Upcoming Campouts -- Drivers Needed

Posted on Oct 17 2021 - 11:24pm

The troop needs parent support to transport scouts and gear to the monthly campouts.  The troop is not using a trailer any longer, and gear is transported in Mrs. Horton's van.  We have scheduled campouts to be close to home (~1/2 hour drives from Shrewsbury).  We are very thankful to Mr. Stoffel and Mrs. Ware who drove scouts/gear to the September campout (over an hour away), and Mrs. Ware was a last minute need.  The week of the campout, Mrs. Horton will announce the driving needs - Friday nights and/or Sunday mornings.  This is also a reminder that scouts need to register/regret response to campouts by meeting the week before the campout (10 days before).  This allows time to plan drivers and purchase food.  The upcoming campout locations are listed below:
