Camp Rank Advancement

Posted on

Attention Scouters young and old!

Throughout April 13-15, our troop will be providing one of the greatest opportunities for new scouts to earn the rank of Tenderfoot!

Throughout this camp out we will incorporate almost every requirement for the rank in a fun and interactive way.

All new scouts that attend are highly highly recommended to bring their parents along so that we can get the lay of the land and all get to know each other!

We also need a few older scouts to assist with teaching the requirements.

All are welcome! I hope to see you there and assist you all on your scouting journey.

If there are any questions or comments, please contact me at ezekiel.kz2002@gmail.com, or call or text me at 720-320-7198
Thanks,
Ezekiel Kuntz, SPL in charge

Aviation Merit Badge

Image Posted on Updated on

From: Mr. Vogel

Aviation merit badge class at Wings Over the  Rockies Air and  Space Museum is open for registrations. 

It’s called the”penguin class” because you don’t have to fly to earn the badge in one day.

The 10 a.m.-3 p.m. class is availableMarch 10th. 

The class will cover how aircraft and engines work, some history and careers. You will tour our nationally famous museum, fly the FPG-9 glider, chart a course between airfields and fly it on the simulators. You certainly don’t want to miss the X-wing fighter and pod racer, on loan from  Star Wars director George Lucas.

The museum’s $15 admission also has a bonus for scouts: the course is free with your admission.

To sign up, go to the Wings website and click on the education tab for registration instructions and course prerequisites.

Parents who want to sit in on class may do so, space permitting, but DO NOT REGISTER for the class.

Please consider car pooling to this event. The troop is not organizing transportation for the scouts.

Mystery tour hint…

We’re heading east for this adventure,
For an extreme side quencher.
Pack your bags lightly,
As we’ll stay up all nightly,
Then off to the great north,
To bring a different adventure forth.
A merit badge workbook,
Fun it will be, maybe with a hook!
