It's Time to Update Your Youth Protection!

Posted by sgarcia on Mar 29 2020 - 7:58pm

Many of our adult leaders need to renew their Youth Protection Training (YPT) in March and April.  You are required to retake training every 2 years.  Please renew your training as soon as possible.  If you are not sure of when your YPT expires, Susan will have a list by the next Troop meeting.  

If you have not taken YPT training, but join us on camp outs, Please complete your training now.

Training is found at http://www.my.scouting.org.  YPT training is found at the top right corner of the opening page.  Training takes about an hour.  Please email or provide a paper copy of your completion certificate to Susan.

All Scouting Activities Canceled

Posted by mastarr on Mar 16 2020 - 6:26am

As a reminder, due to the school closures due to COVID-19, and of course for all of our protection, there will be no Troop meeting tomorrow and the coming weeks.

 Unfortunately, this also means that the Survival camp out is cancelled this month.  I know many of our Scouts were looking forward to this, so I am sure Mr. Wells will reschedule this activity as soon as possible.

 The quarterly Court of Honor will also be rescheduled as soon as possible.

 Scouts, stay on top of your school work and wash your hands!  Be sure to get some time outside (personal fitness!).  This is also a great time to work on your merit badges - like Emergency Preparation!

 Please reach out to Mr. Wells or me with any questions or concerns.

Troop 422 to Northern Tier in 2021!

Posted by sgarcia on Mar 11 2020 - 4:34pm

Troop 422 has been awarded a slot at Northern Tier for 2021!

Northern Tier is the Boy Scouts of America's gateway to adventure in the Great Northwoods.  Our Crew will enjoy a canoeing adventure on the Boundary Waters in Minnesota from June 15th to June 24th.

Considering all BSA high adventure locations, Northern Tier is the most economical!  With a Crew of 8, the fees for the adventure is about $800 per person.  With travel and some equipment essentials, the total cost should be under $1200 per person!  Yes, profits from pine straw and camp card sales can be used towards this trip!

Scout attendees must be 14 years old by the 1st day of the trip (June 15, 2021).

So what does this mean?  We need YOU!!  We need one more adult and 1 more Scout!

You you want to attend this awesome adventure, a $100 deposit will be due. We need to pay our deposit to Northern Tier later that week to secure the spot.
