We would appreciate all parents sign up for the Remind service.  This will be used for important communications that are time sensitive - such as letting parents know that we are running late (or early) when returning from a campout.

Welcome back scouts! It’s been a long summer and we’re all pretty out of practice but we can get back to our scout duties now. We welcome our new scouts to our humble group of troop 1701. We have to scout out new campouts for this year, which will happen during our next meeting, September 12. Popcorn is really popping up everywhere this time of year, so we should get to selling it ASAP before everyone is stalked up on it! well , thanks for reading this and we hope to see you at the next meeting!   - Gavin V, Webmaster

Sash N' Bash: an Ordeal of a Campout

Posted by GavinV on May 24 2017 - 7:03pm

This campout is one of the few campouts that people, that have been elected, to join the Order of the Arrow. Although this campout had a few bumps in the form of bad weather, we had an amazing campout otherwise. The Order of the Arrow, or OA, is a great honor for a scout to have, but it doesn't come cheap. For an ordeal, you have to show service to the OA in the form of fasting for the day, 4 hours of service projects and an oath of silence for about twelve hours. After that, for Saturday, you get a huge feast for dinner and breakfast the next morning. Those of us that did not Participate and/or did not join the OA participated in fun activities such as games and live concerts. In any case, congratulations to the new OA members on their entry into the OA. Even though most of us got soaked in our sleep, our spirits stayed high! Thanks for reading and hope to see you on the next campout!

Conservation Camp Out: Branching Out to the New Scouts

Posted by GavinV on Apr 26 2017 - 8:29pm

This campout was amazing over all. For the new scouts, this was a completely new experience and they did amazing in learning the ropes like setting up our kind of tent and cooking on a grill. On Saturday we did some different nature-based merit badges and we cleaned up sticks from a graveyard as well as a bonfire and hilarious skits and some random hilariousness. Sunday was a day of review and clean up. We all learned our effect on nature and how to save the environment through our different merit badges. We all had an awesome time at the campout and we hope to see you there next year.
