Packing for Lake Jocassee

Posted on Jun 20 2019 - 10:02pm

The Scout motto is "Be Prepared", so we will be packing our canoes in the expectation that something like the photo below may happen. You don't need to pack in a backpack unless thats the most convenient bag you have. Do not buy an expensive dry bag just for this trip. A duffel bag that can slide inside of a trash bag (to waterproof it) is actually ideal. Anything that cannot get wet should be inside of its own waterproof (ziploc) bag.

No-cook or "stoveless" cooking ideas for backpacking this weekend

Posted on May 30 2019 - 10:28pm

Stoveless meals for backpacking dont have to be just clif bars or granola bars. Be sure your meals are a mix of protein, carbohydrates and fruits/vegetables.

Super Saturday Training - October 19th, 2019

Trained leaders are critical to the success of Scouting. Every young person involved in the Scouting program needs and deserves a leader who understands the aims of the program and knows how to deliver it with enthusiasm and fun. Trained leaders are more effective at delivering the promise of Scouting because they understand their role, responsibilities, and the resources available to them. To achieve that responsibility Button-Gwinnett will be hosting in-person position specific training for Cubmaster, Den Leader, Pack Committee, Scoutmaster, Troop Committee, and Merit Badge Counselor. Each class limited to 40 people. If register by 9/1 no cost, $5 registration after 9/1 per class. There are two registration links below, one for each program. If there are any questions please contact our new District Training Chair, Devin Mills at 321-431-0864 or mills.devin@hotmail.com
