Troop 111 Camp!

I know everyone is pretty disappointed not to be heading to Camp Shenandoah today, but I think the troop has put some pretty awesome plans in place for your scouts!
The week will be broken into two sections. Monday and Tuesday are going to be Day events at Grace Community Church. These will run from 9-4, and scouts will need to bring a packed lunch. Thursday – Sunday will be a troop campout at Graves Mountain Campground. The cost for this will be $50 per person, but we can take this out of your Camp Shenandoah refund if needed.
Monday & Tuesday:
The amazing Timber Mountain program team from Camp Shenandoah have volunteered to come and teach our scouts the TMP program during these two days. I would highly recommend taking advantage of this for any scout who needs to get some requirements signed off.
We are also going to be working on some merit badges during this time for the older scouts. Currently, our offerings are: Engineering, Energy, Cooking, Fishing, Geology and Citizenship in the World. I will send out another email tonight to confirm the offerings and to show the schedule of badges.
There is now a normal scout meeting Tuesday at 7pm at the church. This will be used to plan for the campout. 
Wednesday:  No events
Thursday – Sunday:
On Thursday, We will meet at the church at 5pm to load up to go to Graves Mountain. This should be a really awesome campout and we welcome all parents to attend! There are ponds for fishing (Does not require a fishing license, so bring your own gear!), and a pool for swimming and a restaurant by the pool, so scouts might want to bring some money. Bikes are also allowed if you can get them there!
While at the camp, we are planning on working on more merit badges, like lifesaving. As of right now, we are still finalizing these plans as it depends on which adults are able to attend. For more information on the camp, please visit: https://www.gravesmountain.com/resort-campground-shenandoah-national-park/
ALL PARENTS ARE WELCOME TO COME TO CAMP SATURDAY NIGHT FOR A FAMILY DINNER.

Will work for Donuts!

This past Saturday, Troop 111 participated in the Grace Community Church’s church work day. 9 scouts and 4 scouters participated in cutting grasses, raking and general tidying of the church grounds. They worked quickly and with the cheerful spirit that is exemplified in the Scout Law. The rewards of hard work are sweet!
