    Tuesday, October 2

    I'm still working on putting things together for Robotics so let's finish up a badge we started back in 1998.  Of course, some of you weren't with us then so this will be your chance to get started.  Please come ready to run, stretch, flex, and be amazing as we work on Personal Fitness.

    We'll use the chart below to track improvement.

    Almost time for camp!

    Scout Parents,

    Troop 212, Red Cloud, 2011
    Camp is just one week from tomorrow! I'm looking forward to a great week with your boys in a beautiful spot.  I'm also looking forward to a really fun hike. This will be my third scout camp as Scoutmaster and I have seen the experience bless all of the boys who have been involved. I didn't always "get" this but I see now how Scouting can truly produce young men who are "Prepared for Life." Scout camp is a big part of that.

    I've updated the patrol leadership for camp - see the column on the right.

    We will meet at 7:00 AM Monday morning (July 23) near the scout trailer for prayer, troop scripture and departure.

    Please review the equipment list and remember that we will not provide paper plates, cups, or plastic knives, forks, or spoons this year. The scouts will need to bring a washable set for themselves.

    Please review the standards here.

    If you have any concerns, unfinished business or just plain questions, please let me know at your first convenience.

    Remember, without the health form and the $45 check, we can't get your boy into camp.

    Looking forward to a great camp,

    Scoutmaster Steve

    Mike Harris & Moose Creek

    I hope that this doesn't contradict what your boy told you but I think that we had a great camp and hike this past Friday and Saturday.  We camped Friday night at Mike Harris campground and hiked Moose Trail on Saturday.  Your boys got along and cooperated so well.  They even got up at 5:00 AM Saturday morning!  They are great young men.  Here are a few pictures.
