Next Tuesday, June 14th, is Flag Day.  Our charter organization, American Legion Post 437, is holding its annual Flag Day observance and Flag retirement ceremony.  The Scout Troop will be participating.  All Scouts should attend and should come in full Class A uniform.  The Ceremony starts at 6:00pm - please arrive at 5:30pm so that we can review your role in the ceremony.

June 26th - 27th Saco River Canoe Trip - Signups due Tonight

Posted on Jun 9 2016 - 3:19pm

Please Note: Scouts and Adults need to complete swim tests prior to this trip.  If you have not completed a swim test in the last 12 months you will need to test at the upcoming swim test event (date TBD).  Tests completed at last year's summer camp satisfy this requirement.

The last trip of the year for Troop 437 is a 2 day canoe trip on the Saco River. Participants will arrive on Saturday morning, we will be fitted out for our trip on the river, then embark down river for a day of canoeing. After a day on the river, we will arrive at the Landing campground where we will spend the night. Then, on Sunday morning, we will continue down river for another day of canoeing. At the end of the day on Sunday, we will be shuttled back to the starting point.

Our plan is to transport our gear on Saturday morning to the campground. Therefore, it's not necessary to have your gear waterproofed for a canoe trip. You will however want to bring water bottles and other key items for the day on the river.

Scouts will pair up in canoes. Younger scouts and scouts without canoeing experience should pair up with older scouts or adults. All participants will be expected to wear life vests. If you would like to bring your own canoe please contact the scoutmaster to adjust the cost.

All Scouts and Adults must have completed the BSA swim test within the last 12 months in order to pair up with other scouts.  

All participants must complete a Saco Bound waiver. Parents must sign for scouts. Multiple family members can be covered on same waiver.
