Philmont Trek 2024

Posted on Jan 23 2023 - 9:37pm



Troop 844 has been selected in the lottery to go on a Philmont trek in July 2024. It sounds like a long time away, however, the 18 months allows time for conditioning, team building and time to make payments.

This is a wonderful opportunity for scouts who are 14 or who are 13 and have completed 8th grade. There are a limited number of slots available, so if this is something you are interested in doing, please sign up ASAP.

Camp Cris Dobbins, 2023 Summer Camp, June 11 - June 17

Posted on Jan 23 2023 - 9:36pm

Let The Adventure Begin!

Nestled in the middle of the Black Forest, Camp Cris Dobbins offers sweeping views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Scouts will have a hard time choosing between the more than 50 merit badges offered here, and will love spending time on the water slides at the outdoor pool, dusting a clay at the Olympic shotgun range, channeling their inner movie star in our Movie Making program, or pretending to be Indiana Jones at our STEM lodge archaeology dig site. The convenience of meals from our dining hall and sleeping on raised wooden platforms in canvas wall tents will allow Scouts to focus on the only thing that matters: their next outdoor adventure!

[UPDATE 1/5]

It is not too late to sign up for this event. Scouts may bring friends. Pay through PayPal and put friends names in the “notes” section.

Parents who don’t camp: this is your opportunity to spend a “campout” with your daughter at an in-town event and you don’t need to sleep in a tent.

Scoutmaster Aamir is attending with one other parent, but needs YOUR help too. The more you participate with the troop, the more enthusiastic your daughter will be. Everyone is a volunteer.

Please do your part to help.

Service Hour opportunity

Posted on Nov 22 2022 - 8:42pm

We have been asked to provide 5 scouts for 2 service hour opportunities. The Lion’s club and Remax Realtors are holding their annual Holiday Food and Toy Drive. This culminates with the delivery of Holiday Food Baskets and Toys to families here in Coppell that would otherwise not have traditional holiday meals or age-appropriate toys for their children. There are 2 dates when our help is needed.

December 10, 1pm
Frost Bank food collection for 2 hours in the parking lot. Donations will be collected from people driving through.

December 16, 6pm
First United Methodist Church will be the location where all the collected food and toys will be sorted and assembled into “Food Baskets” for 2-3 hours.

Please get approval from Ms. Aamir and fill out the appropriate service hour form prior to the event.
