Electronics Campout

Posted on Dec 4 2022 - 10:37pm


Electronics Campout, cost $30 per person.

Camping Details:

  • We have secured an indoor hall for playing games on scouts electronic devices.  Scouts will sleep outside in Troop tents, OA members or scouts not needing camping nights may be eligible to sleep in cottages.
  • Adults may sleep inside the staff lounge on bunk beds or outside in their own tent.  It is likely to be cold so be sure to bring a warm sleeping bag, pad etc. and layers of clothes as it will be warm while inside the pavilion, but cold when you are outside

Electronics Details:

  • To attend this campout, you and your parents must sign the Conduct Form , no exceptions.
  • Each patrol is responsible for bringing all their own electronic equipment including televisions, gaming systems, extension cords, power strips, movies and games. Patrol leaders will need to coordinate with your patrol to make sure that you have all the equipment you will need for the weekend.
  • Scouts bring their electronic devices at their own risk. TVs and Electronics must be packed securely by the scout. There is no guarantee of safety of equipment from the troop.
  • Guidelines are as follows:
    • o GAMES: Only E and T rated video games
    • o MOVIES: Only G, PG and PG13 movies are allowed (some PG13 are not allowed due to content - use your judgment here, remember some scouts are younger than you)!!
    • o MUSIC: Appropriate music only-must not have a parental warning.

The Scoutmaster has the final say concerning the appropriateness of any of the above.

Andy L. Eagle Project Helper Request

Posted on Nov 25 2022 - 11:36pm

Dear scouts,

This is Andy L. I am hosting a winter junior tennis clinic for kids grades 2-6 on December 3rd, 8am-12pm (noon) for my Eagle Project. I am in need of helpers to feed tennis balls and run extra stations on the day of the event (no tennis experience needed!).

My Eagle Project aims to spark interest in tennis for children in Southlake and neighboring cities. This project will allow an opportunity for children to get together and enjoy the sport of tennis. On December 3rd, helpers would arrive at Carroll Senior High School’s tennis courts to feed balls and lead the children. Below is the Sign-Up Genius for those interested.

Requirements: Age 13 and up

(sign up under the “Boy Scouts Helper” option)

 Helpers would get service hours for the time period they help for. Please contact me through email or text if you have any questions! I’d appreciate the help!

2023 National Jamboree July 19-28, 2023

Posted on Nov 10 2022 - 3:48pm

2023 National Jamboree registration is now open for scouts.  You can discover all the details and register your scout  here.   This is not a troop event .  The event is held at Summit Bechtel Reserve located in West Virginia.

Jamboree is more than a destination. It’s the adventure of lifetime. And there is simply nothing else like it on the planet.

What’s a Jamboree? It’s not camp. National Jamboree is 360-degrees of fun, friends and fellowship with hands-on adventure that takes you places you never thought you’d go and challenge you to try things you never thought you could.

It’s the beginning of your own heroes’ journey that will challenge you to go farther than you ever thought possible. You’ll reach deeper and lift yourself higher to become the best version of yourself.

Seabase 2024

Posted on Nov 8 2022 - 10:14pm

Seabase is one of Scouting’s four High Adventure bases for older scouts aged 14 and above.  It has various aquatics programs centered around sailing, snorkeling, and marine life.  It is the least physically demanding high adventure trip and ideal as a Scout’s first high adventure trip.  Additional information can be found at www.bsaseabase.org

The troop is planning to send a crew for the St. Thomas Seabase High Adventure trek in June 2024.  Crew size can be 8 or 12 people.  A BSA swim test classification of swimmer and a valid passport is required.  A description of the St. Thomas Seabase excursion can be found here:  2022-Sea-Base-St.-Thomas-Guide-12.21.pdf (bsaseabase.org)

Seabase 2024 reservations open in January 2023 so we need to begin planning now to secure a desired slot, they will fill up quickly.  A financial installment will be required with your commitment to go to meet Seabase payment requirements.  Seabase cost per participant is $1,250-$1,300, plus travel and other expenses.
