About the Event


Join us for one of our most exciting events of the year as we welcome our new scouts to their first troop outdoor event and campout. It also kicks off our camping season as we march into springtime.

This event is our chance to get to know the new scouts and teach them scout spirit by demonstrating the patrol method with cooking, patrol cheer and showing off patrol boxes and flags among all other things.

It is also a great opportunity to fulfill cooking requirements for rank advancements, so if you are interested in taking advantage of the opportunity, please email your patrol leader along with Mr Rogers and Mr. Grosso as soon as possible. Menus need to be finalized seven days prior to the event.

Patrol leaders/Assistant Patrol leaders, this is your chance to flex your patrols, so make sure your patrol boxes are stocked and you bring your flag and other patrol spirit items.

Tenured scouts (all scouts other than new scouts) should arrive at 6pm Friday night April 12th and be prepared for two nights of tent camping. Friday night we will prepare the camp for the weekend along with a cracker barrel Friday night around the campfire. Other than cooking rank advance opportunities, we will be setting up several other stations to help with requirements in Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class. We also will need a campfire MC for any scout looking to start their Communications MB, if interested please email Mr. Grosso

New scouts should arrive Saturday morning at 10AM and be prepared for one night of cabin camping. Please eat breakfast prior to attending. This is your chance to get to know the tenured scouts and the various patrols. We will have a fun day planned full of food, scout skills and games as well as a campfire program followed by TAPS and lights out.

All new scouts will be sleeping together in a cabin, and it should be nice and warm and be a great way to break into camping without mom and dad. PLEASE encourage your scouts to stay the night as we want to promote independence as quickly as possible as we move towards other events this spring and ultimately, summer camp.

If for any reason, they cannot stay the night, please plan to pick them up at 9pm on Saturday night. Pick up location will be at the Hearst campsite.
