Outings

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.

The cave can be damp and drip water, so a sheet of plastic or a small tarp is recommended to put under and over you. Temperature in the cave is about 52 degrees. We are limited to 30 people of which 5 or 6 need to be drivers.
