Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!!

Last reminder Backpacking Sign up closes Today Wednesday September 21

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 9:27am

Hello all - 


If you have not yet signed up for patrol-organized backpacking, and you would like to go, this is your LAST REMINDER to do so. Signup closes this Wednesday, September 21.   We will be finalizing locations based on how much adult supervision we have, so scouts should apply appropriate pressure to their parent/guardian so that we will have plenty of adult participation!

Just Quick Reminder

Posted on Sep 20 2016 - 9:23am

Just sending a quick reminder about all of the unique opportunities for each and every one of you to be involved with the troop. As our scouts learn to serve their community, it is very important for us to help them and serve as well.

Hello Troop 940,


In a little more than two weeks, we are going to be holding our Fall Backpacking Outing. It will be planned and led by each of the Patrols. However before we leave on September 30th, there is some business that the navigators need to do.
