Bike Hike/Campout

ScoutTentThis is going to be a GREAT event!!!

October 17th and 18th – We’ll bike hike from the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church to Mr. Tom Tone’s property in Falls – about 7.5 easy miles.  All gear will be trucked to the site.

Then expect a terrific weekend of fun!!  Patrols are doing their own planning and cooking, so contact your Patrol Leader to let him know you want to be a part of the action.  The only cost for this event is whatever your patrol needs to spend on food!

Remember that this counts towards your Camping Merit Badge requirements.

Sign ups for this campout are only by speaking to your Patrol Leader.

Pickup at the church on Sunday is 10-10:30.



Talent Release Form

As we begin a new year at Troop 160 we request that parents complete a Talent Release form.  Pictures at Scout events are often posted to our website or published in the newspaper.  Parent’s are asked to sign a Talent Release form indicating your approval.  This only needs to be done once for each Scout.  If you haven’t completed a release form previously, please print and complete the following form including your signature and your son’s signature, and hand in to Mr. Davis at a Troop Meeting.

You may also complete the form, scan it and email it to

They began the trip on Long Lake to the first campsite, and by the time they arrived the sun was beginning to go down behind the mountains so they had to set up their tents and hang the bear bags quickly.
