Posted on Nov 4 2016 - 1:22pm

Troop 78 in Loudonville is looking for Merit Badge counselors for their December 17th merit badge college.  If anyone is interested, please contact Charles Patricelli at cpatrice@nycap.rr.com.  From the email I received, it looks like our scouts will be able to participate if they want.  However, I have not yet received any information on sign-up, cost or what merit badges they are offering.  Once I do, I'll send out to the troop so our scouts can take a look if interested.

Brant Lake Cabin Camping - December 9th - 11th

Posted on Oct 31 2016 - 6:57pm

Brant Lake cabin camping is a perennial favorite of the troop.  The cabin is about as far from "roughing it" as you can get.  Two full bathrooms with showers.  Full kitchen.  Bunk room upstairs with bunk beds with mattresses.  There is a camp to explore, hikes to take and plenty of space to do what scouts do.  Cost will be $15/person for food.  We typically do a single menu for the whole group given the access to a full kitchen.  And we eat very well!  Please bring your money for the outing and permission slips to the November 30th meeting.  Johanna Sullivan will be collecting both that night.
