Summer Campers & Parents - May 1st DEADLINE !!!!!!

I just loaded two excel documents onto the Troop website to assist you with planning your signup activity for camp run merit badge and activities.  I added these two files in a new Folder under the Camping folder.  The new folder is called "Tashosa-Summer-Camp-2015".   The file  "Tahosa Planning Schedule"  is an abbreviated schedule showing the Monday - Friday activities for which we need to pre-register each scout.  Please review the schedule, read the other posting about summer camp and then use the "Tahosa Merit badge Signup" form to rank order the Merit badges and Activities that you want to get signed up for during camp.

Summer Camp - Tahosa Eagle Point - July 12 - 18th

Posted by ahalingstad on Apr 19 2015 - 5:16pm

Summer Camp is coming and it's going to be a great week!  While it still seems far off there are only a two weeks until we need to register for merit badges.  We will schedule some time during the next few scout meetings to have some discussions about summer camp.  Please read the rest of this announcement and particularly the section on camp run merit badges, Cope and Climbing for which will we need to register in the next few weeks.


Camp Program Schedule

The Tahosa Eagle Point camp is a combination of Camp Directed Merit Badges and Troop run Merit Badges as well as other camp activities.  

Troop-Led Merit Badges (8:30 – 12:00 Monday – Wednesday & Friday)

One of the unique parts of EaglePoint’s schedule is the ability for troops to teach their own merit badges, and MondayTuesdayWednesday, and Friday mornings are reserved for this time. During this time, limited staff help is available, but a large part of the planning, equipment, and teaching falls on the troop.

The exception to this rule is Thursday, which is set aside as an open day, and we encourage troops to plan some sort of off-camp, or all day activity. For troops staying on camp, the staff will be offering an offsite climbing trip (invitation only), a guided hike up Mt. Audubon (early morning), an opportunity to complete the five mile hike, and various other open activities throughout the day.

Staff-Led Merit Badges (1:30 – 5:00 Monday – Wednesday & Friday)

Afternoons are a time for troops to either continue their own program, or Scouts can participate in staff taught merit badges.  There will be two time slots for most of these activities: 1:30-3:00 p.m. and 3:30-5:00 p.m.  

The merit badges led by staff include:

·         Archery

·         First Aid

·         Wilderness Survival

·         Environmental Science

·         Canoeing

·         Rowing

·         Orienteering



Other Activities requiring registration:

Two other camp run activities will occur daily that will require preregistration. 

  • Low/high ropes (Introduction to COPE) – held during morning, afternoon and evening sessions. 

  • Climbing - will be held from 1:30-5:00 p.m  Mon – Wed & Fri.  There will also be open climbing time in the mornings and evenings.

Evening Activity Time (7:30 – 10:00 Mon – Wed)

Evenings can be spent participating in various open activities, troop programming, or merit badge make-up for Scouts who missed that day’s portion due to participation in Low/High ropes. Wednesday night will be the Wilderness Survival outing for Scouts taking that merit badge.

More information will be coming soon and we will post additional information and merit badge signup forms on the troop website soon.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Pallozzi or Mr. Davis.    Thanks.

They want to know by Tuesday, so I need everybody that plans to go to sign up on the Troop 808 website by the end of the day Monday, April 20. There's more information on the website. Thank you - Kevin F., OA Rep.

Sell Camp Cards - Go to Colorado Adventure Point

Posted by linda.fitzjarrell on Apr 11 2015 - 10:12am

That's right! The Troop Committee agreed that if all 300 Camp Cards are sold by May 7 the Troop will schedule an outing to Colorado Adventure Point (climbing wall , shooting range, or STEM lab) and the Troop will pay half the cost! The Scouts price to attend will be on a sliding scale in correlation with the number of Camp Cards sold - the more you sell, the less your cost to attend will be. It's such an easy sale too - Camp Cards only cost $5 and there's a $5 off coupon to Old Chicago on the Card, plus several other great savings (like $13 off at Elitch's). In addition to all that - $0.75 for each card you sell will be credited to your Scout Account - the top selling Scout will receive The Golden Fob - and the top selling Patrol will receive a special Patrol Flag Ribbon. PLUS for every 25 cards an individual Scout sells, they will be entered into one of the Council's five drawings for 1 of 2 $50 Walmart Gift Cards. So get out there and sell some Camp Cards so we can all enjoy a really great time at Colorado Adventure Point.
