The troop needs to decide on High Adventure for 2015, there are two possibilities and several boys have said in the troop meetings that they are interested in going.  Parents talk with your son(s) and if they are interested, email or call Mike Reisinger or Kirk McClure, whose contact information is on the Troop Roster.
The troop has a Sea Base sailing adventure for 6 scouts and 2 adults, see below for details.
The troop is looking at two other possibilities, both minimum age completed 8th grade when you attend.
1.  Swamp Base in Louisiana, see http://www.bsaswampbase.org/ for more information.
Here is more information on Swamp Base:
Vermilionville is a living history museum and folklife park that we go to the day we get there, in order to be familiarized with the history and culture of Acadian, Native American, and Creole cultures that we will be experiencing on the Swamp Base trek.
University of Louisiana, Layafette: Cypress Lake; we would be staying in the new dorms here the night we get there, and the night after the last day of paddling, and will be able to see Cypress Lake, in the middle of campus.
Swamp Base new website, good information, but the video isn't active on this link yet.
