Outings: 

* WINTER SKI TRIP: First off, we can now allow Mom's to come and stay with the scouts now!  YOU SHOULD HAVE ALL CONFIRMED WITH MR DOLCE IF YOU ARE ATTENDiNG THE SKI TRIP.  THE PAPERWORK YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD COMPLETED IS ATTACHED.

 

We have reached an arrangement for better Lodging at The Salvation Army Pine Summit Camp.  We will stay in an upgraded Building called “Sugar Pine” - located right next to the Commissary - with a capacity of 8 Individual Rooms Total in the building and Each Room has four beds with own bath.  The Cost per guest is $144 (please note that this is an increase from earlier prices stated) BUT we have no minimum Guest requirement so the Troop will not have to pay for any unused or non-filled Guest Slots.  This makes lodging more flexible with our Troop 499 guest count and finally Mom’s can come too.  Women will lodge either together or have the ability to stay with their Scout(s), family.

 

Next good news is we have the opportunity for the Troop to participate in “The Snow Sport Merit Badge”.  They will have a Snow Sport Merit Badge counselor on site, so download and print the worksheet for this merit badge. Snow Sports - MeritBadgeDotOrg

 

Any questions please contact Edward Dolce Cell #818-326-3623 edolce@socal.rr.com.  Group ski rental and lesson rates are still as attached.  Please complete all relevant paperwork and get to Ed Dolce

SUMMER CAMP Our second payment deadline is coming up Feb 28th 2019. If you are still interested in attending and have not made the initial payment, then please contact SM Mary Ostlund as we may have a spot or two available.  Our troop is planning on attending Boy Scout Camp this summer at Mataguay Scout Ranch located just northeast of San Diego. We plan on going during our usual week starting July 7 through July13. Camp Mataguay offers an amazing program at an extremely reasonable price - just $405 per scouts!! With a relatively short drive, this camp provides an excellent opportunity for our troop. We need to put a deposit down on a campsite this week, which means we need to start to gauge interest from out troop. You can find some great information on camp including the Merit Badge information on the Summer Camp page.    Signup Genius 2019 Troop Activity List
