T347 News

Fall Session 2014

Welcome back from summer break!  I hope that all of you had a wonderful time.  The troop was busy over the summer with both our summer camp and Philmont High Adventure.  Now we're back to regular meetings and beginning our fall sessions.  If you are a Webelos scout, we'd love to have you come for a visit on any of our activities!

Summer Break is Starting

What a great start to the year.  We've had an incredible time with some really terrific campouts and activities.  While we have some exciting trips over the summer, there will be no regular meetings until August when we resume activities.  Please keep checking here for news on Philmont, Summer Camp, and other trips that might happen.  In the past we have planned canoe trips and gone sailing in August!

This weekend, Troop 347 has it's showoff campout.  This is an opportunity for the boys to display the skills that they have learned through the year as well as celebrate a conclusion to the regular scouting calendar.
