Team Building Games
Hello Troop 11 Scouts & Families!
Last night the Rankin family graciously hosted our Troop at their home with a fire to keep us warm on the final day of February. We began the meeting with time for patrol advancement, and then used the rest of the meeting time to alternate stations that included plank walking, a spider web activity, and a tarp challenge.
On Sunday, our Life Rank scouts met to plan our March weekly meetings. We also created a sheet for patrol leaders to log and monitor scout rank advancements. We expect non-leadership scouts (Scout, Tenderfoot, & 2nd Class Rank) to get a requirement signed off at least once a month (more requirements are highly encouraged). We created this to make sure that everyone is progressing within the troop, as we want to make sure that every Scout can join leadership eventually and experience the other further ventures such as the Order of the Arrow that come with these achievements.
Thank you to everyone who has already volunteered or is signed up to help with our colonial maple syrup method station at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center maple syrup festival!

May 13 - 15: ConnJam - State-wide Scouting Jamboree in Orange, CT. Troop 11 builds and oversees a giant monkey rope bridge!
JUNE TRIP: Block Island, RI (This trip is a Scout favorite and has not happened since 2018 due to Covid, we camp on the beach and since space is limited it is important to participate within the troop to ensure a spot.)
Spring is approaching and Troop 11 is in full swing with the many trips ahead. Have a great week everyone!
