Rafting Trip - Sign up Now!

Posted on May 20 2018 - 12:08am

Scouts and interested parents—Our biennial rafting trip and campout will be Saturday June 16th / 17th. This event is open to all scouts. Sign up Here

We host this extremely popular trip every other year. It is a fabulous Father’s Day weekend event and sells out. We arrive Saturday morning at the Adventure Connection rafting facility where we go through safety training and are fitted with safety equipment. Each raft will go through class III and IV rapids. An experienced guide is on each raft. Buses will take us from the facility to where we embark on the day long trip. Adventure Connection will serve lunch part way into the trip. Upon arrival at Folsom Lake we will board buses for a return trip to our campsite. 

This is a fun trip for scouts of all ages. Dads and moms—this is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day! 

The cost is $100 per person including the rafting trip, lunch and campout Saturday evening. Date 6/16 & 6/17. We will raft the Southfork of the American River including Class III & IV rapids. Lunch served Saturday during trip.

Summer Camp Info

Posted on May 16 2018 - 9:17pm

Hello Summer Camp Wolfeboro families,

I am Dave Robb and I will be leading Summer Camp Wolfeboro for Troop 224 this year along with John Faber and Tim Hird.  We have 17 scouts and 8 adults attending camp this summer and we are going to have a great time in the southern Sierras just below Bear Valley ski resort up Hwy 4!  Look at summer camp as three steps:  1) Pay for camp  ( 100% done and registration is closed).  2) send in all of the merit badge/ rank advancement classes your scout will be taking at camp  3) The everything else/ work out all the details bucket.

Step 2 – send me all your scouts classes and times.

The attached 12 page pdf is everything you and your scout need to figure out what Rank advancement and merit badge classes he will be taking.

Page 1  0 - the daily schedule.  You will see there are six 1 hour blocks of time for your scout to choose up to six classes at camp.  You and your scout should use this chart to figure out your scouts daily schedule.  Please email me the courses and times your scout decides to sign up for and I will enter all the information into the Wolfeboro system and confirm they are signed up.  The deadline for turning in classes to me is May 31, 2018.

Page 2 – IMPORTANT – All new scouts need to sign up for rank advancement.  The chart calls this “Trailhead” and it is known as “ the fast track to First Class” – You will see at the 10-11AM and the 3-4PM slots under trailhead “tenderfoot to 2nd class.  Make sure your scout signs up for one of these 2 classes to work on his Tenderfoot rank.  He can also take the “2nd class to 1st class or the “tenderfoot to 1st class” courses.  Older scouts should also sign up for at least one rank advancement class if they need to work on rank advancement.   All scouts can work on any of the 3 categories, tenderfoot, 2nd class and 1st class at the same time.  It is not necessary to complete one to be working on the others.  Camp Wolfeboro recommends your scout sign up for Two of these trailhead classes to advance quickly.

Page 3 -  Money – This is a list of all of the merit badges that require an additional $10-$25 for supplies.  If your scout signs up for one of these classes, please make sure he brings the extra money for the class ( to be turned in at class).  In addition to these expenses, Wolfeboro recommends you send your scout to camp with $100 in spending money.  He might not spend it all, but good to have.  They also don’t want large bills so lots of $10s, $5s and $1s.  One of the adult leaders can hold $ for your scout if necessary.

Page 3,4 is a list of all merit badges offered at camp and pages 6-12 is a broader definition of all those merit badges.

Please email me your scouts classes as soon as you can.  I will be sending a second email next with notes from the leader meeting for camp.  Here’s to having a great adventure at Camp Wolfeboro with troop 224!

YiS,  Dave Robb
