Saturday, July 28 – Sunday, July 29: White Water Rafting trip in Ohiopyle!
For the second year in a row, we are attending the rafting camp out in Ohiopyle. Last year, this was one of the highlights of the year! It is a great outing for parents to attend with their scouts and a Ton of Fun!
We will raft in Ohiopyle. Travel out Saturday the 28th, raft the morning of the 29th and return by late evening. Parents are encouraged to attend. Preferred age is 12 and up, but they can take 11 year olds provided enough adults are on the trip.
Cost will be $120 per person, and includes a visit to a railroad museum on Saturday afternoon in route. We keep the cost of most outings very reasonable while seeking to do the adventures voted on by the Scouts. This year, for the second time in a row, the Scouts are looking to do a few higher adventure outings including this rafting trip. This was a highlight of the year last year for all the scouts and adults who attended!
Monday, July 30, 7:30 – 9 pm. Troop meeting @ Church and Parent Meeting
We will continue to focus on key themes from the parent meeting: shadowing and transitioning key adult leadership roles, preparing for girls in scouting, and preparing for ventures.
