Reading Merit Badge

Posted by tking on Jul 1 2014 - 2:35pm

From Mrs. Wilson (Reading Merit Badge Counselor):
Hi Scouts! Summer is a great time to be working on your Reading Merit Badge. “Reading? But it’s summer!! That sounds like homework!”

I thought you’d say that! Well, picture yourself on one of the hottest days of summer break. Let’s say it’s 108 degrees and you’ve just fried your last egg on the sidewalk, popped your last water balloon and the water park is closed for renovations. How about joining Brian Robeson on his way to visit his father when the single engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and….well, I can’t tell you the entire story. (hint: Hatchet  by Gary Paulsen). But wait, you’re needed by Aronnax to investigate a mysterious sea monster, only to discover it is actually an enormous high-tech submarine. When you board the vessel, run by Captain Nemo, you will learn the story of the submarine's fantastic voyage from the lost continent of Atlantis to the South Pole (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea By Jules Verne).

Chill out this summer in the pages of a book. Start your Reading Merit Badge today!

Have fun reading!

Northern Tier High Adventure Trip: July 22 - Aug 2

Posted by tking on Jul 1 2014 - 2:34pm

All downloads have now been moved to a special FILES section - go to the FILES link in the menu and choose the NORTHERN TIER - SUMMER 2014 folder.

This High Adventure trip to Northern Tier is scheduled for July 22 - August 2nd. This is a high adventure canoe trip out of Bissett, Manitoba (Canada). The trip is designated for Scouts ages 14+ OR graduated from the 8th grade AND age 13 by July 23rd. Scouts must also be classified as a swimmer and have obtained a valid passport.

This is a trip of a lifetime. Scouts will partake in a 65-80 mile canoe trip in Atikaki Provincial Park and Woodland Caribou Provincial Park. All crews enter the wilderness via a 20 minute float plane to a canoe cache located at the heart of the combined 2.5 million acres of Atikaki Provincial Park and Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, an area paddled by only a handful of canoeists each year. Crews are limited to 11 participants plus an interpreter.

Each adult on a Northern Tier MUST read the Advisor Guide, and all Northern Tier Participants must follow the Equipment List. Please note that Scouts/Adults should not take extra personal gear, and that no more than half of the participants in each crew should bring fishing gear on the trek. Participants that do bring fishing gear will be expected to share with others on their crew. Keeping personal gear size and weight down to a minimum is critical, as we will be transporting it all by canoe or on our backs for the entire 10 days.

Mr. Gordon is our trip organizer. Please contact him with questions or for additional information.

Donate to Friends of Scouting via Troop 365

Posted by tking on Jan 13 2014 - 3:53pm

Each year parents of Scouts and community members in the Grand Canyon Council are asked to contribute to the annual Friends of Scouting campaign. This campaign is an essential component of the funding efforts for our council, raising over 21% of the council`s annual income.

Scouting families play a vital role in the annual Friends of Scouting campaign because they see, on an ongoing basis, how important the Scouting program is in the lives of their Scouts.

Each year, the Grand Canyon Council touches the lives of tens of thousands of Scouts and their families. Serving that many youth requires a budget designed to support a lot of great Scouting. Participation in the Friends of Scouting campaign will guarantee that funding will be available to meet the annual budget needs to support programs, communications, council staff, camps, office facilities and much more.

Here is how our campaign works. Beginning in November and through March, Scouting volunteers come to a unit activity (typically a pack meeting or troop court of honor.) This volunteer invites the families present to consider making a tax-deductible pledge to the Grand Canyon Council that can be paid during the year.

Families and interested community members are encouraged to give based on their interest in the program and their ability to give. Help keep Scouting strong by participating as a Friend of Scouting.

Contributions can be made online with payment by credit card, electronic check or by mail. To donate online visit https://gcc.patchfunding.com/ and follow the steps below to ensure Troop 365 receives credit for your donation:

  • Visit https://gcc.patchfunding.com/.
  • Select NEW USER.
  • Select your pledge amount and click CONTINUE.
  • Type in 365 for the Troop # to ensure our unit receives credit during this year's campaign. Complete all payment information. Select MAKE PAYMENT.

Thank you for your generous support!
