To prepare our Scouts for the next level of leadership, the Troop will be conducting a Scout Leadership and Planning Camp Out from Friday, September, 13 to Sunday, September 15. We will be tent camping at Rotary Scout Reservation and using the patrol method for meals.
On Saturday morning, the Scouts will be working with Andrew and Liam Costello from the Rotary Summer Camp staff from 9 am to noon. The Scouts will be focusing on learning teamwork, respect, and cooperation – the essential ingredients for a successful boy-led Troop. After lunch we will be working with the Scouts on establishing and assigning the Troop positions of responsibility. We will be reviewing the different leadership positions and the responsibilities for each position. We will then conduct Patrol and Troop elections for the different positions. The Troop will then plan our activities for the rest of the year.
There will also be plenty of time for fishing, relaxing, and working on Scout skills. Save the date. More information to come.
