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!!!! 

Troop 940 is chartered by St. John Parish of West Chester, and is in the Fort Hamilton District of the Dan Beard Council.  We meet on Thursday nights, 7:00pm to 8:30pm, at the St. John Center. Celebrating 35 years of Scouting.

Most High, good Lord,

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.

Weekly Prayer April 11, 2018

This weeks prayer 

God of the universe,
We thank You for Your many good gifts -
For the beauty of Creation and its rich and varied fruits,
For clean water and fresh air, for food and shelter, animals and plants.

Forgive us for the times we have taken the earth's resources
for granted
And wasted what You have given us.
Transform our hearts and minds
So that we would learn to care and share,
To touch the earth with gentleness and with love,
Respecting all living things.

We pray for all those who suffer as a result of our waste,
greed and indifference,
And we pray that the day would come when everyone has enough
food and clean water.
Help us to respect the rights of all people and all species 
And help us to willingly share your gifts
Today and always. Amen.

Camp Cards

Posted on Apr 11 2018 - 12:33pm

Troop 940 Parents- There are a handful of Scouts in our Troop that are selling Camp Cards this year.  A few of the Scouts and I will be setting up at the tables at the back of the gym over the next few weeks selling Camp Cards.  If you do not have a Scout selling Camp Cards this year, please consider purchasing one.  They are only $10 each of which the Scouts earn $5 for every card sold .  If you use them, you will get your money back easily from the savings on the cards.  Also, if anyone is still interested in selling them, please let me know.
