Summer Camp at Camp Cris Dobbins June 24th -July 2nd.

Posted by pharris on Nov 20 2022 - 9:28am
Troop 845 is pleased to offer a summer camp opportunity to Camp Cris Dobbins located in Elbert, CO, one hour northeast of Colorado Springs. 
Mrs. Fernandes and Mr. Campbell will be our adult leads for this summer camp.
The dates of our camp will be June 24th - July 2nd which includes two days of travel.  Camp Cris Dobbins offers our scouts numerous opportunities for merit badges.  Silver Lake allows for water activities such as small boat sailing, kayaking and canoeing.  Gates Aquatics Center provides swimming and lifesaving.  There is a shooting range and a horsemanship program.  Our Troop has long enjoyed traveling to Colorado to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while participating in the program at Camp Cris Dobbins.  Both scouts and adults can sign up on the troop website to receive more information about pricing and travel details.  We encourage our younger scouts to take advantage of this one-week camp in a mild climate.  We welcome all interested parents to join us on the adventure!
The troop is currently working on the budget / fee for this camp and we should have this posted soon. 
Scouts and scouters interested should sign up on the troop calendar.

December Troop Activity: Group Dynamix (12/10 6pm-11pm)

Posted by fsaenz on Nov 18 2022 - 4:52am

We have confirmed our reservation for Group Dynamix. We have a limited number of spots still available so sign up soon. Click here.

The PLC (Patrol Leaders Council) planned a Troop activity at Group Dynamix for December 10th (6PM-11PM). This is one of the scouts‘ favorite activities, unfortunately due to COVID and other difficulties we haven't been able to take the troop back for 2 years. We are going back again now!

The fee is $45.00 per Scout. Adult chaperones are free. 

Is Your YPT Current?

Posted by fsaenz on Nov 18 2022 - 3:29am

There are many adult leaders whose YPT is expired or is about to expire. The Troop needs all registered adults whose YPT expires before March 2023 to renew it before the meeting on Sunday, November 27th to be eligible for recharter.

Remember that YPT is the most basic of BSA trainings that all registered adults must complete.  YPT is necessary to maintain our Troop status and it's required for all adults that participate in Scouting activities.  Adults with missing or expired YPT are not allowed to attend campouts or any event involving Scouts.

You can take the course online at My.Scouting.org and should only take about an hour. Send your completed certificate to recharter@troop845.org.

Winter Camp registration is open on the troop website. Winter Camp is a Jamboree style camp at Trevor Reese Jones Camp near Athens Tx December 27-30.  Scouts will be able to take 3 merit badges and participate in other fun activities such as, wood pen turning, Mountain Man, Indian Lore, Polar Plunge, and tons of other scouting fun.
 All of our reserved spots are full, however we may be able to reserve more spots if they are available.  if you would like a spot for your scout, adults are welcome as well, please email Paul Harris pharris1958@yahoo.com and Devin Fernandes devinfernandes@hotmail.com 
The fee is $100.00 this includes all meals including lunch on our way to camp and dinner on our way home.  Please sign up and pay here.
We provide all of the food for the scouts and the adults do all of the cooking! :)
I have attached a list of the merit badges that are traditionally offered there is no guaranty that all of these will be offered this year. The "official" merit badge list opens on October 14th unfortunately so does the merit badge registration, classes fill up almost as quick as they open. In order to have the best chance to get the merit badge class that your scout wants to attend I will need his choices by October 12th.  Please review the list and send me your scouts top 10 choices. 
Some merit badges have minimal ($10.00- $15.00) additional fees: Basket weaving, Shooting , Shotgun etc. We will advise you of these additional charges after I confirm your scouts choices.
