Summer Camp 2014


Summer Camp 2013 Day 1 & 2


Summer Camp 2013

Congratulations Eagle Scouts!
 Communication is a main key to the success of the Troop.  Talking to several parents, we have formulated a plan to help and here is what we are going to do.

We will increase information on the website so please remember to bookmark this page as a favorite and check the page for recent information.  We plan on having up to date information from Troop Meeting agenda to Camp-out information including a suggested list of what to take on campouts. We will also put the same information out in the troop e-mail format.

Now here's the biggie and here's where we need your help - We are going to also send information via text.  The kids don't look at e-mails.  How many times have you called your kid and it goes to voice mail?  And then you text him and you hear back right away?  In order to do this I need your up to date cell number and the cell number of your Scout.  I promise these numbers will remain confidential.

Please respond to my e-mail - mgf1950@everestkc.net
If you have questions or concerns feel free to e-mail or call me. 
My cell is 913-406-7520 and my home is 913-262-3149

Thank You in advance,

Mike Foster
