The SoA Council Camporee is this weekend. This is a chance to learn, camp and advance (if you want) at TL Storer. It will be cold, colder than you are used to as we are further north (colder). I’m fine if you bring shorts, but I’m not ok if that’s all you bring. We will have a gear check before going - gear should include pants, boots, hats, gloves - so be prepared.
We will also need to setup camp, post a duty rooster, and manage trash, fire, water jugs and weather report. Scouts will need to follow the buddy system. This is a good tune up for our troop.
The weekend after is the Town’s Drop Off / Swap Off, a great time to do service for our town.
That weekend, live the scout law like you do in everyday life but especially be friendly, courteous and kind as you represent Troop 132 and the Town of Concord to all the other troops we will be working with.
Do your good turn, each day and you can start by helping your patrol pack tomorrow and helping each other prepare.
Yours in Scouting,
