May Camping Event

Our next camping event will be at Virginia Beach at First Landing State Park. The trip will be over the weekend of Friday, May 13th through Sunday, May 15th. We plan to organize some beach hiking and will go to Nauticus in Norfolk. This will also be an opportunity for scouts to get involved with meal planning for advancement. Scouts are encouraged to sign-up at our next meeting on Tuesday night. We will need a volunteer to transport the Troop trailer.

If you have any troop gear please return it. It is needed for our next trip.

Several boys have asked me about Service Hours.

The Cub Scouts need your help. Notify Scoutmaster if you are interested.
