Join us for a week of fun June 14-20... sign up for Summer Camp during Monday's Troop meeting! Due to schedule changes this month, the initial sign-up and payment due dates have been extended. Reserve your spot today! The first payment is $170. You can pay online, use your Scout Account, or bring cash/check with you to the meeting. 
The first 8 adults to register for Summer Camp get to go FREE OF CHARGE! We need your help at camp, adults, so we are rewarding the first 8 to make the commitment. Stay for the whole week or split it with a friend. Regardless, our boys cannot go to camp alone. Besides, Camp Hale has lots to offer us 'big kids' as well. From leader-specific training to water rescue and wilderness first aid, you can brush up on your skills and certifications or just relax and enjoy the beautiful Winding Stair Mountains. Spend a week with your Scout and his friends...you'll be glad you did!
More details to come as we get closer to June. If you have any questions, please contact our Summer Camp Coordinator, Mr. Otte, either via e-mail at trey@otte.us or via cell phone at 214-402-4718. See you at Summer Camp!

There are several upcoming opportunities for adult training:

Adult Leader Training (ALT) - Boy Scout Leader Specific is March 18th, 25th, and April 1st.  This is required in Troop 1001 for anyone working directly with the boys, Assistant Scoutmasters, etc.  This is also great information for any parent of a scout; the course content is how a Boy Scout troop operates on the boy and adult level.  It is valuable to all parents to know how the organization operates whether they are active in the troop or just as a parent of a scout. More information and sign-up is found at http://ntrail.org/?q=content/boy-scout-leader-specific-begins-3182015

Outdoor Leader Skills (OLS) - There is a second course, Outdoor Leader Skills, which is a fun weekend campout which goes over the requirements for Tenderfoot through First Class.  More information and sign-up is found at http://ntrail.org/?q=content/outdoor-leader-skills-weekend-410-122015

Wood Badge - This course follows the above courses.  The Course draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor organization throughout the country.  It is offered by Circle 10 several times a year. The next courses will be held:
Wood Badge 113 - Camp James Ray, April 10-12, 2015 and April 24-26, 2015
Wood Badge 114 - Philmont Training Center, August 16-22, 2015

Many adults in Troop 1001 have taken this course and can explain what a great learning experience they had taking the course.  See http://circleten.org/wood-badge for more information.
