Sea Base Florida 2021

Posted on Jan 15 2020 - 10:59am
We have successfully reserved a Sea Base adventure for the Summer of 2021!
 
  Out Island Adventure Overview: The Out Island Adventure is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to live on a rugged barrier island. You begin your adventure by paddling roughly 6 miles out to Big Munson, an island only inhabited by Scouts. During your stay you have opportunities to fish for your dinner, fish for sharks, snorkel, kayak through a mangrove maze, explore the island, and work on your survival skills. Please note that activities are dictated by weather, tides and the ability of the crew. Your activity plan can vary, sometimes widely, due to these factors. Big Munson Island: Your adventure includes 4 nights, 5 days camping on Big Munson Island. Big Munson Island is a barrier island comprised of hardwood hammocks, low mangrove swamps and sandy beaches. Your crew will wade to shore from our vessels and, depending on the tide, the water may be knee high to chest deep. Your campsite will already be set up, including four-person tents to house up to two participants and all cooking equipment needed for your stay. 

University of Scouting

Posted on Jan 15 2020 - 10:00am

University of Scouting (UoS) is the premier one-day supplemental training opportunity for all adult Scout Leaders. UoS goes beyond Leader Specific Training to give Scout Leaders the knowledge and skills on specific topics that will help to deliver the promise of Scouting. The goal of UoS is to provide information that is practical and immediately useful on topics that are not readily available at the local unit or district level. UoS Instructors have skills and insights that have been developed through years of Scouting experience. It’s also a great opportunity to network with other Scout Leaders, make new friends, and share best practices across the Council.

Drugs and Alcohol Course for Second Class Requirement 7c at home

Posted on Jan 15 2020 - 9:56am

For those Scouts who have not yet completed the requirements for Second Class rank, here is a way to complete requirement 7c at home.  This requirement has the Scout participate in a course on alcohol and drug use awareness.  This is one of the few requirements that a parent can do at home with a Scout, although the Scout will still need to get the appropriate troop member or leader to sign off the requirement in their books.

Payments for Troop Activities

Posted on Jan 7 2020 - 5:50pm

It was decided by the Troop Committee that we will establish a standard fee for our regular monthly campouts.  It will be $30.00 per Scout and will cover camping fees, food, and transportation.  We have actually done a study of our activities over the last couple of years and this figure is representative of what our actual costs have been.  Of course, there are some weekends that come in a bit lower and some a bit higher, but it all evens out over the year.  If we should decide on an activity that we know will cost much more or less than usual, we will inform all that the fees will change for that particular event.
