High Adventure: 2016-17

Posted on Jul 28 2016 - 10:22pm
Orig. Post: March 1, 2016
High adventure treks are one of the most memorable experiences offered in Scouting, but it takes advance planning to make them happen.  At this time for summer of 2017 the troop only has Philmont trek dates, July 5-17, 2017, leaving Richardson on July 3. To hold a space on the Philmont crew make a $100 deposit with the troop treasurer. The troop didn't receive any Sea Base adventures in the lottery for 2017; there is a slim possibility that something will open up at Sea Base.  
We are planning on a Winter Philmont trek between Christmas and New Years, 2016.  This will probably be 2 nights in the backcountry at Philmont and 2 days of skiing. Philmont doesn't take applications until summer.
Contact Mike Reisinger with any questions.

Merit Badge Information for Adults and Scouts

Posted on Jul 28 2016 - 10:22pm

Merit Badges (MB) are a key part of a boy's advancement in scouting; for a MB to be earned, several things need to take place.

1.  Trained MB Counselors are needed. Any parent in the troop can take the training and to be available for the boys as they partake in each merit badge per the necessary requirements.

2.  Boys are responsible for getting a blue card, getting it signed before starting the MB, and checking on the troop website for the name of the counselor.

3.  Boys are responsible to do the requirements. Many times for particular MB's, counselors will offer classes to help the boys complete all or some of the requirements (e.g. Citizenship merit badges, Personal Fitness).

4.  Many times boys have partially completed MB's from Summer Camp or other group presentations. Sometimes there is not time, or a location to complete all the requirements during class sessions.  This can become a big problem as many boys have 5 to 10 or more partially completed merit badges. Again the boy is responsible for going to the MB Counselor in the troop to complete the MB.  A boy's complete advancement record is available on the troop website, including any partially completed MB's.  Boys and parents should review their record regularly.

If you have any questions on merit badge advancement, ask Mr. Reisinger or Mrs. Danen.
