Troop Packing List

Allatoona Aquatics Base

Posted by bgalloway on Jan 16 2019 - 5:44pm

Allatoona Aquatics Base and Troop 422:

Have you heard of the Atlanta Area Council Aquatics Base? (http://www.campallatoona.org/)  If not, you need to know about this wonderful resource that is in our backyard! The Aquatics Base was originally built on the shores of Lake Allatoona as an overflow for Woodruff Scout Reservation. Still in use today it hosts Troops and Crews for all of the Boy Scout Aquatics needs.  During the summer months the Atlanta Area Council hosts Merit Badge Clinics for Lifesaving, swimming, rowing, canoeing, small boat sailing, motor boating and more. The property also has 11 campsites available for year-round use.

Troop 422 is excited to adopt a camp site at the aquatics base. This will lend a hand to the support and up keep of the property and be a source of pride for our Troop. In return, Troop 422 will be part of the vital part of the maintenance of the property; including providing service hours helping with shore and trail clean up and site maintenance.

We would like to begin our partnership with the Aquatics Base next weekend. We need to gauge the availability and interest of our Scouts to camp from 1/18 – 1/20. Because of the proximity of the camp we can also cater to those who may not be able to camp but would like to come and earn a few service hours. Please let David Surrency djsurrency@gmail.com know if you are available for the weekend or even just a few hours.  If you’re looking to camp in January and are unable to make the Yonah trip this one is for you! Please let David know by Monday 1/14/19 as campout planning will need to happen at the Monday meeting. This campout will cost just the price of food as camping here is free!

Itinerary: Depending on the turnout these are a few of the things we can accomplish next weekend.

  • Tidy up our site – define patrol camp sites within site, fire ring maintenance, trail maintenance, shore line clean up (our adopted site has some of the best shoreline at the base)
  • Scout skills – Those who have not yet checked off on their Firem’n Chit and Totin’ Chit will be able to do so.
  • Service hours – The base needs several shores cleared of drift wood. We will have the ability to build a huge bonfire on the shore that “can be seen in space” to quote the base leader!
  • And more  – there will be time for fishing, relaxing (bring your hammocks!!), orienteering (First Class requirement anyone?) and general Scout comradery.

Scout Closet

We now have some items in the Scout Closet trunk and Carey Surrency will be bringing it to the next few meetings.  Please bring any BSA uniform items in good condition (clean and without stains or holes) to exchange for a new-to-you item.  If you do not have anything to exchange you can purchase items for $5 each.  Please bring exact payment as I will not have change.  I look forward to helping our scouts get some great deals on great items!
