This month, the troop will stay close to home for our first weekend campout with the new Scouts who have just joined Troop 96.
We’ll gather on Friday night at the St. Gilbert Church parking lot at 5:30PM. Once we check-in and load the gear, we’ll head to McHenry for an evening of roller skating. On Friday night, after the “general public” leaves the roller rink, we’ll stay behind, set up our tents on floor of the rink and spend the night. In the morning, we’ll pack up and head to Camp Lakota in nearby Woodstock for the rest of the weekend.
Saturday we’ll have plenty of time to work on making camp, basic Scout skills and, of course, making a special dinner in each patrol that we’ll share with the entire troop. For Saturday’s dinner, all patrols and the adults will bring their meals together for a buffet.
Bring your permission slip to the March 10 meeting (Grab a Copy Here), plus $15 for food. Cost for skating is $10 and the troop will pay an additional $5 for each Scout who participates.
