Summer Camp !!
The Troop has made reservations for Summer Camp at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch for 6/11-17. We were last there for summer camp in 2013 and had a blast, so we are excited to be going back again.
SR2 is a great camp in the Longhorn Council Area about 6 hours from Katy. With over 70 Merit Badges on offer, there is something for everyone. From Swimming and Sailing to F-16 Simulators and Nuclear Science there truly is a phenomenal selection of MB's.And if you thought Texas summers were hot, wait till you earn your Metalwork in a real Blacksmith's shop during a Texas Summer!!
And Blobs, don't forget the Blobs!!
Online Sign up is now available - book early to ensure your spot!!
Merit badge selections will be coming soon, very soon!!
See Mr. Polk for more details, and check out the photo album on the Yahoo Groups site

HMNS Summer Programs and Scout Saturdays
If you haven't discovered them yet, the HMNS program is a great way for the Scouts to earn Merit Badges on weekends and at Summer Day Camps, all taught by experienced adult MB Counselors. They have a great catalogue of Merit Badge courses, including several that are Eagle Required.
Please make sure to collect your Blue Cards from the Merit Badge Coordinators before attending the courses!!
