Important summer camp info please read carefully!

We will be going to Camp Sinoquipe this coming year for summer camp. Because of the potential late school year end date, and a late start in booking. we will be going week three July 3-9 2016.

This camp has been listed in the top five summer camps for the entire East Coast. The cost of summer camp this year will be $360.00 if paid before 5/01/2016.

The camp offers over 50 merit badges as well as Cope and a program called mountain man. The latter program is only open to 12 scouts age 14 and up. Please find below the link to the camp, I suggest you check it out as soon as possible to see if any of the space limited courses are right for your scout.

DC Trip Re-Scheduled

Because we didn’t get the minimum group # requirements, the August trip to Washington D.C was postponed to Wednesday Sept. 23rd (public schools are closed for Yom Kippur). Hopefully, more people will be able to attend in September.

Since we still can’t put attachments in the the eblast, here are the preliminary details (exact times will be adjusted once tour times at the musuem are set):
Meet @ FUMC in the morning and drive to Metro Station (approx. 7:30?)
AM Tour @ National Geographic Museum to see Indiana Jones Exhibit and Monster Fish Exhibit
Lunch at a nearby restaurant or cafe
Walk to Koshland Science Museum for afternoon tour
Take Metro back to cars and drive back to FUMC (arrive approx. 6:30 pm?)
FAMILIES welcome
Since there are still some problems with the eblast, I’m hesitant to send links to the museums, but simply do a web search and you can get more detailed information about the exhibits. I will have permission slips available once the museum times have been confirmed.

Please email Michele to let her know if you’re interested.

What can you do for BSA after you turn 18? Work for BSA!

Joshua Murdock, Troop 899’s 15th Eagle Scout, has been working for the Denver Area Council of BSA this summer as an intern. He was hired to create a blog and Instagram account for DAC to post pictures and write stories about cub scout and boy scout camps throughout the summer in the region. He has posted some great things so far; his most recent article is about the national scouting organization from Poland that just held it’s annual jamboree at a local Denver area scout camp. Their history and involvement in WWII is amazing!!! It’s truly a must read for any scouter! Click on the link below to enjoy this and other stories:

If anyone is available on the 19 and 20th of September to sell Popcorn, please contact Dawn Fitzgerald at This is a camping weekend for the troop, but if anyone is going to be home and willing to sell to give us a good push on the sales, that would be great. The more we sell the more profit we make. All sales are for the Sea Base Trip in 2016. Please let Dawn know ASAP so she can schedule other dates and places. Also, if any one knows of a business that will purchase large amounts for there employees as gifts that is a great sale. CORPORATE SALES!!!
