Camping June 2015

This month we’re headed to a favorite destination of Troop 96: camping at Indiana’s Potato Creek State Park and whitewater rafting on the St. Joseph River through downtown South Bend on the East Race Waterway.  The state park is beautiful and the waterway is amazing.  Check out this link for the whitewater rafting.

Food costs are $15 and rafting is $5 per run (typically, Scouts are able to do three runs, sometimes four).

Permission Slip is due on June 15 along with food money (in cash) payable to the patrol leader.  You can get the June 2015 Permission Slip by clicking on the link.

March 2014 Permission Slip

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.
