TACOS .6

“Teaching Advanced Crucial Outdoor Skills”

The Scoutmaster really needs scouts with the rank of Star, Life, and Eagle on this short camp at Camp Michaels.  Please consider giving him a hand. 

TACOS.6 is a great opportunity for older and younger scouts. Older scouts can enjoy managing small programs, mentoring and teaching younger boys, all the way to high adventure activity. Younger boy scouts can work on advancement skills and teach WEBELOS boy scout skills as well.

  • One night at Camp Michaels, each scout is responsible for their own food. The troop will serve Chili/Spaghetti for lunch.
  • No Cost for this Camping Trip to beautiful and rustic Camp Michaels. Woo Hoo!!

Adult Survey Fundraiser: Adults, we need your assistance on November 10th with a fraction of your time between 3:00-9:00 PM. The Spaghetti Fundraiser only produced 60% of what we earned last year. Please consider this date and place on your calendars. An email with sign-up link will be published shortly.
