Summer Camp

Posted on Feb 22 2017 - 9:12pm

     I made available the merit badge list from 2016 for Camp Winnebago at tonight's weekly meeting.  This list is a good representation of what will be offered again this summer.  There may be a few additions or deletions.  The 2017 version should be available within the next 30 days.  This will also tell us what date we need to submit our selections.  I will make the new information available as soon as it is available.  Thanks......Mr. McElhenney   PS - the question was asked what does the (IS) mean after certain merit badges.  It means independent study.....no formal classes are held.....you do the material at your own pace, make arrangements to review with a counselor, and get the requirements signed off..... thus completing the merit badge.

Thank You from a Military Member

Posted on Jan 20 2017 - 10:47am

We received the following note from one of the military members who received a package that the Troop helped prepare with Support the Troops:

My name is Michael, and I just wanted to say thank you. today I just received a package from you, troop 131 Boy Scouts, and a few other members. The package helped make my day and definitely made this deployment a lot easier. I am glad that there are there are still good people like everyone that help make this package back home in the States. It helps remind me what I am fighting for. Thank you so much! You have requested to know when we will be returning home and the replaceing Units address. My Unit will be home in January. I do not have the replacing Units address but when I get it I'll be more than happy to send it to you so you guys can help make their deployment go by easier. I can't say this enough thank you for what you guys did. God Bless!

Merit Badge Night Changes

Posted on Jan 8 2017 - 8:22pm

For many years, the Troop has offered "Merit Badge Night" on the second Tuesday of each month as an opportunity for Scouts and counselors to meet.  Due to decreased attendance on those nights and to provide us another night of skills instruction, we have decided to try something new this spring. 

Merit Badge Counselor Applications

Posted on Jan 2 2017 - 5:17pm

  Several months ago many of you signed up to be a merit badge counselor. To date I have been able to submit only a few merit badge counselors packets to Minsi Trails Council.
