Upcoming Campout / Summer Camp Sign ups

Posted on Jan 14 2023 - 8:35pm
We have some upcoming events for January and February that we are trying to finalize details for.  Right now though it looks like we don't have the Adult leadership/chaperones for these campouts.  Can everyone please take a look at the following campouts and sign up if your Scout will attend AND if you are able to attend as a chaperone if you are not an ASM:
1. Eisenhower State Park - January 20th-22nd : https://www.troop416.us/node/3652
2. Top Shot Scout Camp - February 17th-19th: https://www.troop416.us/node/3673
We also need to look at who will be attending Summer Camp in Colorado since this is a long trip and we would need multiple adults to commit.  We also need to register the Troop ASAP if we do have a good number of Scouts/Adults who are able to go, so please sign up ASAP.

Mulch Kickoff and Salesmanship Merit Badge - January 8th Troop Meeting

Posted on Jan 5 2023 - 4:38pm

This coming Sunday we will be kicking off our annual mulch sales presentation.  Please attend to get all of the details on how to sell, price and other information related to dates and the fund raiser.

We will also be offering the Salesmanship merit badge for any Scout looking to earn this.  It is a great opportunity to earn this badge since you are already doing most of the work on this with Mulch sales!

Troop WoW this Saturday

Posted on Nov 30 2022 - 11:38am
Just a reminder that we will be hosting several Webelos packs this weekend for our local Webelos Outdoor Weekend at the PMLC.  The event is this Saturday, December 3rd from 8-1PM in the Church Parking lot.

We are expecting a decent number of Webelos to attend and want to demonstrate several Scout Skills such as cooking, camping basics, fire building and talk about our Troop History.  We've also had some requests for help with some AOL requirements about how to take care of knots and also about some basics of Scouting.

Please take the time to come out and support the Troop.  We currently only have a handful signed up and it would be really great to see more of our Scouts helping out.  This is also intended to help bring in new Scouts to our Troop, so would be great to see everyone (including our Eagle Scouts) come and lend a hand.
Since we will be hosting this event, there will NOT be a Troop meeting this Sunday.
Please sign up here so we can get a better feel for attendance: Boy Scout Troop 416, Plano TX | Troop
