2014-2015 Troop 648 Planned Outings and Monthly Themes

I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since our August PLC!  I wanted to give you a quick listing of the planned outings and monthly themes that the PLC put together.  A lot of hard work went into planning these activities and the boys are to be congratulated.  Please note that outing locations and dates are subject to change. Also, while we have quite a few backpack outings this year, we will offer base camping for many of the same locations giving the Scouts an option for the weekend.

I have listed the Monthly Meeting theme next to each month and the outing is listed under the month.  If your son was not at the PLC in August, please review this exciting calendar with him. For the monthly themes, each meeting is planned by a scout using BSA designed meeting activities as a guideline.
