2017 Buckeye District Baden Powell Turtle Camporee

BackpackThe 2017 Buckeye District Baden Powell Turtle Camporee – also know as the “Turtle Hike” is coming up at the end of April  This is a Backpacking trip in the Buckeye District that happens only once in four years.  All participants who complete the trip and conservation project will receive a neckerchief and Turtle Medal.

We will assemble at the church Saturday morning at 7am April 29th and travel to the trailhead east of Mt. Vernon. Once we have checked in, we will hike 8 miles along dirt roads and cross country to the camporee site. During the trip we will perform a conservation project along the river. At the camporee we will eat as a unit, enjoy a scout campfire program, witness an OA Callout, and enjoy a late cracker barrel before lights out.  Sunday morning we will hike 9 miles back out to the trail head. We will then head back to the trail for scout pickup.

Since this is a backpacking trip, you will special equipment and there will NOT be a trailer joining us. You should plan on carrying everything you need – tent, change of clothes, at least 2 liters of water, snacks, 10 essentials, etc – on your back. There will be water and latrine at the camporee site.

For food, we will need to see how many participants we have before making plans, but in the past we’ve eaten as just one large group. HOWEVER, you will need to pack your own trail lunch for Saturday. Our meals for now will be something like this:

Saturday Breakfast – eat before you arrive

Saturday Lunch – Bring trail lunch

Saturday Dinner – to be determined

Sunday Breakfast – to be determined

Sunday Lunch – to be determined

The outing permission form, an information sheet, and a suggested equipment guide are available in our Troop Downloads area.

New Scout Parent Meeting

Scouting LogoFirst off, congratulations and welcome to the Troop!  Our scouts, scoutmasters, and committee members are all excited to get to know our newest members.
As parents of a young man crossing over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts, I’m sure that you have several questions. We do our best to answer them at our New Scout Parent Meeting each year.
We invite all of the parents of our new scouts to join us during the Troop Meeting on April 3rd (7:00 – 8:30).  We will cover registration & dues, uniforms, camp-outs and outings, volunteer opportunities, and much much more.  Our scouts will have a couple of brief presentations for you as well as a Q&A session with some of our assistant scoutmasters and committee members.
For the parents of Pack 466, who have their crossover ceremony on that night, our Scoutmaster will be at the crossover with several of our scouts to cover the same information.
If you have any questions beforehand or if you are unable to make that meeting, you can e-mail the Scoutmaster or find him or any Assistant Scoutmaster during our regular Troop meetings.
