Are you signed up for the March rafting trip? If not, we have a few spots left! Not sure if you want to go? Then read on and explore some facts about this trip.

  • Where we will be: Upper Salt River Canyon (east of Globe)
  • We leave on a Friday evening (March 11), two nights of base camping and one day (Saturday) of river rafting
  • We camp in the same spots both nights, returning on Sunday (March13)
  • The outfitters (Mild to Wild) are cooking for us all day on Saturday, so patrol cooking for Sunday breakfast only (yay!)
  • There’s been enough snow this year which makes this trip possible – this is the first time we’ve done this trip (last time there wasn’t enough water)
  • The outfitter will provide wet suits & splash jackets, safety floatation devices and instruction on operating the raft
  • Our Guide is Whitewater River Merit Badge Counselor and will help all scouts earn their Whitewater River Merit Badge (http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Whitewater)
  • Because we are using an outfitter we have to be paid up and registered no later than Feb 8th in order to secure our spot with them for March.
  • Visit Mild to Wild site and watch their videos: https://mild2wildrafting.com/arizona-rafting/salt-river-rafting.html
  • If you are signed up for the trip be sure you attend the swim check at the end of February at the YMCA (see troop calendar)

Fee for this trip is $198.43. All money is due at this time and will be collected at the following meetings: February 1 and February 8.

If you’ve paid your deposit then please be prepared to pay the balance due tomorrow (Feb 1) or next Monday (Feb 8th). I will be available to discuss the trip with you if you need more information. Mr. Shull and Mr. Gordon are the Assistant Scoutmasters assigned to this trip. I am the Committee Member in charge of sign ups and collecting fees.

This is a great opportunity to earn the Whitewater River Merit Badge, learn about river rafting and spend two nights out camping under the stars in the high desert Sonoran scenery.

Your in Scouting,

Mrs. Wilson, Committee Member

Feb 26-28: Snowbowl Ski Trip

Posted by tking on Feb 1 2016 - 6:23am

This campout is scheduled for February 26-28, 2016. Scouts will be able to complete the Snow Sports Merit Badge if they have not already done so on a previous trip. Scouts will be staying at Camp Navajo army barracks and travel to Snowbowl on Saturday for skiing/snowboarding. During the Saturday Ski/Snowboard Lessons, Scouts will work on Snow Sports requirements. In the evening we will finish the paperwork at Camp Navajo in the barracks. If time and weather permits, we will plan for sledding on Sunday before returning home.

The cost of the trip is about $125 per scout/$150 per adult (if skiing/snowboarding) - for adults not skiing/snowboarding the cost is about $50. This cost includes ski rental, helmet, lessons, trip fee, barracks, patrol food and carrying cash. Download the Fact Outing Sheet for exact costs depending on options chosen.

Troop 365 is forming an Honor Guard

Posted by tking on Feb 1 2016 - 6:17am

Our Troop is forming an Honor Guard. The Honor Guard is an elite group of scouts within the troop that have taken on additional duties. The duties consist of learning how to properly present the colors in a variety of situations such as outdoor, indoor, and funeral presentations. For more than a century, Boy Scout Honor Guards have added reverence, dignity and patriotism to events like baseball games, camporees, parades, inaugurations, funerals and more.

We are seeking 10 Scouts to form the Honor Guard - Scouts MUST commit to practice time as well as close to 100% attendance at any given event we are asked to participate in. The Honor Guard is reserved for Scouts who have demonstrated strong adherence to the Scout Law.

There’s a NEW official Honor Guard patch to recognize Scouts who take on this important role as well.

If you are interested in participating in the Honor Guard, please contact Dr. Nguyen, Mr. Oless, or Mr. Shull directly via email or at the next troop meeting. Scouts (not parents on behalf of Scouts) must directly contact one of these three adults for consideration. 

Feb 13-15: High Adventure Arizona Trail Backpack

Posted by tking on Jan 29 2016 - 6:40am

The Troop will be doing a high adventure 3 day backpack thru the Mazatzal wilderness area from Saturday February 13th to Monday February 15th.  We will start at the City Park Trail head near Payson and climb up to the Arizona trail at the top of the Mazatzals and camp at an area known as the Park. On day 2, we will hike along the mountain range ridge and camp in very scenic meadow  known as Chilson Spring. On the last day, we will hike down to the Barnhardt trailhead. We will be traveling through a very rugged and remote area of Arizona and reaching an altitude of 6,500 feet. Expect very cold temperatures at night (20s). This is for scouts 14 and older or with Scoutmaster approval. We need drivers to drop off Saturday and pick up on Monday.  In the event of snow or bad weather, we will have an alternate destination for this backpack. If time allows, and if the scouts are feeling ambitious, we may climb Mazatal Peak 7,600’ on Monday before descending to Barnhard trailhead.


Feb. 7th: Scout Sunday Service Hours

Posted by tking on Jan 26 2016 - 6:08am

On February 7th, we will assist Community Church of Joy at their 2 worship services as part of Scout Sunday. The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8 (Scouting Anniversary Day) as Scout Sunday, which is the primary date to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting.

Scouts may sign up for one or both services Sunday morning. We will be greeting worshippers as well as helping out during the service as directed by the church. Scouts must be in Class A Uniform. Service hours will be awarded for participation. Please sign up online ASAP.

For more information or questions, please contact our Chartering Organization Representative, Mr. Andrews.
