CAMP BUFFALOTHE WINTER EVENT February 16, 17, 18, 2018

The deadline for Camp Buffalo is also fast approaching. We must have sign up and fees by February 5, 2018. Camp Buffalo is an opportunity for archers and scouts interested in Railroading Merit Badge. We will be doing archery after breakfast and doing Railroading MB after lunch.

Patrols will be cooking three meals on Saturday and the Troop will send them off like ‘Mountain Men’ with Sunday morning breakfast fit for outdoorsmen.

The cost for Camp Buffalo is $25.00 per person. That includes cabin rental, Sunday breakfast, archery, the Hoosier Valley Railway Museum visit and the game tourney with prize. Patrols will buy their own food for Saturday. Patrol menus are due in Mr. Gawne’s hands at the start of the meeting on February 5, along with the patrol minutes for the meeting where the menu was developed. Remember that you are cooking over outdoor fire, not propane.

Patrols needing troop equipment will submit the equipment requisition form on Feb 12. DO NOT count on the Troop trailer making the trip. If snow conditions are bad, the trailer will stay in Chicago and ONLY what your patrol has requested on an equipment requisition will be on the trip. Patrols will bring their patrol boxes to the troop meeting on 12 Feb for loading.


Get out your hat with the horns and prepare to land at the Viking Ship! Our annual trip to Rokolio will include a stay at the Viking Ship. March 9, 10 and 11 are the dates for fun and games at one of our favorite locations.


Crossover will be April 27 – 28 at Camp Solomon Crown, Wilmot, Wisconsin. The weather will be perfect and we invite all parents to come out for free dinner and really cool ceremony and watch what their sons in action doing really good stuff. Mark your calendar.


A new Medical Condition Update Form for Outings will now be required for each scout to be completed and turned in at departure time of each event. Please click here for the form.
