Wapping Fair Clean Up (Part One) (September 8th 5:30 to 8:30)

 

Once again Troop 880 has been asked by the Wapping Fair to help with the breakdown of the Wapping FairOur troop volunteered in this capacity last year and it was a big success with a really great turnout from our troop!  The Wapping Fair Committee said we were the angels in the night because we had done such a great job in a short period of time.  The responsibilities will include:

  • Taking down the banners.

  • Taking down the chairs and tables in the food tent.

  • Taking down the fencing.

  • Grounds clean up.

  • Other assorted duties.

  • Please bring gloves.

Based on the number of volunteers and hours we give them they will be making a donation to our troop.  If any parents (who are not leaders) would like to help out along with the scouts, that would be greatly appreciated as well! Many hands make light work.  We gave the Wapping Fair a tentative commitment of 25 volunteers!

Deer Lake Backpacking Trip

(April 12th -  - April 14th)

Troop 880 will be camping at Deer Lake Scout Reservation in Killingworth CT.  We have the DaRos Cabin and we have the outpost site. The Daros cabin is large cabin which sleeps up to 36 people. The outpost is an area on the scout reservation that is hiked into with your gear. We plan to camp at the Cabin Friday night. Saturday the older scouts who would like to backpack to the outpost and spend Saturday evening up there will be able to do that. We plan on doing a hike around the grounds Saturday and work on any and all advancement we can this weekend. This trip will be patrol cooking. This means the Scouts will be responsible for all their own meals. This is very nice place to hike and camp and another great opportunity to get rank advancement and improve on your skills.

 

The cost of the trip is 20 dollars.  We will be leaving the church Friday at 5:30pm and returning about 10:00am Sunday morning. Any questions please email Mr. Maneeley.
