Happy New Year from Troop 199! We hope 2018 brings you great things. I am reaching out to let you know a few things if Troop 199 is on your Short List of Troops to Crossover to.
If you are choosing Troop 199:
– Please contact Deb Heindricks ASAP so she can get you on our Blue and Gold Calendar and have Troop 199 Scouts there to welcome your Webelos on the other side of the Bridge.
– The 1st meeting for you and your new Scout will be Tuesday March 6th. There will also be a Parent’s Orientation Meeting at the same time on March 6th and March 13th with a Q&A session on Tuesday March 2oth.
– The first Campout is Friday March 23rd to Sunday March 25th. This will be your Scouts most important campout. The entire campout is structured around giving our new Scouts a jump start on their Trail To Eagle. Many Tenderfoot, 2nd Class and 1st Class requirements will be taught and completed this weekend. As well as an special induction ceremony at the closing Campfire.
– Summer Camp is Saturday July 8th to Sunday July 14th so save the date. Summer Camp is a week long camping experience that is not to be missed. Details will be available at the Parent Meetings.
Attached you will find a copy of our Annual Calendar. Webelos choosing Troop 199 are welcome to join us on our February Campout. Otherwise Webelos joining Troop 199 will start camping in March.
