Reduced Outing Fees

Posted on Oct 7 2016 - 12:57pm

Good news! Troop 281’s scouts have done such a great job of fundraising that we can now lower the cost of each outing. For the rest of 2016, each outing will only cost $20 per scout and $10 per adult! With 9 overnight outings this year, that’s a savings of $90!

Scouting is an incredible value – only $20 for a full weekend of fun (and learning).

Way to go Troop 281.

Be a Merit Badge Counselor!

Posted on Oct 2 2016 - 6:52pm

The Merit Badge Counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a Merit Badge Counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a Merit Badge Counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.
