July Canoe Trip - Chickahominy Riverfront Park (Canceled)

Posted by wbnolenjr on Jul 19 2019 - 6:35am

Camping trip has been canceled due to expected high temperatures of 100, lack of shade on the canoe route, and challenges with getting a second adult leader due to vacations and such. We may look to reschedule on a future cooler weekend.

We plan to camp at Chickahominy Riverfront Park July 19-21.  Activity on Saturday will be to do a 5 mile canoeing loop that is available around Gordon's Island.  This is the same loop that we canoed last year in preparation for High Adventure.  This canoeing will satisfy one of the Camping merit badge requirements. We will plan to pack a lunch and eat it on the water while canoeing.  Signups for this camping trip can be found here: https://troop777.mytroop.us/node/8878.  

A swim test will need to be completed for those who want to be classified as a swimmer and be able to independently use a canoe. Non swimmers will have to be partnered with swimmers in a canoe to be able to participate in this activity. Please watch for announcements for opportunites to do a swim test before this camping trip.

Adults who want to go camping and have not filled out an Adult Application as a Comittee Member or Assistant Scoutmaster should turn in a completed form at the Monday meeting to give time for them to be processed before the camping trip.  Forms will be available at the Troop meeting or can be picked up at the local scouting store.

We will need adults to be willing to drive and transport borrowed canoes.  So far we have 3 canoes that will need transporting.  If you have a canoe that can be used for this trip, please let the Scoutmaster know.  Additional canoes needed for this trip will be rented at the park.

I look forward to seeing you all out on the water.  

Swim Test at Shady Grove YMCA

Posted by wbnolenjr on Jul 15 2019 - 5:27pm

We plan to meet at Shady Grove YMCA during the Scout Meeting time, starting at 7pm, on Monday July 15th to complete the swim test.   Afterward the boys will gather to plan meals for the camping trip before leaving the YMCA.  Parents need to plan to stay with their scout(s) at the YMCA so that they will be able to take the swim test. There is a liability waiver that will need to be completed to participate. Additional information including the liability waiver for this swim test event has been sent out in separate email to all Scouts.
