Vol. 8 Issue 7
The June Campout was held at Camp Moultrie. While there 8 Scouts earned their FIRE and TOT'N Chips. Tenderfoot, Second and First class advancement items were taught and performed, & Fire building skills were tested. Special "Thank you's" to Adam Jones- acting SPL, & Greg Walsh- acting Quartermaster, also to Mr. Allan Rice, Mr. Pete Kordonis, Ray Maher, Bill Woolsey, and Jim Struble for their excellent leadership and informative instruction. The weather was Great, the swimming was fun and the water was warm enough for a great DUNKING. How big of a SPLASH does a Scoutmaster make?
The program Theme for June will be Health Care. The Tiger Patrol is the program patrol for the month. The Osprey Patrol is the service patrol of the month, responsible for helping set up meetings and cleaning up after the meeting.

Scouts are reminded that each patrol will get to pick a camp-out so each patrol needs to discuss ahead of time their preferences and have at least two choices. The adult leaders will also get to propose one. Troop 44 leadership will vote on the Council Camporalls along with 3 additional camps. Summer camp will need to be chosen also. So bring all ideas and have a voice in your activities. Good planning makes for a strong camping and activity calendar.
