Are You Tough Enough Campout

Posted on Jan 17 2020 - 5:23pm

Event:  Are You Tough Enough Campout

Location: Sid Richardson Out Island

Start: February 21, 2020 - 6:00pm

End: February 23, 2020 - 12:30pm

Wilderness and Urban Survival Campout

Wilderness Survival:  Scout that do not have the Wilderness Survival Merit Badge can earn this badge during two Monday meetings and this campout.  You will learn the basics of surviving in the Wilderness with minimal supplies.  You will bring all the materials you need to survive in your pockets.  (Bring you sleeping bag in case the temperature drops.)  You will be sleeping in a shelter that you build from supplies found on the island. 

Urban Survival:  For the older, or more experienced scouts, this is the path for you.  You will only be allowed to carry a light daypack as we hike in to a remote section of the property..  Everything you need to survive should be in your pack, including fire building supplies (absolutely no matches or lighters), survival gear – including aluminum foil, knife, paracord, and water treatment supplies. You will need a heavy duty survival blanket, NOT the aluminum survival blanket that fits in your pocket. Your survival shelter will be made out of this blanket.   It is required that you bring a sleeping bag, but do not put this in the daypack.  We will only be using sleeping bags if the temperature drops.  There will be competitions to “win” food that will test your survival skills, such as matchless fire building, shelter design, and a few surprise events - as usually happens in survival situations.  Some of the food may be wild game, similar to food that a survivalist may capture. 

Here are the 5Ws:

Who: Scouts of Troop 928
What: Are you Tough Enough Campout
Where: Sid Richardson Out Island 
When: 21-23 Feb, 2020, Cost is $25 per person.
Why: Because it is fun to test yourself in Survival Situations!

****Given the structure and training of this campout, this is NOT a come and go campout. We will be hiking in and staying “somewhere” on the island.  We will try and canoe to the island, weather permitting.  There will be no opportunity for late arrivals to join the group on the property, or leaving early.

To All ASMs and parents:  This campout will require more adults than a normal campout since we will be splitting into two groups.  We will need at least 8 – 10 leaders.  All adults will be able to sleep in their tent, if they desire.

Hello Scouts and Scouting Families,

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/Happy New Year!!  I just wanted to update everyone on Summer Camp 2020.  The winner of the location for 2020 was Camp Wehinahpay Mountain Camp in Sacramento, New Mexico.  We just got confirmed and registered for the week of July 5-11, 2020.  Please save the date and plan on joining Troop 928 for a wonderful week in the mountains of New Mexico.  We will add a registration link to the Troop 928 website soon, and also send out important dates for payment, health forms, and merit badge requests.  

I encourage everyone to visit the camp website: https://www.wmc-boyscouts.org  Here you will find links to the various activities this camp offers including numerous Merit Badges, as well as Trail to First Class, Wilderness Survival, Fishing/Fly Fishing, Robotics, Welding, Shooting, Climbing, COPE, Mountain Man, and ATV Adventure.  This camp truly has something for everyone!!

 As always, we need at least 5 Adult Leaders to help with planning, organizing, and attending Summer Camp 2020.  For any parents wanting to become more involved and share this time with your son, this is a great opportunity and location.  This is also a great time and opportunity for anyone wanting to become trained for Assistant Scout Master and complete IOL.

Life to Eagle Workshops

Life Scouts! Remember that there is a Life to Eagle workshop on Monday, 1/6 at 7:00 p.m. This workshop is designed for those Life Scouts just starting their journey to Eagle and will go over all the steps to complete the process. Star Scouts who are close to Life status and Life Scouts with questions about the process are also welcome.

We will have additional Life to Eagle workshops on 1/13 and 1/27. The 1/13 session will focus on choosing an Eagle Project. The 1/27 session will focus on completing the Eagle Required Merit Badges. The Merit Badge counselors for Camping, Communications, Cooking and Personal Management will be available to help Scouts make a plan to finish those required badges.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Jun 7 2019 - 11:09pm

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates. (click on "read more" to see name and email FF )
