Welcome to Troop 356</pre>




This years "Big Trip" will take place on June 16, 17 and 18.  We realize this is Father's Day weekend, but to accommodate the school schedule of SAT's and ACT's this was the best weekend.  Scouts and leaders will travel down via 12-passenger vans, visit museums, enjoy a buffet dinner and come home having made great memories.  Final cost per scout will be announced shortly.

All payments for summer camp at Resica Falls Scout Reservation should already be received.  Merit badge choices should be sent to Mrs. Nicoletto ASAP!  Workshops are filling up!!  They are offered, first come, first serve.  


Congratulations to Anthony J. for earning the rank of Eagle Scout.  Many thanks to friends, family, leaders, committee members and scouts for attending and supporting Anthony not only at the ceremony but throughout his scouting career.  We're very proud of you Anthony!!
