2021 Spring Camporee

Posted on Apr 22 2021 - 8:42pm

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!

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)

Troop 1855's COVID-19 In-person Meeting information

Posted on Nov 1 2020 - 7:49pm

Sacramento County has been cleared for small, in-person meetings, and Scouts BSA is allowing in-person meetings that comply with national, state and local rules. As a result, our Scoutmaster, Committee Charter, and Charter Organization have approved detailed guidelines for in-person meetings, which will shortly be posted on the troop website under Files within the COVID-19 folder https://www.troop1855.org/taxonomy/term/1387Please review the guidelines before participating in an in-person meeting. Please know that the safety of our scouts, our adult volunteers, and their loved ones is our primary concern.  We would not plan in-person meetings if we did not firmly believe they are both as safe as possible and good for our scouts.  We intend to make every reasonable effort to pursue both of those goals. That said, we understand that not every scout or adult may feel comfortable meeting in-person.  For those who are uncomfortable, please do not feel pressured to meet in person before you are ready.  This is a choice that each family needs to make for themselves.  No scout should feel left out or left behind, and we plan to continue having virtual meetings so that all scouts and their families can be included in the activities of this troop.
