  • Welcome

    Thank you for visiting our web site! We hope you find what you’re looking for. Troop 168, at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church has been raising up leaders through Scouting since 1964. Hundreds of boys have come through our Troop and MANY went on to receive their Eagle and become upstanding leaders in our community. We teach the Scouting Values through our many activities and outtings. Lord Baden Powell called it, “Fun with a Purpose”.

    We invite you to visit our Troop Meetings on Monday nights at 7:30 p.m. (Except for the Monday following a camp out). By visiting our Troop Meeting, you’ll meet our leaders and see us in action as we plan camping events and service projects. Better yet, you should join us on a camp out! Please contact our Scoutmaster, Mr. Bryant, or our Committee Chairman, Mr. Cranford, if you have any questions.

    Summer Camp 2015

    kerr
    We will be returning to Kerr Scout Ranch at Slippery Falls for summer camp this year for the first time since 2012. Dates are June 7-13th.
    Cost for summer camp this year:
    • Scouts: $275
    • Adults: $175
    A deposit of $100 per camper is due by Feb. 27th to reserve your spot. If we have our deposits paid by March 1st, we can begin signing up for merit badge classes then – which should help ensure that everyone gets the class they want.
    The rest of the summer camp fee is due by May 1st.
    You can plan to sign up and make your payments during the troop meetings on Feb. 16th and Feb. 23rd. As always, you can use your Scout Account to cover summer camp fees if you like.

     

    Christmas Party

    christmasparty1

     

    Monday night, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. is our annual Troop Christmas Party.

     Food

    The Troop will purchase pizza for dinner, and we would like for parents to bring a variety of goodies. That could be cookies, brownies, fudge or whatever you are famous for. Please reply back and let us know what you will bring.

    Gift Exchange

    The Scouts will play “Dirty Santa,” so everyone should bring a $10 gift sealed up in a gift bag. Adults can play too, as long as you bring a gift. Please note that “Dirty Santa” gifts are not the same as “white elephant” gifts. In other words, no gag gifts. It should be Scouting-appropriate, but beyond that, the sky (and $10) is the limit.

    What to wear

    Uniform for the evening is Class B (Troop t-shirt or sweatshirt, Scout shorts, belt, socks). There will be a Christmas sweater contest, to be judged by the senior leadership Scouts. If you dress for the contest, you can forego the Class B. If you are not participating in the contest, then it’s Class B for you.

    What time?

    We will start at 7 p.m. Please note that that is different than our normal meeting time of 7:30 p.m. You can come at 7:30, but all the pizza will probably be gone.

    What else?

    Be prepared to have fun!
