During our most recent troop meeting, we discussed several topics:
- A de-brief from the Klondike Derby — what went well, what could have gone better and what to do about it for next year!
- A standing service project of working with the FBC team to improve the food pantry and keep it up to speed (scouts need to decide if they’ll commit to this and discuss further with Pastor Ward.)
- Scout advancement — specifically adding in a focus on merit badges starting with “Camping Merit Badge“. Scouts will download worksheets and/or purchase booklets to begin learning the material and we’ll spend the next couple of weeks going through the basic requirements.
- Getting commitments from families about BSA Summer Camp. We need to very quickly decide which scout reservation we’d like to attend: Resica Falls Scout Reservation (Cradle of Liberty Council), or NoBeBosCo Scout Reservation (Northern New Jersey Council). Each offers a great program for scouts and each family must decide who will be attending so that we can get our registrations completed.
