Oh Yea!...  Troop 337 is embarking on a 4 day, fun filled campout including a Fishing Charter, Snorkel Charter, Indian Key Dour, Feeding Tarpons, Night Fishing, Canoeing, Camping, and more!

This is a different kind of campout for us, as we'll be doing a mixture of Troop and Patrol meals, and will be doing a lot of away-from-camp activities.   

Please carefully plan, and immerse yourself in the information below.  This will make your trip an AWESOME one!




TO ATTEND THIS CAMPOUT SCOUTS (NOT PARENTS) MUST DO THE FOLLOWING 4 STEPS:
  1. SNORKEL BSA TRAINING - All Scouts must attend and earn the Snorkel BSA Award.  To do this you must attend the our scheduled training.  If you can't make it to the training, you MUST coordinate with the Scoutmaster.  CLICK HERE to go to the information on it.
  2. INFORMATION SHEET  - Print it, READ IT, and put it in your Troop notebook  Use it to prepare/packfor the trip.   Click to view, and then hover near the bottom to save/print OR to download go to the bottom of this page and click the down arrow beside the sheet.
  3. PARENT PERMISSION FORM - Print it, have your parents sign it, and bring it to the Troop Meeting with payment on March 17th.
  4. CAMPOUT AGENDA - Print this, and BRING IT WITH YOU, on the Trip.
  5. CANOE MAP - Print your own map of the Islands we will be exploring!
  6. Gather Snorkel Gear.  The Troop will rent a limited supply of Snorkel Gear from our Trainers on the Snorkel BSA Training day (Troop will pay), but if you have your own, or would like to get some, please bring it and use it!
