Journey Church Service Project Summary

Posted on May 10 2021 - 6:07pm

Many scouts and parents volunteered to gather at Journey Church on April 11th to help with the Church’s campus maintenance to repay them for allowing us to use the Church for the Troop’s meeting spot. Our efforts included trimming bushes, mowing lawns, and taking multiple trips to the Folsom Library to shovel bark into the back of pickup trucks and drive it back to the Church to replace the old bark. Everyone worked very hard for many hours, and the Church was appreciative of our participation. While it was hard work, we enjoyed our time there and walked away with positivity. 

2021 Spring Camporee

Posted on May 10 2021 - 7:14am

This was my first Camporee and I enjoyed it a lot. It was on Saturday, April 17th at Sly Park at Scout Hill. There were many fun activities we did from archery to STEM. Many Troops from around the area attended. Everyone was wearing masks but we still had lots of fun. Events included Orienteering course, Charades on a “Twister” tarp, Flag Retirement Ceremony, Tomahawk Throwing Course, Archery Course, First Aid Quiz Station, Stretcher relays, Battle Ship and Stem Activities Station. The Space Seagulls and Aces patrol got third place in Twister charades! 

Scout Sunday

Posted on May 10 2021 - 7:13am
On Thursday, February 18th, we had a recording session for Scout Sunday. Due to the Covid restrictions at the time, we were unable to plan out an in-person sermon and instead had to plan out a recording session. The Doge patrol met up and led flags for the recording, and I led the prayer and read some of the scripture individually. Gabriela Gibson, the Chaplain Aid for the Girls troop, also was recorded for prayer and scripture. Mr. Sing and I also had a Q&A session about how the troop has functioned during Covid. The whole event was a success, and Journey Church compiled all of the clips into one video and posted it on their YouTube channel; and were very thankful for everyone who stepped up for this. Here is the link to the video in case you want to watch it: https://youtu.be/-LyT3QX3s2w

Order Your Class B Apparel by 4/25/2021

Posted on Apr 15 2021 - 11:57am

It's that time again...Time to order your Class B Troop Apparel.    Class B items are Troop Logo gear that we wear when we are out camping, doing service project work, or during the summer Troop/Patrol meeting - so that we don’t get our formal uniforms any dirtier than they otherwise might.  Purchases are not mandatory, but it is particularly nice to have a couple of the youth Ts for your Scout. You too can look good when out with the Troop. The Fleece jacket is nice to have at colder times of the year and is a popular item.  You can place orders through order forms found on our site Calendar (you will need to be signed in to access the link)
