Troop 301 has reserved the Hayden Villa Cabin in Camp Lewis, a BSA camp in Rockaway Township, NJ. We stayed in lean twos at Camp Lewis last year, so this year will be a different experience. Our winter sport will be snow tubing. Tubing will take place at nearby Mountain Creek. The event fee is $31 per person. If we have a large enough group for group tubing prices, there will be a refund of the difference in price to your scout account. Of special note, a parent must fill out the Mountain Creek Tuning Waiver at www.mountaincreek.com/upload/photos/2242011-12TubingWaiver.pdf Hand in the completed waiver with your permission slip and the event fee. Tour Leader: John Stickevers. Permission Slips due 1/22
Cangratulations Troop 301!
Winning the camporee skills competition over 19 other Benjamin Tallmadge troops and finishing 2nd overall in the sled race is something to be very proud of.
The troop will enjoy using the new Coleman stove and camp Dutch Oven Cooking Table you won.
Speaking of camping equipment….Remember to clean and dry all the equipment used at the camporee and return it to the QUARTERMASTER or your patrol box at the Thursday January 22nd meeting.
