Follow Up on Summer Camp Parent Meeting - June 25

Posted on Jun 25 2020 - 7:46pm

Thank you, everyone, who was able to attend tonight’s Parent Meeting regarding COVID and Summer Camp.  I appreciate everyone sharing their thoughts and concerns on how best to proceed with this event.  Even where we may fall on different sides of the go/no-go line, we are all trying to navigate a complex, uncertain set of concerns for our children and our families.

June 25 - Parent Meeting for Summer Camp

Posted on Jun 21 2020 - 10:34am

Parents with Scouts planning to join us at Summer Camp the week of July 5th, we'd like to have a discussion about the COVID numbers here in the state of Texas and make a final decision about Summer Camp prior to entering into a critical financial window. I apologize for having to revisit the Summer Camp conversation, but we recognize that conditions here in Texas are dynamic and that all of us are trying to determine what's best course of action for our children.

Eagle Project Car Wash

Posted on Jun 11 2020 - 7:38pm

     On June 17, Garrett Watson will be hosting his Eagle Scout carwash in order to raise money for his eagle project.  The fundraiser will run from 5pm-8pm at the 7 Eleven in Coppell (100 W Sandy Lake Rd, Coppell, TX 75019).  He needs scouts to come and volunteer, as many as possible, in order to raise enough money for his project.  Scouts will receive service hours for the time they spend working and this is a great opportunity for young and first-year scouts to get their service hours necessary for their First Class.  Older scouts are also needed to act in leadership roles.
