May Camp Out

Posted by bheldke on Apr 30 2021 - 7:45am

Join us for the Amazing Race Camp Out.  Two teams, bragging rights, cool prizes. 

We didn't plan it this way, but our May Camp out and OA ordeal were planned for the same weekend,so when our May Camp Northville was cancelled due to COVID, we decided to meet at the same location for ease of logistics with parents with multiple scouts.

What is Amazing Race?  friendly competition among two teams.  We'll build, we'll race, we'll compete, and have a lot of fun.  Also we can check out the Pedro Trail, the D Bar A camp store, the museum, etc.  

We will be staying at the Cristoph Campsite in the Trout Lake sub-camp.  Sign ups start now.  $30 covers food and campsite.  This is a great opportunity to put your scout skills to work!  

OA Ordeal--for those elected, the OA ordeal is the same weekend at the same place.  Coincidence?  I think not!  Please see this link to sign up separately.

Camp Northville Postponed until 2022

Posted by bheldke on Apr 15 2021 - 12:02pm

Over the past several months I have been very optimistic that Camp Northville would be able to go on as planned with the new Covid-19 vaccines coming out, and Michigan’s aggressive stance on masking and social distancing.  However, like you, I have been watching the numbers trending in the wrong direction for several days. Coupled with a heavy dose of reality of how our scouts mix when there will be a couple hundred all together, I can only expect that there would be more than a few cases of transmission.  With profound disappointment, I have come to the conclusion that the best course of action is to cancel the Camp Northville event for this year.  In the near term, I will be reaching out to the leaders on the possibility of using Saturday, May 22nd as a day of civic duty. In the long term, we can plan a date for a Camp Northville event next spring. My sincerest apologies for any adverse effects this cancellation brings.  Yours in Scouting,  KH, Camp Northville 

 

Troop 755 will continue with alternate plans this weekend including all OA call outs are to register for the induction ceremony held the same weekend at D Bar A.  

Our SPL-in-training will lead a MYSTERY camp out to-be-named based on availability.  

 INSTEAD, please see this calendar entry on a City of Northville Clean up effort we'd like to do instead.  Sign up here for service hours.

 

Schoolwork Tutoring offer from Troop755 alumnus, Aaron Kowalczyk

Posted by mchalom on Mar 23 2021 - 10:27pm

Hi, my name is Aaron Kowalczyk. I am a former member of Troop 755.

 

Through Scouting, I was able to accomplish a lot of great things; from being elected Senior Patrol Leader to achieving the rank of Eagle Scout (Eagle #193), but mostly importantly learning the value of giving back to others. Along with some fun campouts, looking back the best parts of scouting was the ability to give back to the local community. 

Scouts can beta-test a Merit Badge phone app

Posted by mchalom on Mar 16 2021 - 9:52pm

The BSA is seeking Scouts to beta-test a new app called the Merit Badge Helpers app.

Scouts ages 14-20 can apply here; they will need parental permission and any emails will also be sent to parents. Scouts should expect at least a four-hour commitment testing the app and providing feedback.
