2018 Summer Camp

Posted on Nov 16 2017 - 3:45pm

It's not too early to think about summer camp nor too early for families to put the dates in the calendar.    We are returning to San Isabel Scout Ranch and Rocky Mountain High Adventure Base for the base camp and high adventure camps, respectively. We will be be in camp the week of June 17 - 23.  We will leave Houston on June 15 or 16 and return to town on June 24.  Summer camp is a great adventure and is highly recommended for all scouts.

Merit Badges and Rank Advancement

Posted on Nov 15 2017 - 4:03pm

Updated reports on partial merit badges and rank advancement status are available.  The Thanksgiving break from school may be a great time to work on advancement requirements.  Please check the reports and discuss any discrepencies from your own records with Mr. Schutt.  Remember that each scout is responsible for his own advancement.  Adults simply work with youth leaders to create an environment where the scouts can learn through doing and thereby expand their horizons.  Our troop tries to follow the BSA Guide to Advancement so this is the resource that we run to if there are any questions.  A brief summary of the policies for merit badges and rank advancement is on the website.

Troop Leader Training

Posted on Nov 15 2017 - 3:44pm

As adults, do you wonder why we do what we do in scouts?  Any adults who would like to learn more about scouting and be more involved in the troop's adult leadership should consider attending Leader Training being offered on December 9 at the Cockrell Scout Center.  More information and registration can be found here.  The Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters must take this class to be considered "Trained" leaders.  It never expires.  While this training is available online, the classroom session is probably half as long and offers the benefit of discussion and collaboration.  It would be great to have more trained adult leaders for our scouts.

Greenery Sales

Posted on Nov 9 2017 - 3:54pm

Thank you to everyone who sold/bought greenery.  As of now, we have a net profit of approximately $2,200.    Henry Teel sold the most greenery (27 items, $1,150 gross sales).  Ben Liu was second with 11 greenery items.  Since local sales are delivered to us by the case rather than the item, we will have some extra greenery that we will need to sell.  Let Mr. Teel know if you have any more local sales leads.  We will probably also set up a table at the reception before and after the December 3 Holy Spirit church service. Net profit is about 44% below last year but given Hurricane Harvey that might be expected.  In all, this is still an important contribution to the troop budget so thanks to everyone who participated.

Cyber Chip Requirements for All Scouts

Posted on Nov 9 2017 - 10:19am

At this week's meeting we discussed the Cyber Chip.  This is a requirement for the Scout and Star Ranks as well as several merit badges (including Photography which many are working on).  The Cyber Chip program helps educate Scouts about being safer online and assists them in promoting community awareness of Internet safety issues. Scouts may earn the Cyber Chip online at this link.  Make sure you complete the program for your grade level.  Please print your completion certificate and show it to Mr. Schutt so that we can recorded completion in TroopMaster.  Keep it so that you can also show it to any merit badge counselor who may need to see it for merit badge requirements.
