Katy Trail Campout 2017

Let’s go ride bikes!

The Katy Trail is a converted railroad track, and America’s longest “rails-to-trail” project. The trail stretches for 237 miles across most of the state of Missouri. More than half of it follows Lewis and Clark’s path up the Missouri River. We’ll ride our bikes beneath towering river bluffs with bald eagles circling high overhead.

  • Plan and conduct a troop bicycle ride
  • Rank advancement
  • Have fun!!

  • On Saturday morning, we will drive from New Franklin to Rocheport, where we will pick up the rental bikes (Other bikes must be carried on vehicles).  We will bike 15 miles to Easley, where we will eat lunch (Provided by the Troop), and then bike back to Rocheport.  Older scouts may organize and conduct a longer trek with adequate adult supervision and alternative lunch arrangements.  Troop will also provide a post-ride snack in Rocheport.  After all bikers have returned to Rocheport, we will drive back to New Franklin and work with younger Scouts on rank advancement.

  • $35.00 Per Scout and $25.00 Per adult.

Meet Troop 324

As your Cub Scout career comes to a close and you consider which Boy Scout Troop to join, we want you to know that Troop 324 is looking for new Scouts, just like you.  Our Troop has about 30 friendly scouts who like to have fun.  Most of the scouts attend Oxford and California Trail Middle Schools and Blue Valley Northwest and Olathe East High Schools.  We go camping once a month during the school year, spend over a week each summer at the Bartle Boy Scout Reservation on Truman Lake, and go on a “high adventure” trip about every summer.  We’ve gone white water rafting in the Rocky Mountains, backpacking at Philmont, sailing in the Florida Keys and canoeing on the boundary waters of northern Minnesota.  We learn Scouting skills, cook our own food, and make lifelong friends as we explore the great outdoors.

 

Please join us for our meet our troop night, fall activities, cookout and campfire at Christ Lutheran Church on Saturday, October 14th from 3:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

We promise you’ll have a great time!  You’re more than

welcome to spend Saturday night camping with us if you’d like, provided that

one of your parents camps with you.

 

To let us know that you can come to our Meet our Troop event, or to drop us a line if you have any questions, please email our Recruitment Chair, Paul Crabtree at phcrabtree@gmail.com .  Hope to see you soon!
