Outings - 2015

Outings are a very important portion of the Scouting experience. Most of the word “Scouting” is “outing” and here is where the scouts learn and practice their outdoor skills. Camping, cooking, fire building, compass work, canoeing, hiking, biking, nature study, staying dry when the weather turns bad and most important of all, our troop's first and only law “Safety First” and finally working within the patrol method. We try to have an outing every month.

You can get your equipment lists here: This is the Regular Equipment List and this is the Winter Equipment List (Boys Scouts of America considers 50 degrees cold weather camping)

Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders: here are your Duty Rosters and Menu Planning Sheets!!

Please note:

Dues dates are posted for a reason. Proper planning requires that you signup for an outing by the date due. Have consideration for the people making all the plans by allowing them enough time to work the plan.

Please do not ask to be added to the outing if the due date has past as your request will be denied. If you need this outing for advancement, it is your responsibility to turn your information and money in promptly.

Winter Camping Outing February 20 - 22, 2015 Thursday, February 5th
We will brave the elements at Camp Lakota and test our ability to survive in the Northern Illinois tundra. Snow or no snow, we will have activities planned to keep active and warm. Along with our tents, a heated shelter will be nearby in case anyone needs help warming up and also to use for some activities. Part of the agenda will include necessary training for the Second Class rank such as knife sharpening and preparing wood for firebuilding. The winter offers a better time to hike some of the trails that can be swampy and mosquito ridden in the summer. If the temps fall below 32 degrees, we can earn the Frostfire award! This is a regular outing, so meals will be by patrol cooking. Dinner Saturday night will be family style: we will all eat one big meal together.
