Tues. April 21: Willse Packing Party Service Project

Posted by tking on Apr 16 2015 - 8:17am

As many of you know, Mr. Willse winters here in Arizona and graciously serves our troop from fall to spring every year. Many scouts have benefited from his years of scouting experience and merit badge counseling. He is leaving to head back to New England for the summer in about a week, and he is still having difficulty walking and can't kneel due to complications from his knee replacement surgery. 

Mr. Willse would appreciate some help by able-bodied people in moving outdoor furniture into his shed and packing the bed of his pickup truck on Tuesday, April 21st from 5 - 7 PM. He has offered a reward (aka refreshments) for those who can come out to help. 

Mr. Willse has requested that everyone please RSVP so he can figure how much reward to get.  Please register online or if that is not possible, please contact Mr. Willse directly to RSVP. He will also be at the meeting on Monday, April 20th if you have questions at that time.

May 1-3: Four Peaks Dual Route Backpack

Posted by tking on Apr 12 2015 - 3:44pm

This a great opportunity for both younger and older scouts to backpack the Arizona Trail in the Four Peaks Wilderness. We will be in the cool pines at an average elevation of 6,000 feet. There will be two routes.

  • The shorter route - an excellent hike for younger scouts/inexperienced and/or first time backpackers will hike 2 miles in on the Arizona Trail and camp near Shake Spring. They will then take a day hike (without their full backpacks) up to or near the summit of Browns Peak. They will hike out the same way (2 miles) on Sunday. Estimated total mileage: 7 miles. The short hike is open to all scouts/adults.
  • The longer route will hike 10 miles to Buckhorn Creek and camp overnight. On Sunday, they will continue on to Roosevelt Dam and complete the entire segment of the Arizona Trail (AZT Passage #20) (HikeArizona Info: AZT Passage #20). Estimated total mileage: 19 miles - The long hike group must be age 14 or older OR have permission from the Scoutmaster to participate.

Both groups will have a short religious ceremony on Sunday morning. The short hike group will pick up the long hike group at Roosevelt Lake before heading home.

Mr. Hetrick, Mr. Mobley, and Mr. Oless will co-chair summer camp this year. They will be making announcements and you can contact them with any questions. Unlike Camp Raymond, you will need to select your merit badges as soon as possible. Camp Geronimo runs merit badge classes on a preset schedule.

Visit the Council Web Page for Camp Geronimo for detailed information about the camp and merit badges.

Campership Information
For any boy whose family may have trouble with the cost of Summer camp, there are camperships available from both the Grand Canyon Council and a special Troop 365 fund, and procedures for applying for camperships can be obtained from the Committee Chair. Council campership applications are due by April 13 to be considered for upcoming summer camping activities and turned in to Ms. Buchanan..

Don't forget that you can apply your troop account balance to your summer camp registration fee. Scouts can build their troop account throughout the year by using the Fry's Food Store gift card account program as well as participating in the Flag Fundraiser by placing and retrieving flags from subscribers yards during 6 federal holidays each year. Your account balance is calculated in early June before the last camp payment is due.

Visit the Troop Summer Camp web page for full information about Summer Camp.
