Interfaith Hospitality Network Service Project

Please note that our next IHN Service opportunity is on Christmas Eve day and New Years Eve day at noon at Central Baptist Church in Wayne. Please consider coming to help out if you are in town and have an hour to spare, because I think they may be light on volunteers because of it being a holiday week.

Summer Camp 2018

Posted on Dec 5 2017 - 2:14am

It's time to pick a summer camp for 2018!  With our Scouts deciding to go somewhere other than Resica Falls this summer, your Troop Committee came up with three viable alternatives, each with their own unique programs and appealing features - (1) Camp Barton on Cayuga Lake, one of New York's Finger Lakes near Ithaca, NY; (2) Goose Pond Scout Reservation near Lake Wallenpaupack in upstate PA; (3) Rodney Scout Reservation on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay in MD.  Check out each of the camps by clicking on the names above.  As part of our ongoing work on the Communication Merit Badge, at this week's meeting we will be asking Scouts to select their choice of camp and prepare a report on its unique programs, advantages, and disadvantages to present the following week, 12/14.  After these presentations we will then take a Scout vote to determine where we will be camping this summer.  Our traditiional summer camp week is the first week in August which in 2018 would be from Sunday, July 29th through Saturday, August 4th.
