Troop 14 Midweek Update - Early Edition

Next Meeting - Tuesday, May 10th @ 7pm @ Spring Lake Library

Please plan on attending a May 10th Parents' meeting. At this meeting, Scout parents will be provided with a suggested "4-5 year plan" for scouting, similar to the 4-year high school plan. This plan will contain suggestions for what badges are developmentally appropriate for each year in scouting, what badges are actually covered in school curriculum, and which badges should be or should not be done at camp.



Troop 14 is missing more than a dozen tents.

May Hike is in less than two weeks and we simply do not have enough tents for the boys who are signed up.

Quartermasters  would like to ask you to check your homes to see if a tent inadvertently came back to you. To return a tent, please see the emailed newsletter to make other arrangements.

May Hike – May 13-15th

If you have not signed up for the May Hike and are planning on attending, contact the Scoutmasters before May 3rd by phone or e-mail with T-shirt size, phone number and which hike you will be doing.

The older scouts are invited do an overnight 20-mile hike beginning on Friday evening and ending Saturday afternoon.

Younger scouts will participate in a shorter 10-mile hike along the Manistee River. This will be just a day hike so Scouts will only need a day pack with at least a Nalgene water bottle and mess kit.

All Scouts will camp out Saturday night and canoe down the Manistee River on Sunday. The canoe trip is about four hours putting the Scouts return time at about 5:00p.m. that Sunday evening.

Cost: $60
