This weeks campout will be canoeing at Rampart Range Reservoir! Mr. Durrenberger and Mr. Studebaker will be starting the merit badge Tuesday.
Rampart Range Reservoir a short drive from Colorado Springs and its easy car camping. These sites are first come first serve so we will need one adult to head out a little early and secure the sites. The cost for this campout will be approximately $15-$20 per scout. This fee covers the cost of food, campsites, sunscreen, bug spray and cooking stuff for the scouts. The $160 rental fee for canoes are being paid for by the troop which was earned through FLAG MONEY!! This is another reason why flags are so important! The next flag sign up will be coming out soon so please support the program.

For this Tuesday’s meeting we will decide meal plans, who is buying and preparing food. We will also prepare our troop gear.
If you took home a tent to dry out from the Terryall Campout then please bring it back as we will need it!!
You do not have to bring in your gear to this meeting but here is a good link to a basic packing list: http://boyslife.org/outdoors/outdoorarticles/6976/scout-outdoor-essentials-checklist/
Please make sure you have a bathing suit or two and towel. We will be in the water a lot and sunburn is a risk so hats and swim shirts are a good idea. Shoes that you can get wet in will help protect your feet. You can also bring goggles or a swim mask/fins if you’d like because I’m sure we will get some play time in the water too 🙂
