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!!!!

This is your last opportunity to sign up for our May 4-6 caving outing.  Registration closes this Wednesday April 26.  Let's get those numbers up so we can get a solid four groups filled out!  For our new families, we encourage parent participation on outings, and this is a great one for you to try something new with your son.

Flags Over West Chester - Sign up and Route Maintenance

Hello Existing and New Parents and Scouts,

We are quickly approaching summer even though the weather doesn’t seem like it.  With our first flag posting being Memorial Day, we have some maintenance coming up in the next couple of weeks.

Summer camp t-shirts

Posted on Apr 23 2018 - 9:49pm

Hello scouts,

In my recent summer camp update email, I failed to mention that summer camp t-shirts are available for purchase from Mr. Biehle - $45 for a set of 5 shirts. Those along with the red shirt your received with registration make up our uniform for the week of camp (expect for when you are wearing your ACTUAL uniform for travel and flags each day, of course). This is another one of those one-time purchases that will last through the years of scouting...as long as you don't grow too, too much!

Summer camp final fees and payment status

Posted on Apr 17 2018 - 11:24pm

Greetings scout families, Final summer camp payments to the troop are due in a few weeks on May 10th! After evaluating the number of scouts and adults attending and our transportation costs, we have had to increase the summer camp fees by $5/scout. Cost for base camp Ottari and BSI (new) scouts is now $475. Cost for New River and Mountain Man scouts is $485. Costs for adults at Ottari/BSI are still $200. Attached shows the payment status of each person signed up for camp. PLEASE LOOK AT THIS. The table also shows a few key items that are needed for each person including: school grade next fall 2018, merit badge form completed, ABC medical form turned in, vaccination list turned in, insurnace card turned in. If you do not see a "Y" or "NA" for these items, they are still outstanding. Also note, I found out that I have to list each scouts school grade next fall 2018 on our registration so please contact me ONLY IF I have guessed wrong.
