From February 17 – 19, Troop 1000 is heading for the trails at Cleburne State Park. Scouts will hike and cook on the trails for an adventurous morning and afternoon. Be ready for departure at the church at 6 pm sharp. Prepare for cold weather camping. Check the Hiking Permission Slip (New Scouts will have separate costs and permission slip. This is for second-year Scouts and up.) for return time and other special instructions. As always, print it, put it in an envelope with cash in exact and small bills and write the Scout’s name and Patrol on the envelope.
2/18-19 – NEW SCOUT CAMPOUT
Our New Scout Patrols will be learning the basics, at Cedar Hill State Park. Arriving Saturday morning at 9am, they will set up camp, kitchen and KP area before diving into cooking, basic Scout Craft and Scout rank advancements. SOOO much to learn, so little time before they head off to a good night’s sleep and awake to a hot and hearty breakfast. The New Scouts will be returning to the church on Sunday.

When: April 1, 2017 (No joke)
Where: UT Dallas Campus
Time: 8 am to 5 pm
Cost: $15 per Scout; bring $5 for lunch
From time to time an opportunity comes up for our Scouts to take advantage of a “Merit Badge College” – or a series of classes covering multiple MBs all at one location in a short period of time.
The Alpha Phi Omega Scouting Service fraternity is offering just such an opportunity at UT Dallas on April 1st (no joke) this year.
The Circle 10 council, Golden Arrow District and Troop 1000 have approved and endorsed this college. While all requirements may not be able to be passed while attending for the required time, T1000 MB counselors will help Scouts complete any requirements not covered or signed off in the classes.
Scouts should discuss the MBs they are interested in signing up for with their Patrol Advisor and obtain Blue Cards from them. Scouts should be prepared to review what they have learned with Troop counselors.
There is a long list of many MBs, a lot of them Eagle required, that Scouts interested can sign up for – space permitting (sign up soon).
Here is where you will need to register:
