CPR class opportunity, Beaumont Camping/Tubing permission slip, summer camp update

Troop 216,

Please see below for information on free CPR classes being offered for the
rest of the month.

Aslo, we will be making a decision on summer camp soon. Probably will be
the 27 FEB or 6 MAR troop meeting. Quite a bit of information has been set
out about the potential of attending an out of council camp up in
Michigan. There also was a presentation/discussion at the 23 JAN troop
meeting. Please talk to your scouts about summer camp. I fielded some
questions back in January during the presentation, but that was it. We
want to make sure we’ve alleviated any concerns about our summer camp
options. We’ve got alot on the books this summer with Philmont back in the
mix. We understand that with summer school, sports/band camps, and family
vacations, schedules don’t always line up. If your scout can’t make one of
the troops scheduled camps, there is another option at S Bar F the last
week of July. It’s a trades/stem/merit badge camp for one week and does
not require troop participation. An individual scout can attend without a
parent for the entire week. Details to follow on this event.

Please let me know if you have any more questions on Camp Owasippe in
Michigan. Looking forward to the campout this weekend. Hope to see you at
the next scout meeting.

Mike OKoniewski

Also, find attached the permission slip for our next troop activity,

The boys were interested in rock climbing, I spoke with the manager at
Upper Limits Climbing in Maryland Hts. We are looking at reserving a 3-4
hour block on Sunday March 5th likely late morning to mid afternoon.
Details to come. Depending on the number of attendees, cost is $40-45.
Scouts will be able to earn the climbing merit badge at this activity.

Additional activities (mark you calendars):

We may have additional activities upcoming although likely only daytime
events rather than full weekend camping trips.

As always, we love (and need) parental involvement with activities. Please
let me know if you’d like to attend any of these upcoming events.

Thank you,
Christin Rigoni
