  • is like summer camp without mosquitos!  
  • offers lots of opportunities that you just don't get on a weekend campout  
  • provides lots of merit badge choices 
  • enables extra time to work on advancement 
  • more time to make new friends within the troop
  • the adults cook all of the food 
  • not to mention - the great food and food to/from is included in the price ... pizza on the way and gourmet burgers on the way back!  Yum!!!
Costs: $120.00 some merit badges and other activities may have additional charges usually $5.00 to $10.00. 
 
So, don't delay - register and send Mr. Harris your top 6 merit badge choices immediately so we can be certain to secure our top choices. Please see the attached document for merit badge choices and additional information. 
 
We need more adult leaders as well, if you have time please come out. The time you spend in the outdoors with your scout is one of the best Christmas gifts you can give.

Catholic Religious Emblem (Ad Altare Dei) Classes

We will offer classes to earn the Catholic Religious Emblem (Ad Altare Dei). This course is open to any Catholic scout who is at least 13 years old and at least in 8th grade. The focus of this program is on the sacraments. There are 7 lessons which will be covered in 7 sessions.  Scouts will need to obtain a copy of the Ad Altare Dei workbook to use in class. The workbook can be obtained in hard format from the Scout Shop; or electronic format (pdf) from The National Catholic Committee on Scouting.

Class will try to meet in person, weekly on Sundays at 4pm at Coppell Bible Fellowship church prior to our regular meetings. We will not always be able to meet in person due to conflicts and holidays. On those weeks we will meet via Zoom. Due to personal conflicts, our first meeting will be on Zoom on Tuesday, Nov. 16th at 7pm. Register here and you will be sent the Zoom link. Feel free to email the instructor - Devin Fernandes - with any questions.
