In Honor of the 100 Years of Scouting…

Cameron S. is trying to collect 100 new/unused receiving blankets to present to Desert Regional Medical Center’s N.I.C.U. (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and Maternity Wards by February, in honor of the 100 year anniversary of Scouting. No, this is not part of an Eagle Project, this is a good deed in keeping with the Boy Scout Slogan, “Do a good turn daily.”
Any donations would be greatly appreciated by Cameron S. so that he can succeed in this worthy endeavor.

If you are interested in helping and are a member of Troop 262, please call Cameron at his phone number on the phone list.

If you are not a member of Troop 262 and would like to do a good deed by making a donation, please email Christina McCulloch, Assistant Scoutmaster at: I will make sure your email is forwarded promptly.

No Scout Meeting: Wednesday, November 25

There will be no Scout meeting on Wednesday, November 25 since so many will be traveling to be with family or friends for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Have a safe holiday and Happy Thanksgiving!

Camp Emerson 2010 for New Scouts

Camp Emerson is strongly recommended for the new Boy Scouts (those that have just crossed over from Weblos II). Here is the link to the Camp Emerson website:

Camp Emerson offers a wonderful transition program for new Boy Scouts which exposes them to a variety of Scout skills. Included in the transition program are the Swimming and First-Aid merit badges, which are the ones I always recommend new Scouts get their first year in summer camp. The ranks Tenderfoot through First- Class (see the Boy Scout Handbook) have both swimming and first-aid requirements and having these badges helps them advance in rank.

Troop 262 will be attending Camp Emerson for Week 3. The dates will be Sunday, July 11 through Saturday, July 17, 2010.

The cost for Camp Emerson is $290 per Scout plus a $20 material fee for the Transition Camp program. All Scouts attending summer camp must have a physical using the [Boy Scout medical form]( Three of the doctor dads from Troop 262 will be conducting a basic physical as a courtesy for Troop 262’s Scouts in January/February of 2010. (If your Scout has any health issues, you will need to take him to your regular doctor).

The cost for adults is $150 for the week per adult leader. Adult leaders are requested to register with Troop 262 and are required to complete the online [Youth Protection class]( if they have not already done so for Cub Scouts. Note: Youth Protection training must be renewed every two years. Adult leaders are also required to submit a medical form.

Deposits for Camp Emerson are due as follows:

– Deposit of $100 due on or before Wednesday, January 19, 2010
– Second Payment of $100 due on or before Wednesday, March 3, 2010
– Final Payment of $90 due on or before Wednesday, April 20, 2010.

You will note from this website that contingencies from Troop 262 will be attending several different camps, including Emerald Bay on Catalina Island and Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. These camps are not recommended for the first-year Boy Scouts because there are either age/rank requirements, prerequisite merit badge requirements, or the activities require a higher level of physical development in order to have a successful and enjoyable program.
