February Adirondack Campout-At risk of being cancelled

Posted on Jan 25 2023 - 8:24am

While we won't be having a meeting tonight, could Scouts please update the website with their attendance or regrets status on the February Adirondack campout. The deadline is fast approaching and we need to make the reservation and decision if there are enough Scouts to go. If there are any questions about the campout or what to bring, please contact the Scout Master by email or phone tonight.  We will extend the deadline to next Wednesday for payment due the weather cancellation of tonight's meeting.

Inclement Weather Procedure

Posted on Jan 25 2023 - 8:11am

Just a note about Inclement Weather and how we make decisions. Troop 227 makes weather related decisions to hold meetings or events based on Shrewsbury Public School Superintendent's decisions about school cancellations. Our general policy is to cancel meetings and events based on those decisions. We would announce cancelation as soon as possible, but at least 2-4 hours prior to the event. Scouts are based on the moto "be prepared" and it is a good practice to involve the Scouts in how the weather decisions are being made.

Summer Camp has landed on the schedule for the 1st session of camp in the first week of July. We will be starting the planning but be rest assured we have secured for our troop the best week at the best camp sight location (Evergreen) and with a discounted rate! This years theme will be space exploration!! Start thinking of all the ideas we can come up with this year for a fun time!  If you are planning to go, please look to start getting the camp forms to your pediatrician for sign off since that tends to take some time. We hope to get Scouts fully registered in April. More information to come soon!
