Wright-Patterson AFB

April 27 - 29, 2018 - Cost: $20

We will camp on base and hike and/or bike the Wright Memorial Trail in the morning.  That afternoon the Scouts will tour the museum.  This is a special trip we only do once every few years, so don't miss out!  

NOTE:  We need you to sign up and pay for this trip by March 5th, the same night you register for the Nelson Ledges/Chickagami campout.  The Air Force needs more notice than most places and we have to turn in money early.  

CHANGE FROM NORMAL: We will leave at 5:00 pm instead of 6:00 pm on Friday as it is a 5-hour drive.

For Cycling, Scouts will need the following:
 - Bike Helmet
 - Spare inner tube
 - water bottle
 - Something to carry their lunch other items

Remember: ALL Scouts and Adult Leaders are required to wear Cycling Helmets

Nelson Ledges to Chickagami Backpackin

Over the weekend the Troop took a trip over to Nelson Ledges.  They took turns exploring the ledges while also learning about First Aid, Proper Packing, and Trail Stove use.

After the morning activities, they backpacked about 5 miles from the ledges over to Chickagami Park.  There they setup for dinner and prepared some tasty chicken.

Sunday morning, the Troop enjoyed Pancakes at the Parkman Community center.

Photos can be found in the Troop Photo Gallery. Be sure to check them out!

Winter Olympics at Beaumont

Over the weekend Troop 101 went camping at Beumont Scout Reservation.  The theme for the trip was Winter Olympics

Saturday Morning they practiced their Fire building Skills to light the Olympic Torch, then proceeded to participate in several events to test their skills. 

The snow was too good to pass up, so one event changed to Snow Structure 101, where the patrols were given 40 minutes to impress the judges with a structure made of Snow.  We got an Igloo, Snowman, and a slope for boarding.

The evening ended with Falcon taking the Gold, and the Troop enjoying a nice dinner from Cockeye BBQ.  Before bed, they enjoyed a movie.  This will be one trip they're sure to remember.

NEW: Check out February 2018

If you have an older book, you should print THESE REPLACEMENT PAGES so that you are up to date with the requirements that became mandatory on 1/1/17.  You do not lose credit for any requirements completed, but you must meet all the new requirements in order to advance to the next rank. 

The Conservation Project requirement for Life seems to cause a lot of confusion for Scouts

The best and most consistent source we have is the BSA’s “Conservation Good Turn” award which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking here.

Although you DO NOT need to complete this award to satisfy the requirement, we do ask that you use it as a guide when you and your patrol together explorer patrol projects that would.  The following is an excerpt which should serve as your guide when organizing projects that would satisfy the requirement:

Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers - Suggested projects include, but are not limited to

  1. Plant shrubs to provide food and cover for wildlife.
  2. Build and set out bird and squirrel nesting boxes.
  3. Conduct stream improvement projects to prevent erosion.
  4. Plant grasses and legumes to provide ground cover in schoolyards, public parks, and recreation areas.
  5. Plant tree seedlings as part of a managed forestry plan.
  6. Help thin and prune woodlands in a managed tree improvement project.
  7. With a local forester, take part in or conduct a forest fire prevention program.
  8. Make an exhibit on conservation for a county fair.
  9. Develop a nature trail in a public park.
  10.  Assist a local forester in a tree insect- and disease-control or public education project.
  11. Assist a local agency with a trout stream restoration project.
  12. Participate in a wildlife or wildfowl count.
  13. Conduct a rodent-control and public health education program under the guidance of the local health department or agency responsible for rodent control.

To verify the completion/satisfaction of this requirement, we ask that you FIRST arrange the project with either the Campmaster or Ranger of the facility, THEN carry out the project and have the Campmaster/Ranger document and verify the hours worked and that the project was satisfactorily completed.
