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.

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.
