Troop 347 has an active couple of months ahead as they plan out a very busy spring time schedule. We have three camp outs scheduled over the next two months.
First up is the troop PGA campout on March 8th which focuses on the boys achievements and some of the essential skills that they will need as a scout. We will have classes for rank advancement, totinchip, fire starting, orienteering, and others. We will be camping in cabins which is a nice bridge for the first year boys to get used to being away as well as allowing us to run some courses indoors even if the weather is poor.
Our second campout is a special one night campout on April 13th for all our new scouts. We highly recommend this trip as it is their first run at a full campout with the Boy Scouts. They get to work as a patrol and learn how to set up their tents and gear with no pressure of having another agenda to worry about. If your first year scout is planning on summer camp, we highly recommend this campout to get them on their way!
Finally, on April 19th, the troop is heading to Governor Dodge State park. This is a new location for the troop and is Wisconsin's largest state park. It has large bluffs and cliffs to both climb and hike around (the picture above is Ennie Point which we will climb) and fantastic trails and scenery. This is a regular troop camping event and we look forward to seeing everyone there.
