Recently Troop 684 went on a camp out to Kandersteg for the annual Klondike trip. It was fun (however cold), but everyone enjoyed it and it was a really fun experience.
The scouts went to the Thalwil hutte 15-17 of September.
19 boys were at the camp and 5 adults were there as well.
The scouts built campfires, went on an orienteering hike, cooked meals, carried water and slept in tents.
There are a few community service opportunities available to our Scouts between now and the end of the year. A large part of Scouting is committing to helping others, to think beyond yourself and have the opportunity to feel good by choosing to spend time unselfishly.
On Saturday, March 18th, there is an orange sale at the Thalwil Coop. (Flyer attached) Scouts will help assist with the orange sale. This sale benefits the Terres des Hommes in Switzerland. This is an annual sale that is supported by the public. The sale will run from 10:00 – 16:00. Please let me know if your Scout is available to assist during any hours during this timeframe.
As of now, I have Aidan and Callan from 10:00- 12:00
Nathan Michels from 11:00 – 13:00
Vallabh Nair from 14:00 – 16:00
We could use a few more Scouts to help out from 12:00 onwards. Please let me know if you are available. I will send an email confirmation to everyone volunteering and include the contact information for the person organizing this event. I will be in L.A from March 10 – 20 and will be available to answer questions through email.
Another date for your calendar is Saturday May 13th. Also attached is information about this fun walk to raise funds for Rainbows 4 Children. Please see attached document for more details.
The World Wildlife Fund also has a fun run in the spring that a few of us participated in last year. We will probably do so again. More details when I get them.
C.o.H Court of Honor Winter 2017 At this year’s first C.o.H we had a lot of newer scouts earn a lot of Merit badges and also some earned Rank Advancements. We had a total of 9 scouts out of 20 at the C.o.H and that’s amazing. Our troop hopes to see some new faces at this summer’s C.o.H. Scouts Sunday Bake sale. This last weekend our troop just had a bake sale to raise some money for the troop and this bake sale took place at the church where we hold our weekly meetings. There were a lot of people there that found it really nice to have something small like this. Also a lot of people where really happy to help earn money for their troop.
