5/11 Troop Meeting St. Mary’s School 7:00pm – Preparation for the Canoe Trip on May 14-15th
May 14-15 – Canoeing on the Charles River and camping overnight at Rocky Narrows in Sherborn. This is another Trustees property, which has a boat landing and a campsite that we can reserve. We would probably launch in Millis and spend the day canoeing up to the site. We would be taking all of our gear in the boats. This would be a true “roughing it” Scouting Experience! Cost $15 per scout This is a one night trip, however we will probably get back later on Sunday so that we can get in a couple of hours on the river on Sunday AM. Exact logistics will be sent out shortly for this trip.

There is still space for additional Scouts (regular pricing $510) but if you are considering going to camp please let Tim O’Toole know as soon as possible.
Please make sure you are working with your Scout on updating Scout Book with any requirements that they have completed and had signed off in their handbooks. There are some Scouts who I do not see updates for and this makes it very difficult to track their progress and see where we may need to help insert programming in order to keep Scouts on track with rank advancement. In the notes section, please note who signed off on the requirement (should be an older Scout or SM, ASM). The Scouts should be proactively looking at their advancement requirements to see what they need and either working on those skills at home and then asking to be signed off or if they are attending camping trips and need certain things like cooking or building a fire, they need to advocate for themselves. A great way to do this is to use index cards and write down 2-3 things that they want to accomplish at each meeting or camping trip. Over time they will get their ranks completed.
