We had a great showing at the Troop 412 25th anniversary celebration at Camp Naish. It was cold, wet, muddy, and A LOT of fun. After the Philmont group rejoined us, we went to the mess hall, where we had an amazing dinner and ceremony. We got to meet a lot of Troop 412 alumni who came back to share their experiences with us. On Saturday, it was warm enough that the ice melted. The downside is that it was muddy, muddy enough to get Mr. McBee’s Jeep stuck in the mud! We all also got cool patches! Some of us found Camp Naish’s “point.” The first years made hot chocolate and some shared! Saturday night however, was very, very, cold, and not a lot of us stayed warm.
- Ryan Campbell- for the great, mostly ad lib, emceeing.
- Tom Stevens, Cathy Stevens and Bob Rolle- for the excellent food that we all loved.
- Tanner McBee and Co.- for the wonderful cobbler that we very much enjoyed.
- Nikki Luginbill and her crew- for the beautiful decorations.
- Pat Wilcox- for taking 6000+ pics and turning them into a slide show.
- Mark Enke- for the awesome belts and bracelet for our adult leaders.
Thank you all and everyone else we may have missed for making this event happen.

Wow! Troop 412 sure had a blast at the 2015 Annual Scout Day at the K event. It was an exhilarating game from start to finish as we took on the Oakland Athletics. The Troop sat together in our own little area and cheered the Boys in Blue on to yet another victory, making their record 8-3. The final score was Royals 4, Oakland 2. The game was action-packed, full of suspense, drama and hot tempers. The referees made some bad calls against our team and our coaches got really mad. Some of them, including Ned Yost, the head coach of the Royals, got kicked out of the game! Overall our team did very well, even though they didn’t score a lot in the first half of the game. But they made an awesome comeback in the 5th-9th innings. Man, you should have heard the crowd every time we scored: it was so loud, it sounded like a jet plane’s propeller right in your ear! There were some pretty close calls when balls got hit our way, but none of our Troop ended up catching one. The game was exciting and fun, and everyone had a pretty good time!

CLICK HERE to sign up for the February campout and/or 25th Anniversary Celebration.
The One Homeless Night campout hosted by Troop 412 will raise awareness and money for the homeless.
The theme of the campout if for Scouts to experience what it’s like to be homeless for one night. Each Scout will be getting a scenario for the night like, “You were recently divorced and your wife got the house”, “You just returned home from active duty and haven’t got a place to live yet.” or “You just got out of jail and are having a hard time securing employment and a place to live.”
Even though this is a serious topic, we always have a lot of fun at this campout so we hope a lot of Scouts will participate. Scouts can bring cardboard and create shelters to sleep in.
The campout takes place on Friday, December 12th, 5:30pm, in back of the Olathe Christian Church by the shed.
Supplies you can bring: sleeping bag, pad, pillow, warm clothes, and a water bottle. We suggest NO TENNIS SHOES.
We will be accepting cash donations the night of the campout which will be donated to Johnson County Interfaith Hospitality Network, Inc.
We encourage you to raise funds by telling friends and family that you are participating in the One Homeless Night. Minimum recommend donation per Scout is $10
Troop 412 finds some time during our weekly meetings to have some fun. Here we are playing Boy Scout Pictionary.
