Goshen "HomeCamping" Summer Sessions

Posted by zringel on Jun 16 2020 - 9:35am

Goshen Scout Reservation is offering four one-week sessions during July that include the New Scout program and merit badge programs.  Registration is $125/week, and includes a family camp weekend.  For the New Scout program, Scouts will learn a variety of Target First Class skills, but MUST demonstrate these skills to a Troop 129 leader afterwards in order to receive credit.  For Scouts registering for merit badges, please note that some badges cannot be competed in full during HomeCamping; local T129 counselors can be assigned afterwards. Parents: Upon registering your Scout, please notify both Mr Gutierrez, Scoutmaster, and Mrs Biesada, Advancement Chair, so appropriate follow-up can occur.  https://www.gotogoshen.org/camps-programs/scouts-bsa/#downloads

Court of Honor Presentation

Posted by zringel on Jun 9 2020 - 7:15pm

We will be holding our Court of Honor on June 23 virtually through zoom. For this to happen, we will be creating a slideshow to recognize all the scouts who have completed merit badges, rank advancements, and other achievements during the last few months. For this slideshow, we are requesting an image of each scout in uniform who will be receiving an award so we can add it to the presentation. Below will be the list of scouts earning awards, along with the email to send the pictures to.

Online MB Registrations - Don't Forget!

Posted by zringel on Jun 3 2020 - 9:59pm

Scouts & Parents:  Thank you for following our established procedures and requesting permission from the Scoutmaster to work on merit badges online.  Please just don't forget to send your registration confirmation information for the badge(s) once you've signed up, so we can ensure you are working with a rostered merit badge counselor. To assist Mr Gutierrez in these efforts, the registration confirmations should be sent to Mrs Biesada, Advancement Chair. And if you'd like to work on a merit badge that isn't being offered online, the troop has counselors ready and willing to work with you at your own pace.  Scouts can fill out a blue card with their information and the desired badge -- blue cards are in the cooler at Mr Gutierrez's home.

Virtual Art-O-Ree For Art Merit Badge

Posted by zringel on May 23 2020 - 10:29pm

Imagine getting free art lessons from the most accomplished illustrators from around the country. Maybe you want to ask them questions about their techniques. Maybe you’re looking for tips for your next art project. Maybe you’re bored and just want to draw along with the pros. And maybe you’re even looking to jumpstart the Art merit badge. May 25-29,  we’re making all that happen. Each day at 3 p.m. EAST Coast time, hop onto go.boyslife.org/fblive for live-drawing demonstrations and Q&As with the incredible illustrators of Boys’ Life magazine. Every lesson will cover different art media and how to render awesome art using a variety of tools. Kids of all ages are invited to join. Even Cub Scouts who aren’t yet earning merit badges can benefit from tuning in. Come prepared to draw along with the pros. Or just watch to get inspired for your own drawings. Some days you’ll probably have everything you need to follow along. Other tutorials require specific tools you can order ahead of time.
