Regular Outings

Outings are a very important portion of the Scouting experience. Most of the word “Scouting” is “outing” and here is where the scouts learn and practice their outdoor skills. Camping, cooking, fire building, compass work, canoeing, hiking, biking, nature study, staying dry when the weather turns bad and most important of all, our troop's first and only law “Safety First” and finally working within the patrol method. We try to have an outing every month.

Dues dates are posted for a reason. Proper planning requires that you signup for an outing by the date due. Have consideration for the people making all the plans by allowing them enough time to work the plan.

Please do not ask to be added to the outing if the due date has past as your request will be denied. If you need this outing for advancement, it is your responsibility to turn your information and money in promptly.
