Two new January event announcements!

Junior Leader Training!

All our scouts were invited to attend junior leader training on 1-11-15 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm with Troop 40 in West Windsor, NJ. We would be leaving the YMCA at 12:00 pm.

This 4 hour course instructs the boys in how a Boy Scout Troop is organized, core leadership skills, and teamwork. 


They will need a notebook, pens, and their Scout Handbook.

We will be leaving and returning to the YMCA on that day. While the permission slip is due 1-9-15, please let one of the scoutmasters know if you will be attending as soon as possible.

Winter Overnight Camping Trip!

Troop 431 was also invited to attend Troop 40's annual winter overnight camping trip at Ockanickon Scout Reservation. This trip is designed to give the boys a taste of winter camping in a safe environment. While the boys will be camping in tents, there will be an indoors, heated backup location should the scouts need it.

Please note, that due to the possible wet, cold and/or snowy weather conditions in January, no scout will be allowed to attend without proper footwear (waterproof boots, snow boots preferred), sleeping bag (a 0 degree bag is recommended, but two lesser degree bags are acceptable), sleeping pad (foam or thin air), and jacket (hoodies are not acceptable substitutes for an outdoor cold weather jacket). Because of these requirements, there will be two shake down meetings. The above 4 items should be brought to the first on 1-16-15. Everything else should be brought to the second on 1-23-15. The shake downs will occur during our regularly scheduled weekly meeting.

The details are still being worked out at this time, so the departing and returning times will be announced once they are finalized.
