Here are a few summer camp updates -
If finances are an issue, scholarships are available through the troop. Please contact Mr. Raddant directly at email@example.com to get more information.
Please contact Mr. Nance (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mr. Nyka (email@example.com) with questions.
Attention parents - please complete your email and phone number emergency contact information within Scoutbook as soon as possible.

2023 National JamboreeJuly 2023
Summit Bechtel Reserve
We will take a group of Scouts to visit the National Jamboree for one day, either Friday July 21st or Saturday July 22. We will have a discussion with those interested in attending to determine whether a Friday visit will be possible.
This event is open to all Scouts in Troop 171. Older Scouts will have opportunities to venture through to activities in the buddy system, younger Scouts will have an itinerary to follow with Scoutmaster Moore as a group.
Please sign up using the link below if you are interested in going. There will be a mandatory meeting on March 27 to go over the details.
Intro to Backpacking TripMay 05-07
We are planning an introduction to backpacking trip on May 5-7. The location is still being worked out, but will likely be Kings Mountain.
This backpacking trip will be geared toward new scouts as a first time backpacking adventure. Older, more experienced scouts are welcome, and HIGHLY encouraged to come along to help guide the new guys.
All scouts on this trip will be expected to carry everything they will need for the entire weekend - tent, sleeping bag, food, etc.
There will be a gear check meeting before this outing. All first-timers will be expected to attend this meeting with their packs fully loaded so we can make sure the weight is correct, and that everything that will be needed in included.
Please sign up for this trip using the Scoutbook link below.
