Welcome!

 

Welcome to Troop 244 Website! 

Do you like adventure? Do you want to learn outdoor skills and know how take care of yourself and others in the wilderness? Do you want to lead others, learn new skills and serve those in need in your community? Do you want to cook over a campfire with your friends while breathing in fresh air and listening to the wind in the trees overhead?  Does hiking to a stream, taking off your shoes and jumping in sound like fun?  Would you dare kayak 5o miles down a river knowing you have been taught everything you need to know to do it? Will you feel proud after carrying a meal you planned in your backpack for 5 miles then cooking it for your friends on the trail? Will you build a fort in the woods and sleep in it, knowing you've built it well?

Join us.

Troop 244 can show you the path to fly like an Eagle. Seeking interested young men, of any faith from any school to join us in our journey.  Tuesday nights at 7 PM at Saint Pius School.  Please access menu link and send us an email for more information.

Service Opportunity - Cub Day Camp Volunteer

Posted on Jun 8 2017 - 4:48pm

Attention All Scouts and friends:

Volunteers are still needed for the Guilford District Day Camp, June 26-30

 

YES, High School students working on their Service Learning Diploma are more than welcomed to attend.  No they don’t have to be Boy Scouts, any High School student looking for hours is welcomed.

Please read on for deteils 

As you are aware, I’m the Program Director for the Guilford District Day Camp.   The camp starts in about 2 weeks and I’m still looking for about 10 more Boy Scouts to come out and help at camp.  Below is the areas I’m hoping to cover and yes I’ll gladly take your First year scouts as well.  If they don’t have Den Chief Training we do provide that for a small fee.  Any Scout that volunteers all 5 days is going to walk away with at least 40 hours of service.  And depending which station they are at they might even get some conservation service hours, some projects include: Monarch Butterfly program, we will be educating Cub Scouts about some plants that help keep bugs away and then planting some of the plants near the Concession stands.  To determine which stations/projects meet the Conservation service hours, I’m referencing the Council Conservation Committee Guidebook.

If you know anyone that might be interested please send them the attached brochure and forward my email.  Please have them send all inquiries to the camp email, listed on the brochure.  If scouts can’t volunteer all week then Monday thru Thursday would be greatly appreciated.  Friday is our Family Fun day so the program is completely different.  We provide a hot dog lunch that day and have special guests throughout the day, and different activities planned.  OR if a few scouts want to volunteer a few days, for example Scout A can volunteer Monday and Tuesday and Scout B can volunteer Wednesday and Thursday that would work too.  Send all emails to GuilfordCS.Daycamp@gmail.com
