Service Projects/Scout Account Opportunities

Posted by ksullivan on May 21 2016 - 6:01pm


We have opportunities this summer to provide service to our community for your rank advancements (and because it’s the right thing to do) and to help raise money for your scout accounts.  Wear either your Class A or B uniform except where noted.  We will need parents assistance also, especially at the Recycling and WineFest events.
Tuesday, May 23, 6:00 – 7:00 pm.  First UMC   All Scouts.
    Troop 261 is a POST Partner for the concrete part of Memmen Trail from the edge of the church parking lot up to Oman Rd.  A sign on Oman Road notes our participation.   We will meet at the church then split into two groups to pick up all that winter trash along the trail.  The Town of Castle Rock will provide trash grabbers and trash bags, buckets for sharp objects, and water bottles.  Bring a pair of gloves and the completed form attached to this email (one per family).  We will finish in time for the regular scout meeting.  We will regularly do maintenance on the trail throughout the summer.
Saturday, June 11, Douglas County Community Recycling Event, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, Sports Authority Stadium in Parker.   This event is free to the public, so they need a large number of volunteers.  We will be helping with the shredding portion.  Breakfast, lunch, snacks, and water will be provided.    Bring your own shredding and electronic recycling when you come.  Douglas County, the Sheriff’s department, and the DC School District are hosting this event. We need people to sign up early for this one so they can make sure they have enough volunteers.

Summer Camp

Posted by ksullivan on May 21 2016 - 5:25pm

Summer Camp June 19-25 Sign up  HERE


Rugged, lean, and mean; Camp Dietler is Peaceful Valley's “patrol cooking camp.” Here, troops will participate in a back-to-basics style of camping that gives Camp Dietler its bold and exciting character. Scouts will pitch their own tents, cook food as a patrol and learn how to work as a team to make their week successful. Camp Dietler will take your Scouts in, show them the true meaning of "hardcore" camping, and spit them out ready to take on any challenge nature can throw their way.
