Hello T96 Summer Campers!If you are attending 2016 summer camp with Troop 96, run don’t walk, to Tent Day!
…or have someone drive you, if that makes more sense.)
Tent Day will take place on Saturday, 6/18/2015, at 9:00 AM. We will meet in the GPMC parking lot (16 Lake Shore, GPF). Pizza & pop will be provided (upon completion, unless we finish early. In that case the troop saves money and you can go home and mow the lawn).
An explanation for those who have not yet participated in Tent Day. We will take all of the Troop’s tents out and set them up in the parking lot. The goal is to check all tents to ensure that they have all of the parts; lightly clean them; identify tents that need repair and send them to the manufacturer; and to determine whether any tents should be replaced.
Scouts, who are going to summer camp and participate in Tent Day, can select and reserve a tent for summer camp. This is also a great time to choose your summer camp tent-mate!
What’s that you say? You have a conflict with baseball, lacrosse, badminton, curling and cannot attend Tent Day? Make contact with your tent buddy beforehand!
Please wear sunscreen
Arriving ‘having had’ breakfast

If your scout has not yet signed up for summer camp and would like to attend, please drop off the fee and MB worksheet to 283 Hillcrest by Friday.

Happy Scouting!

The Air Zoo is a great little museum, with flight simulators and great exhibits on the history of flight!
On October 3, several scouts from Troop 96 acted as greeters at the Grosse Pointe Historical Society’s Radio Hour. The entertainment included several local actors, who portrayed various characters in a “live radio” styled show, with a surprise visit by “Le Lutin”, a legendary monster from our local past. Kerrigan, Bryan, Tom, Mark, Angelo and Donovan all showed up on a chilly, rainy day, to support our community.
