During our Troop 160 meeting, we will have a presentation on the dangers of using drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
Scouts & their Families are welcome (siblings age 11 & older)
This event will count toward Second Class Rank Requirement 7.c: Participate in a school, community, or troop program on the dangers of using drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, and other practices that could be harmful to your health.
A Scout is Trustworthy: Please return old merit badge pamphlets to the troop library.
Bring them to the meeting this Thursday. Other Scouts are in need of these materials.
A Scout is Helpful: If you have merit badge books that you own, consider giving them to the Troop. Other Scouts will benefit from your generosity.
Here is a useful link to merit badge and rank worksheets:
The worksheets are optional tools that can help Scouts organize notes, listen actively, and document their work.
We really need your help to make this a success.
We will setup on Thursday night during the meeting at the CSUMC. (Class B Uniform)

You are invited to attend a special one day training course developed right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania for Boy Scout & Venturing Youth Leaders. The course is designed to provide Scouts (and adult leaders) with a more in-depth training experience than their Troop/Crew training by providing supplemental leadership skill sessions. Youth and Adult leaders may attend.
There is no rank requirement. All Scouts are welcome. Speak with the Scoutmaster and get his signature.
Registration Fee: $30.00 if registered and paid prior to October 28th. ($35.00 after Oct 28th)
Join us for Harvest Fest at Camp Acahela this weekend. We are staffing the Dutch oven station and really need additional volunteers on Saturday from 11-6 and Sunday from 10-5.
Our Scoutmaster, Mr. D’Elia will procure all of the ingredients for the following recipies:
· Cinnamon/raisin rolls
· Apple Cobbler
· Chicken and dumplings
We are stationed at the Twins cabins. If you would like to camp overnight – you can do so in the cabins. Please show your scout spirit and respond to the Scoutmaster, Mr. D’Elia via email as soon as possible if you are able to help out. If you know nothing about Dutch oven cooking – that’s perfect, you will be an expert by the end of the day. You can come one or both days, just let us know. Your help will lead to the success of the event! If you have not been camping yet this year – we need to see you there, NO MATTER YOUR RANK!
