No meeting this week due to winter break. Enjoy some time off to recharge and greet 2018 with renewed energy. And don’t forget to update your ScoutBook account!
Congratulations to Chris K. and Anthony Q. who earned the rank of Second Class Scout following last week’s Board of Review.
The Pocono Environmental Education Center is offering hikes as well as snow shoe and cross country skiing events throughout January and February. If you would like to see one of those events as a Troop event, Scouts should check out PEEC’s CALENDAR and speak with their Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader or Scoutmaster. Event planning is the responsibility of our Scouts. Adults are always here to help, but decisions are to be made by the Scouts.
Scouts interested in earning the Swimming MB outside of summer camp can check out Club Fit in Jefferson Valley, NY: Swimming Merit BadgeClass runs over the course of four Sundays. Club Fit also offers the Lifesaving Merit Badge
Kopernik Observatory & Science Center has released their tentative Merit Badge Workshop schedule: Kopernik Observatory. Kopernik is approximately a two hour drive and often offers MB weekend overnights (giving Scouts the opportunity to earn two MB in one weekend).
