Next Tuesday’s meeting will focus on Preparations for the Freez-O-Ree. This is a great campout for all ages to include the new scouts.  I will register the troop on Monday night so please sign up on Sign Up Genius as soon as possible:

During the meeting, we will come up with a meal plan, prep-troop gear, tweak the sled (already Made), and do an inventory of our personal gear.

*ALL scouts going on the campout please bring your gear with everyone you have on the packing list just as if you would for the campout. We are going to talk a little how to pack properly for a campout.  Here is the packing list:

  • Class A Shirt
  • Backpack (or Duffle Bag) with Waterproof Bag (Could be a lawn/leaf garbage bag)
  • Sleeping Bag – 30 degrees (or have a bivy sack to put over it to make it warm to 30 Degrees)
