Below is the link to the signup for the upcoming Mafeking Campout. We will be camping Friday August 8th through Sunday August 10th. The campout will be at the William Landahl Park (Mud Mountain). We will be leaving from the church Friday night and returning Sunday morning to the church.
For our July camp out (July 11-13) we’ll be camping at the Heartland Center near KCI/Parkville. Take a look. Heartland Presbyterian Center
Reach new heights as you are challenged to overcome barriers on The Summit’s 40’ tower or zip through the air on our 220’ zip line! Trained facilitators will customize your challenges to meet your group needs. Your experience can be designed to build self-confidence and awareness, focus on team support, and inclusion. And it’s just plain fun!
“The Summit was a great experience. We grew not only as a group but as individuals. Our department has a completely different feel about it.” – High School Department Faculty
Participants must be at least 10 years old and have completed 4th grade, wear closed-toed/closed-heeled shoes. All safety equipment and orientation will be provided when you arrive for your adventure.
We have the 9am – 12 pm slot for the course, and we may also participate in a service project.
We need to get a firm headcount by Thursday July 3. Please complete the High Ropes Camp Out Questionnaire. The cost will be $25 per person to participate on the course plus the camping is $100 per night so that cost will be divided out depending on the number of people attending (Average camp out attracts 20 campers, so best guess is $5 per night) – plus the grub costs. The center is 30 miles away so transportation costs would not apply.
Please complete this questionnaire, even if you do not plan to attend the camp out. Thank you.
It’s time for our annual March Bartle campout. This is the one where we do a service project at H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation, see our summer campsite and get a taste of summer’s best treat – a peach Nehi float. This is also the first campout for our new first year crossovers!
Traditionally, it rains a lot on this campout, so please come prepared for mud and rain! And stay on the official paths if you’re driving. You don’t want to end up like this:
Troop 412 will be having our September campout on September 13 to 15 at Shawnee Mission Park. The scouts have decided to LARP. LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing. The theme for the LARP will be Star Wars. If you are a Star Wars junkie, you will not want to miss this event. If you’re not a fan of Star Wars, you’ll still enjoy the competition and the “capture the flag” games.
We will be gathering at the church at 5:30pm and leaving for the park at 6:00pm. Please eat dinner prior to arriving at the church. The troop will return to the church approximately 11:00am Sunday morning. Please complete the attendance survey below. If attending, please also complete the permission slip. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Bill W. at email@example.com. May the force be with you.
Now, please enjoy “Star Wars Kid”. Twenty-eight million others already have!
What to pack on a canoeing campout:
▪ Sun block: This is very important, being on the water will intensify your exposure and you can get burned even on an overcast day.
▪ Chap Stick: Keep your lips healthy while on the water.
▪ Shoes for water: You should have shoes (tennis shoes or lake/water shoes) or closed-toe sandals with good support.
▪ Bathing Suit: Bring a bathing suit to paddle in or to wear while swimming.
▪ Towel: Towels are needed not only for yourself but also to dry things off.
▪ Sunglasses: Polarized sunglasses are great while on the water.
▪ Hat: Keep the sun off of your face with a hat.
▪ Undergarments: Bring extra socks and underwear.
▪ Non-Cotton Shirt: Polypropylene thermal wear is a good idea if the nights get cold.
▪ Extra Pants or Shorts: It’s always good to have a change of clothes when on the water.
▪ Hiking Shoes: Good shoes are important for around the campsite or if you want to hike.
