Scouting For Food
January 28th and February 4th
Each year Troop 97 participates in the Nationwide Scouting for Food campaign. On the first weekend, we will distribute Scouting for Food Bags in our local community so that residents can fill them with canned goods. On the second weekend we will collect the filled bags and all will be delivered to Loaves and Fishes. This event is our largest service project of the year that had a substantial and immediate impact on those in our community. Therefore, we require all scouts to participate on either weekend.
Food bag distribution will be Saturday, January 28th, 9:00-10:30am. Please see the Sign Up for details:
Food bag collection will be Saturday, February 4th, 9:00-10:30am. Please see the Sign Up for details:
Troop 97 Medication Slips
|Effective November, 2016, Troop 97 has a new medication policy for all camping trips and overnight events. If your scout needs medication on the trip, each bottle of medication must be submitted with a medication slip. This slip is available on the Parent Resources page of the website.|
February 24-16, 2017 - Camp Grimes
Scouts 13 years of age and younger can participate in a day long adventure consisting of pulling a Klondike sled through cities in Alaska and taking part of scouting challenges at each city. The skills needed are Tenderfoot through first class, so if you are a scout 13 or under you WANT to participate and put your scouting skills to the test. There will also be activities for our older scouts this weekend including Sea Base prep. Registration is now open.
There may be a series of Klondike preparation weekends ahead of the February camping trip. These are highly recommended for all scouts that will be participating in the Klondike competition. More information to come in the weeks ahead fro the SPL.
