Troop and Crew leaders,
We need some help running a few of the rotations Saturday, March 10th. Looking for scouts and crew members (First Class or higher) that can help for the day or come and spend the weekend with us. (March 9-11) The activities are already planned….we just need scouts to help the Webelos and Bears with the rotations. I am specifically looking for help with the events during the day on Saturday…. Also, need help teaching the Bears/Webelos how to work a compass and cook... Lunch will be provided if coming for the day. If you are staying for the weekend, your scouts will be invited to eat with a Webelos or Bear Den. No cost to Boy Scouts or leaders that attend.
If the individual troops approve the boys can earn service hours. The scouts can also work on camping and communication merit badges at WW2018. Plus the scouts will get credit for camping nights if they sleep in a tent they pitched.
