May Campout

The Troop is camping this weekend at Memphis Lake State Recreation Area (Get Directions). Please be at the Church no later than 5:45 P.M. on Friday so we can load everything and be on the road by 6:00 P.M. We are hoping to spend much of Saturday in canoes and kayaks, with lunch on the island. If you have your own PFD you would prefer to wear, please bring it along. Plan to wear clothes that can get wet (as little cotton as possible, not jeans, etc.) and bring rain gear! A towel may come in handy as well.

We only have two adults attending the campout, so would welcome additional adult participation. This is cutting it close, as the entire Troop will be unable to continue the trip should either of us need to take a sick or injured kid home, have a work or family emergency, etc. Your Scouts are learning to be self-sufficient, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use your help and wouldn’t enjoy your company!


This Monday’s Meeting, May 11th will be held at 7:00 P.M. at Ralston High School located at 8969 Park Drive (Get Directions). ALL SCOUTS who are attending summer camp or the May campout NEED to attend in order to complete a swim check. Please have your Scout wear their swimsuit to the meeting in order to be ready.

In order to accommodate the change in meeting location for this coming Monday’s meeting, the Committee Meeting for parents has been rescheduled to Monday, May 18th at 7:00 P.M. at the church.

The May Campout is 15th-17th at Memphis Lake State Recreation Area (Get Directions).
