Canoeing MB Course

Scouts and families of 56,

I will be offering the Canoeing merit badge soon. To earn this badge requires attendance at the following events listed below. This merit badge is excellent preparation for our two upcoming canoe trips in May and June.

** 5 Classroom sessions. These will be held from 6:30 – 7:00 PM at St. James’s Church just prior to the regular Scout meeting. Because of the short time frame it is very important to be on time. Also the class is largely Scout- taught: Each Scout will be given a topic & expected to prepare a 10 minute talk to be presented to the other Scouts to learn. Failure to prepare your topic means that everyone misses that requirement.

**Passing the BSA Swimmer Test

**Basic paddling lesson

**Learning and performing a canoe capsize and rescue  (2 persons per canoe).

an exhilarating trip!

Tuesday Feb 13 Meeting

Dear Everyone

The cross country trip was very fun and people had a blast.

This Tuesday’s-meeting I am asking Harrison to do the pledge allegiance, Roberto to do the Scout Oath, and Nathaniel do the Scout Law.

We will be in patrol for finishing flags, doing knot tying skills, and have a February trip reflection, and game.



Troop Meeting, Tue Feb 6, 2018

On Tuesday, Feb 6, we will work in patrols and finalize gear for the 9-11Feb ski trip.

This will be my first meeting as your president and I’d like you all to come in uniform with your scout books. I have asked Patrol leaders Harrison and Kavita to lead us in saying the pledge of allegiance and the scout oath. I will lead us in saying the scout law.


Meeting Tuesday, Jan 30

Hello everyone,

This week we will have a pack check, so everyone who is going, bring your bags. We will be distributing AMC gear too, so be ready. Ms. Holmes also wants to finalize plans for the wilderness first aid trip, so people going there need to get ready too.

See you all then,
