Ice Blocking Activity Canceled - but we'll reschedule!

Posted by nsouza on Jan 10 2022 - 4:09pm
Wed, Dec 29: 7-9 p.m.
El Dorado Park: 24335 Carrillo, Mission Viejo, CA 92691

Scouts, join us for a fun night of ice blocking! What's that, you ask? SoCal's version of sledding! The troop will provide the ice and hot chocolate, you provide your own towel and bring a snack/dessert to share. We'll meet at the park and hand out the ice blocks. You'll carry it up to the top of the grassy slope, put the towel on it, sit down and slide down the hill. Wear warm clothes and enjoy some winter fun! Please sign up so we know how many ice blocks to purchase. Adults, siblings and guests are welcome for $5.00 each. Please plan to bring cash to the event and pay there - although they still need to sign up in advance so they have an ice block. Adults, if you sign up and want an ice block, please note that in the comments section, otherwise, we'll assume you're just coming to watch. Any questions, please contact Nancy Souza at nancysuesouza@gmail.com.

Merit Badge Counselors needed

Posted by nsouza on Nov 24 2020 - 7:02pm

Parents, we could use some additional merit badge counselors for the scouts in our troop. You don't need any special expertise, just an interest and basic knowledge of the merit badge. You'll also need to fill out some paperwork and take some online training, but that only helps you know what you're doing! Attached is a list of merit badges that have no counselor in our troop. If any of these appeal to you, and you'd like to help us out, please contact Nancy Souza at nancysuesouza@gmail.com.
