Troop 19 Scout Camp Grounds Clean-Up is the long weekend of Thanksgiving. If you and your scout are sitting around on Friday morning wondering what to do, get dressed in your best work clothes for some community service time (required for every scout rank advancement).  The Troop will be working to debrush the grounds around the scout cabin and clean up the side of the foundation wall.  Just think how great it will make everyone feel to give back some time to the program that everyone enjoys so much.  This will provide the troop with more usable outside space for activities.

So mark your calendars, sharpen up your loopers or pruning shears, find your work gloves and get ready for a great time.

We will start at 8:00 am and work through the day.  The Troop will have plenty of water or bug juice to drink so no one has to worry about getting dehydrated.  I have even heard rumor of a great lunch to be served to all the hard workers.

Can't wait to see every scout, parent, sibling or friend of the Troop helping on this needed project.

Troop 19 will be staying at Metro Rock in Newburyport, MA overnight Friday, December 1st doing indoor rock climbing.  We will meet at the scout cabin at 6:00 PM, after you eat dinner with your families, and arriving at Metro rock around 7:15 PM.  Our program starts at 7:30 PM and ends at 9:00 AM Saturday morning.  During this event, the Troop will be learning proper used of safety equipment, proper knots for climbing, proper applying of a climbing harness, climbing methods and belaying.  Scouts will also be completing requirements towards the CLIMBING MERIT badge. 

The cost of the overnight is $65 per person climbing.  There will be additional cost for a late night snack and breakfast on Saturday morning.  As we always do, the total final cost will be announced and collected after the trip is complete.

At this time what is needed is for each scout to complete and turn in both a Metro Rock release form and a Troop 19 permission slip. These forms are required to attend this trip.  The DEADLINE TO TURN IN THE FORMS IS AT THE TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21 TROOP MEETING.  This is required to confirm our reservation and complete our plans.

Parents if you would like to attend and not climb there is no charge accept for food.  If you would like to attend and climb the cost is the same as the scouts but you do not earn the merit badge.

Can you believe it has been 7 weeks since the Troop has had a bottleshed.  Now it is time to get everyone back together and empty a full shed.  There is no football, track,or soccer so  everyone should be available.  As in the past we will all meet at 8 am at the shed to sort, bag and box cans and bottles.  As all ways many hands makes it a quick and painless job.
