August Outing

August 25 – 26, 2012
Location: TBD

We continue to build skills that have been well practiced at Summer Camp. Most of the boys will have either earned, or nearly earned, the Canoeing Merit badge at Summer Camp. This outing is typically a 10+ mile tour of a Class1-2 river. We spend Saturday practicing, and Sunday touring. What a great way to enjoy the dog days of summer – on a cool river!

Home & Hope


Most of us will encounter periods in our lives when things are difficult. Our Troop participates in a program to help families currently in such difficulty. Four times a year, our sponsor, Hillsdale United Methodist Church hosts a number of homeless families for a week as part of the Home and Hope program. We provide food, beds, and a place to share companionship with others. A number of sister locations sequentially host these families. If you believe, “There but for the grace of God, go I…” then you’ll want to give an hour or two periodically, to lend a hand setting up, or taking down, the facility. [Read more…]
