventures will meet and depart at the St. Mary’s Parish Center on Friday February 7th at 6pm.

All other scouts will meet and depart from the Parish Center on Saturday February 8 at 8 am. Scouts will return from the event for pickup at the Parish Center at approximately between 2 and 3 pm on Sunday. (Scouts will call home on their ride home to nail down arrival time). All scouts should eat a meal before they depart, as there will be no meal stop on the ride up north.

Scouts....snow is in the forecast.....Don’t forget your sled on this trip. Intense sledding is the main feature. For safety, scouts are encouraged to bring a ski helmet or sport helmet if they have one. Interested scouts can also try their hand at cross country skiing and snowshoeing. There is no fee for this camping trip.

All scouts should bring a bag lunch on Saturday. All scouts will cook outdoor patrol style meals for Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast. We’ll stop for a fast food lunch on the ride home. Meal planning was done by scouts at the January 30th troop meeting. Meals will be cooked by patrols outdoors over their wood fire.

Scouts will be sleeping in the wood stove heated luxury of the Lanciano cabin ground level (aka basement). While no tents are required, scouts should bring their full complement of winter camping gear (see website checklist), including sleeping pad, sleeping bag and water bottles. Ok to bring slippers too.

The permission slip is due by Tuesday, February 4.
