The sale of wreaths and christmas trees is how we fund the things we do and everything in between.
Be safe when selling this year. I suggest emailing or calling friends and family to see if they would like to purchase from you this year.
Whatever you do...be safe first and do your best.
You can download a copy of the wreath sales sheet that has the prices and all of the details you need to know at the button below.

Devils Lake Family Campout!
Please consider joining us for our annual Devil's Lake Family Campout this year!

Saturday night fun will include a big campfire and lots of hot cocoa. We will hike as a group and will provide hiking snacks, water (scouts carry their own), a first aid kit, and two-way radios.

Online Merit Badge Opportunities from National Council
Work on merit badges from the comfort of your home! In an effort to help support Scouts and families as our communities are practicing social distancing, National Capital Area Council will be offering Merit Badge programs ONLINE!
These programs make a great supplement to ongoing online schooling efforts. They also help Troops, Crews, and Ships continue their program while avoiding in-person activities. For all badges, Scouts are encouraged to earn (or renew) their Cyber Chip ahead of time.
These sessions are open to ALL Scouts in ALL Councils, nationwide!
All Scouts. Please complete BSA Cyber Chip.
We remind all scout and parents of the importance for all scout to be safe when online whether interacting with people online whether it is a class, merit badge or just communicating with others. Please download and complete the cyber chip workbook with your parents. Email your completed pdf workbooks to Couselor@troop61.com. Use "Cyber Chip for (Scouts Name)" in the subject line when you email the completed workbook.

The cost of annual BSA registration for next year is increasing due to new costs at the national level. We will supply details in the next eBuggle. To help offset this expected cost increase the Troop committee voted to provide an Event Scholarship of $20 per scout to be applied, $10 per event, to any outing or campout held next year starting with Winter Camp. Again, more details coming next week.
