Troop 108 will be spending a week at Camp Bob Hardin for our summer camp adventure in 2018. We will leave on June 24th and return on June 30th, 2018. Costs should be in the $300 range (including the traditional Troop 108 summer camp t-shirt).
More information as well as signups for merit badges will be coming along in the upcoming months, but we did want to give everyone a heads-up and also provide a way for parents to start making summer camp payments if they wish, by using the button in the right sidebar of this page.
What: Popcorn Show and Sell events where we sell to those coming to eat.
Why: To help our scouts to earn money for Summer Camp in 2018 or their 2018 Northern Tier Experience. Scouts can also complete requirements for their salesman merit badge.

With school in FMSD cancelled today due to weather concerns, we will follow our own “No School, No Scouts” rule.
Please stay home and stay safe. We will see you all next Monday night.
Due to weather concerns, the York District Activities Team as decided to postpone the planned Beach Sweep Event for this coming weekend. It may be planned for another weekend at a later time.
With 35 consecutive years of service to the beach community (along with lots of fun) they hated to not continue this year, but the main concern is for the safety of our scouting families.
This also keeps us out of the way of those who call the coastal areas home as they prepare their properties to weather the impending storm.
We will decided late in the weekend, depending upon weather conditions, whether we will be having a troop meeting on Monday night.
Those who have signed up to attend Beach Sweep need to know the following:
We will be meeting at Unity Presbyterian Church this Friday at 4:30PM and leaving out by 5PM.
Scouts should pack light (be sure to bring swimming trunks and a towel in addition to normal camping items).
Scouts need to set aside money for a fast food dinner on the way down and money for a fast food breakfast Sunday morning on the way home. Scouts can also bring money for the snack bar and arcade located in the campground.
We are sending a crack team of adults with years of tent-pitching experience to set up camp for us so our tents will be setup and ready for us when we arrive in the dark.
Hurricane Irma doesn’t appear to be a factor in our event this year except for possibly some rain on the way home. We will certainly keep an eye out on the storm this week and will adjust our plans accordingly.
The annual Beach Sweep event is right around the corner and for many it is “the best campout of the year”. Could this be because it is so laid-back and relaxed, we eat out almost all weekend, we have putt-putt, paddle-boats, arcades, ice cream bar, snack bar, pool, water park and so much more? Maybe….
Scouts will need to bring money for a fast food supper on the way down and quick breakfast on the way back and any pocket money for the aforementioned arcades and snack bars. Breakfast on Saturday will be at what used to be Springmaid Beach and following breakfast we will clean the beach at that location before returning to the campground. The boys will then essentially have free time until about 4:30 or 5pm to enjoy all that the campground has to offer. We will have the makings for sandwiches along with drinks and chips available for the scouts to swing by camp and make their lunch during the day. We will then head out to a Golden Corral style buffet for supper. Saturday’s supper is sometimes followed by more activities like watching college football, watching a movie and more putt-putt and such.
Cost for the trip is $65.00.
