Summer Camp: H.Roe Bartle (6/23-7/3)

Posted by fsaenz on Feb 21 2024 - 11:13pm

 

H. Roe Bartle. Camp Bartle is a 10-day summer camp in Missouri near Joplin. Bartle offers the only ten-day camping session in the country with over 40 merit badge classes. Due to this, Scouts can potentially earn as many as nine merit badges! Not including the ones we usually offer ourselves in our own campsite! 

In addition to merit badges, Camp Bartle offers the opportunity to participate in the premier leadership program, Tribe of Micosay. This program teaches Scouts the importance of giving back by highlighting the Scout Oath and Scout Law while paying respect and appreciation to Native American culture.

We would like to encourage all scouts interested in signing up for Bartle Summer camp to do so as soon as possible.  We need to have a final head count by February 25th so that we can reserve enough spots.  If you are a scout who has never attended Bartle, you will have an excellent opportunity to earn up to nine merit badges.  If you are an older scout, don’t pass up the opportunity to take part in the traditions of the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation, set in the beautiful hills of central Missouri.  If you are a tribesman of the Tribe of Mic-o-Say and you are over 18, don’t forget that you are still eligible to earn paint until you turn 21.

The first of two payments of $285 is due by February 25th.  Your parents can pay by check, online, or through the Scout’s account.  Sorry for the short notice, but circumstances dictate that we make arrangements as quickly as possible.

Cris DobbinsNestled in the middle of the Black Forest in Colorado, Camp Cris Dobbins offers sweeping views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains. In this week-long campout Scouts will have a hard time choosing between the more than 50 merit badges and will love spending time on the water slides at the outdoor pool, paddling in the lake, hiking the many trails, or dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range. Not including the Trail-to-First Class program we usually offer in our own campsite!

Service Opportunity: Volunteer for Pack 820/850 Blue And Gold Banquet (2/24)

Posted by fsaenz on Feb 7 2024 - 6:31pm

It's time to help the next generation of Scouts! Volunteers are needed to assist Packs 820 and 850 at the Blue & Gold Banquet on Saturday, February 24th from 4:45pm to around 8:30pm. The Packs need Scouts to help with: setting-up tables and chairs, serving dinner, manning the Photo Booth, cutting & serving cake, and clean-up.

Troop 845 has a special bond with each of these Packs as their current Cubmasters, Javier Ruiz (820) and Dan Gieselman (850) are also leaders in our Troop, and they will be stepping down from those roles during the ceremony.  Please sign-up HERE to join them in the celebration and help them have a great evening.

Leadership Training for Senior Scouts: NYLT

Posted by fsaenz on Feb 7 2024 - 6:30pm

THE COURSE: National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed six-day council-level program designed to provide Scouts in troops, crews, and ships with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and other situations demanding leadership of self and others. The course is designed for Scouts BSA members who are at least 13 years old; are First Class rank or above; and have successfully completed ILST training.

WHAT YOU WILL DO AND LEARN AT NYLT: NYLT: is filled with activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and camping in a team and model unit environment. Participants learn and practice skills that are valuable at home, church, school, work, and the Scouting unit. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ leadership skills much faster. These skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

THE RESULTS: First of all, you will have a lot of fun at NYLT! Activities are built around the idea that Scouting is “a game with a purpose.” You will meet new friends that share your interest in Scouting and in becoming a stronger leader. Participants report that NYLT helped them develop better communication skills, greater ability to coordinate activities and program, increased understanding of the roles and skills of a leader, and many more.
