Troop 235 Program Update 4/8/2021

Posted on Apr 7 2021 - 7:23pm

Greetings Troop 235 Scouts and families,

 We have a lot of great activities coming up in the next few weeks. Please read the eblast and the web site for details.

 Troop Meeting April 13th Scouts, at this meeting you will be able to learn about how to earn religious knots for your uniform, and enjoy a special presentation from our Outdoor Ethics Guide.  We are also trying to schedule Order of the Arrow elections and camping presentations for this meeting.  

Parents, there will be a parent meeting in person (outdoors) for you to attend. Included will be a special Summer Camp Info presentation. Don’t miss this, especially if this is your Scout’s first year at summer camp.

 Camporee May 1st

This is one event that we strongly encourage all Scouts to attend and represent our Troop!  This year is different in that the troops will not be camping.  They will be rotating through 14 fun events, all with a medieval theme.  Please read the details on the website and sign up by the 15th if possible. We need a general idea of how many Scouts will participate by then so we can estimate how many cohorts we’ll have.  Adults, do not RSVP yourselves unless you are a volunteer at the event (see below). 

 Adult Camporee Volunteers Needed!

Our Troop is running the Dragon Slaying event this year.  We will need 5-6 adult volunteers to help run it. You will need to be there from 7:00 am – 6:00 pm.  
We will also need 2 adults per cohort group to chaperone as they rotate through the events. This will either be the morning or afternoon session only. 
Finally, we’ll need a few adults to help set up the Dragon Slaying equipment on Friday evening the 30th.
RSVP on the website and indicate in the notes section which task you are volunteering for. We cannot be successful without your help. Thank you!

 A Scout is Helpful

  • The Gladiators patrol is running a food drive for Orange County Rescue Mission and the flyer is on the troop website here. Families can bring food items to the in person troop meeting on 13th April for drop off.
  • Aziz R. is running a collection drive for cleaning supplies and a flyer is on the troop website here.

 Are You Interested in Joining the Scoutmaster Team?

We are looking for motivated people to join our amazing adult leadership team as Assistant Scoutmasters.  One of the requirements is to attend Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS).  The next training is being held over 2 sessions, April 16th, 6pm-9pm and April 17th, 8am-6pm.  Click here to register.
Let me know if you have any questions about serving as an ASM!

 I hope to see you ALL at the meeting on the 13th and all Scouts at Camporee on the 1st!

 Yours in Scouting,

Jon Wierks, Scoutmaster
