Summer Trip 2008

Trip Information
One of the benefits of Scouting is the ability to learn new skills and explore the world. The French and Indian War was the North American chapter of the Seven Years' War, spanning a total of nine years. The name does not refer to the two battling sides, but rather to the two main enemies of the British: the royal French forces and the various American Indian forces. The conflict, the fourth such colonial war between the kingdoms of France and Great Britain, resulted in the British conquest of all of New France east of the Mississippi River, as well as Spanish Florida. The outcome was one of the most significant developments in the persistent Anglo-French Second Hundred Years' War. To compensate its ally, Spain, for its loss of Florida, France ceded its control of French Louisiana west of the Mississippi. France's colonial presence north of the Caribbean was reduced to the tiny islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.

Being a Scout troop, this trip is different from a standard vacation trip.

The cost of this trip is around $200 per person. This includes travel, accommodations, and food and entry fees. There will be an initial deposit required for this trip due in the beginning of 2008 which reserves space on the trip. Our goal is to enlist your aid in finding those bargains and other opportunities to help defray the cost.

Initially we need to determine who is interested in going on this trip. Attendance for this trip will be extended to registered members of the Boy Scouts and Troop 22. Adults may participate and a minimum number will be required to attend for safety reasons.

For those Cubs and Webelos who are currently in Pack 22 and are considering crossing into Boy Scouts, this trip is an option. We will work with those scouts and their families wishing to participate and include them into all fund-raising opportunities to help defray the cost of the trip.

For all those participating in the fund-raising activities, the money raised will be split between all those involved in the activity. If participants change their minds and withdraw from the trip, their funds will be spread among the rest of the group. There is no refund or reassignment of funds raised by the troop to other purposes.

What activities are you willing to help with to raise the funds? We are planning on some now and hope you can come up with more ideas to help us on our way.

  • Fund-raising sales
  • Bake Sales
  • Yard Sales
  • Candy sales
  • Corporate Grants
  • Civic & Social Organization Grants

We are looking for lots of help. Please call Mr. Warner with any questions. We will have monthly updates at the Troop Committee meetings on this trip.
