By popular demand, Troop 1001 will be returning to live aboard the aircraft carrier USS Lexington for 2 nights in Corpus Christi. And, so that we can see what Texas looks like from underneath, our return trip will take us to Inner Space Cavern near Georgetown. We will also enjoy a few of the sites and attractions in Corpus Christi. Details coming soon!

Please sign up online. The bus holds 56, so we need an early headcount to decide whether additional transportation is needed.

Cost will be $200 for adults and scouts and includes all meals, charter bus transportation, lodging on the ship and admission to all sites. The first payment of $100 will be due Nov. 10 (also Money Monday) with a check made out to Troop 1001. The second payment will be due Dec. 8. Sign up will close Dec. 10.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Merit Badge Counselors Needed For Winter Camp

Posted on Dec 12 2014 - 2:40pm

It's time to start thinking about Winter Camp!  Each year in January, Troop 1001 leaders and adults host Winter Camp for the scouts.  This year, Winter Camp will be held January 16-18, 2015 at Hidden Cove on Lake Lewisville
