Troop Library

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Nov 3 2016 - 1:48pm

As the new troop Librarian, I am asking you to return any merit badge books that you have borrowed and any merit badge books that you own and are willing to donate to help our troop library grow.

Can you please bring all books for the library to the next meeting on Monday, November 7th.  I will be posting a list of all the books the troop has in the library on the troop website so everyone can see what is available.  We are especially looking for the following titles:

Camping, Swimming, Sustainability

as these are Eagle Required and we have no copies of these. 

Thank you. Michael Patuto

What’s an interactive digital merit badge pamphlet?

Posted by pbower on Oct 26 2016 - 8:01pm

A digital version of the traditional paper merit badge pamphlet, the interactive digital merit badge pamphlet brings the merit badge experience to life. It’s packed with features not found in the traditional pamphlet that amplify how Scouts earn merit badges and how counselors support Scouts in their journey. Features like “how to” videos, virtual tours, simulations, animations, and interactive Q&A’s are just a few extras Scouts will experience that’s not possible in print. Plus, unlike print, the features and content (like your badge requirements) are fully searchable so you can pinpoint the exact location you’re looking for.

First Class Skills

Posted by jbungerspiecha on Oct 21 2016 - 12:37pm
During the coming year, our Troop will emphasis First Class Skills.   Our goal is to ensure every scout is proficient at the basic scout craft skills outlined in the first four ranks - Scout, Tenderfoot, Second and First Class.  We propose to reinforce these skills though instructor activities, scoutmaster challenges, one-on-one work with scouts and review sessions prior to a scout's official scoutmaster conference.  
 
Reece Lenaz, a Life Scout and a Troop Instructor, is offering one-on-one advancement help to any scout who asks.  Attached is a flyer with information and his contact information.

October Challenge: Basic Tree Identification

Posted by pbower on Oct 16 2016 - 5:46pm
Before all the leaves fall, each scout is asked to assemble a personal leaf collection. Each leaf should be taped to a piece of notebook paper with the tree's common name written below the leaf.  Collections can be as large as the scout desires, but should include leaves from the trees listed below. Download the free Leafsnap app to your smart phone for help identifying trees in the field.
