Troop 14 Newsletter for Monday, May 2nd

Next Meeting - Tuesday, May 3rd @ 7pm @ Spring Lake Library (Please note new location)

Please note:
  • Summer Camp payment of $180 is due on May 4th. If anyone has difficulty submitting all of it at this time, payment arrangements may be made with the Treasurer
  • Anybody who has any troop equipment (especially TENTS) must return it to the Quartermaster at the next meeting.  If you are not able to be at the next meeting, please see the newsletter to make other arrangements.
  • 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.

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
