Campout in August

Ivan and I just started planning on taking the troop camping. It will be the weekend of August 20-21.

We would leave friday night, campout, then break down camp saturday morning so we could make it to the swimming instructions that Brother Taylor offered to give us at UH. After that we'll come home.

Given the time constraints we were thinking about Galveston state park or somewhere close by.

Any recommendations would be welcomed. Just leave them in the comments or email either Ivan or myself.

I'll post a list of equipment that each boy should bring.

More details are forthcoming.....

Activity Ideas

I just added the list of activity ideas that the boys came up with several months ago.

I haven't checked into it yet, but I would like to add a message board of some kind to the blog so everyone can add comments or suggestions to it.

First Blog

This is the first blog post of the Clear Lake 2nd Ward Scouts.

I am Tom Booth, the 11 year old scout leader, and i decided to start this blog in order to provide the parents with an easy to access website to view the calendar of what we will be doing while their boy are in our troop. This blog will be accessible by only the parents of the boys and the bishopric for security purposes.

My plans are to first create the calendar to organize what we will be doing every Wednesday night. This will also include the 3 campouts a year that we will be setting up. I would also post the ward Primary activities that involve the boys so we can see any conflicts.

Next I'll create a message board or comment section for ideas for scout activities or to better plan campout dates.

I would also like to make posts of the campouts or activities that we went on so the parents can see the fun that their boys are having.

I might even add a wiki that shows scouting basic skill (i.e. knot tying, first aid, etc.).

We'll see how this goes. It may be a total flop and nobody uses it or it may come in handy. Either way i'll give it shot and see how it goes.
