Schedule change for this weekend's Assimilation Campout

Posted on Mar 24 2017 - 12:31pm

For Scouts attending this weekend's Assimilation Campout: rather than gathering at St. Mary's this Friday evening for a 6 p.m. departure, we will meet Saturday morning at Camp Wilson between 6:30- 7:00 a.m. This will give us time to prepare the campsite and eat breakfast prior to the the 10 a.m. arrival of the new Scouts. I apologize for the last-minute change, but circumstances at work prevent me from making a departure this evening. Thank you for your flexibility.

Philmont Itinerary Book Added

For Philmont bound scouts/scouters, the 2017 Itinerary Book has been added to the "High Adventure Resources" section.  Additionally, you are encouraged to use www.philsearch.org to assist you in selecting itineraries that have the program elements you desire.  We will meet immediately following the Court of Honor on 27 March to discuss Philmont itineraries.

Toy and Book Drive -- Bring Items Today

Posted on Dec 19 2016 - 1:08pm

Greetings Troop 301,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Please remember that I will be collecting NEW AND UNWRAPPED toys and books for my toy and book drive during this week's meeting and the following one. Just find me during any point of the meeting and give me your item. Also remember that I am doing this drive to give presents to those who are not as fortunate as we are and cannot afford Christmas gifts. I hope that you all contribute.

Rescheduled: June 24-26 (Fri-Sun): Canoeing Campout

Posted on Jun 15 2016 - 6:22pm

An outfitter will supply boats and get us on the Rappahannock River. They will then pick us up on Sunday and return us to the start point. The Rappahannock sounds really nice with lots of great views and cool camping spots. Most all of the river's edge is protected land or private property, so the scenery will be fantastic.

July 16-23 (Sat-Sat): Goshen

Posted on Jun 5 2016 - 8:45pm

It's time to register for our summer adventure at Goshen’s Camp Marriott (7/16-23).
The discounted fee of $360 is available if we get your payment by April 10. As an extra incentive, everyone that pays by April 10 gets a free Goshen ball cap. While the fee includes all meals, it does not include the $45 round trip bus transportation option. We recommend the bus since Goshen is 3.5 hours away. You can pay for camp and the bus in one check. Checks can be passed to us at a Troop meeting. Please make checks out to "Troop 301 BSA." (Fees increase to $400 between April 11-May 15 and to $440 after May 15.)
