Summer Camp Coming Up!
Summer Camp this year has been decided to come back down to Powhatan in the Bllue Ridge Mountains. There will need to be two adults to attend this camp. We are going to be thin this year as we have a contingent going to Philmont (-3 adults), Mr. Price is headed to Pamlico Seabase (-2) and Claytor Lake/Powhatan (-2) are needed. Payments start in December with $100 deposits due by December 5th.
Welcome to Troop 444
Troop 444 has been serving the youth in the Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs, Apex and Angier for nearly 10 years. As a ministry of the St. Bernadette Catholic Church, we meet every Monday evening at 7:00 pm in the Social Hall of the church building. We have 25-35 Scouts and 10-15 Leaders registered with the BSA, and can always use more; the more the merrier.
Scouts run the program; Lord Baden-Powell – the founder of scouting in 1910 – developed the Patrol Method. This allows the Scouts to lead the troop as they see fit. Adults take on the role of advisers, and safety monitors. The Senior Patrol Leader is truly in charge of the troop, and he has his leadership Team, the Patrol Leaders Council, to ensure what he decides as an activity is what a majority of the members of the troop want to do. Scouts, each and every one of them, have a say in what the troop does, and does not do.
