Attention all boys!  The next few weeks ballots will be available to all interested in a leadership position.  We are looking for boys who have a vision for their role they would like to achieve.There are roles for all types of leadership so please consider running!

Attention all adults! If you want to know how you can do more for your boy in Troop 18 Get trained!

The Hightower Trail SLT (Scout Leader Training) is scheduled for the evenings of October 2, 9, 16, and 23.  The matching ITOLS (Introduction To Outdoor Leadership Skills) is scheduled for November 1-2.  Note:  The HT training classes do not always happen due to low registration.  If someone signs up for them, they would not know until it was too late to take a different class whether or not the HT class will happen.
If you cannot make the four night training sessions you can also take the classwork session in one full day session. There are two single-day SLTs coming up:
September 2 Foothills District (Marietta)
September 27 Northern Ridge District (Alpharetta)  
After completing SLT, the scouter then needs to take ITOLS.  There are a couple of districts in addition to HT that have ITOLS weekends in September or October:
September 12-14 Southern Crescent District (South Fulton)
September 26-28 Sppalachian Trail District (Canton)
October 3-5 Silver Comet Trail District (Acworth)
October 3-5 Foothills District (Camp Windy Water near Cartersville)
It is generally not necessary to take SLT and ITOLS from the same district.  If someone wanted to go to a single-day SLT and then take ITOLS with Hightower Trail, that would probably be OK (need to check to confirm this).  There are other districts offering ITOLS to anyone interested regardless of where they took SLT.
With all of these options, there is really no reason why T18 adults should not be trained!

Summer Camp!

Posted by admin on Jun 21 2014 - 8:27pm

I would like to take a few minutes to acknowledge a very successful 2014 Scout Camp at Camp Rainey Mountain.  The camp was well run and the staff very much made a difference.  I love the fact the Camp Director has been doing Summer Camp since 1992.  The Camp ranger is a Minister, and Scoutmaster and our Guide was with us all the way including meeting us as we rolled off this morning.
