Summer camp 2015 - Get your suggestions in!!!

Posted on Apr 22 2014 - 11:35am

We are deciding what summer camp to attend to in the summer of 2015.  I know it's early, but we want to decide soon so we can get an earlier week to go next year.  I would like any input you have on where to go.  If you don't know where to go, there is an app on the app store called "Camp Scout," for those who have smart phones.  It's free.  It will ask what activities you want to look for, pick "any" at the top of the page.  Scroll down and search for your top 5 choices within 300 miles from here.  E-mail me your top 5 before April 28 and I will put together the top 5 choices I have received from your decisions.  Make sure you read about what the camp has to offer not just that it is the closest camp to home.  We went to a camp in Pennsylvania last year.

Goose Creek District April News

Posted on Apr 1 2014 - 9:29pm

Attached is the April 2014 Goose Creek District BSA newsletter.

Please pass the newsletter around to other members of your unit. We would like to expand the newsletter with more on what our units are doing, so if your pack/troop/crew has had a special trip, event, ceremony, or open house let us know about it by sending the information to GCProgram@verizon.net

NOTE: We would like to get a parent volunteer to work with our Troop Historian to write up a brief summary of an event we hold and then submit it for possible publication. 

IF you want to directly receive this newsletter, send an email to Communications@GooseCreekDistrict.org and ask to be added to the Boy Scout email group.
