January Camping at Camp Ockanickon

Start: Friday, Jan 22 2021 at 06:30 PM

End: Sunday, Jan 24 2021 at 11:00 AM

Location: Ockanickon Scout Reservation

Join Troop 152 for our January trip to Camp Ockanickon. We will be staying at a site with enough Lean-To's for everyone. But, it'll be pretty chilly! (Around 20 degrees).

Attendance at our annual Cold Weather Training on January 12th is required. And, we'll be doing a shakedown at the January 19th troop meeting to make sure everyone has the appropriate gear.

If you can't make either of these meetings, contact the Scoutmaster Nick Iaquinto or SPL Alec Chang.

Since we're still under COVID restrictins, we will still be doing individual cooking. We'll discuss what everyone is planning at the Jan. 19th meeting trip prep as well.

Plan to cook some hearty food to hold off the cold. Thanks to Mr. Fleck, we'll also have 5 backpacking stoves/cook kits available.

2021 Rechartering

2020 is almost over. It went by way to quick. And as we approach 2021, we have our annual rechartering, where we all have the chance to sign up to stay in scouts for another year of activities.

This year, the West Point Foundation has generously offered to subsidize the fast rising cost of the national BSA fee. So, instead of $65 scouts will only have to pay $35.

If you have any questions, let us know!

For adult leaders, note that you also have to download and sign the Additional Disclosures & Background Check Authorization form.

November Camping at Camp Delmont OA Lean-To's

Start: Friday, Nov 06 2020 at 06:30 PM

End: Sunday, Nov 08 2020 at 12:00 PM

Location: OA Lean-to Site at Delmont Scout Reservation

Join Troop 152 for our November trip to Camp Delmont. We will be staying at the OA Lean-To site.

Since we're still under COVID restrictins, we will still be doing individual cooking. We're getting some pretty good experience now. And, I've seen some delicious choices. So, we'll brainstorm on Nov. 3rd to come up with ideas for everyone.


Wreath Sale

It’s that time of the year again! The troop’s annual Wreath Sale fundraiser is back. This is the only fundraiser we have to fund the Troop’s activities. What is unique is that this fundraiser can fund your trips as well! We would like every scout to sell at least 12 wreaths.

Wreaths are $20 and stands are $2. These are Douglas Fir Wreaths grown in Pennsylvania, and delivered to us the day after Thanksgiving.

As usual, you can earn Scout Points for each wreath you sell. The point distribution is as follows:

Wreaths Points
1-24 2 / wreath
25+ 3 / wreath

Wreath sales from a family of Scouts/Scouters will be combined to establish point awards. However, each scout/scouter must report their sales individually to establish scout point distribution among family members.

Points can be redeemed for scouting trips. Scouts have been known to pay for summer camp from wreath sales! This is a busy time of year, but work now can result in a lot of free trips! The money from this fundraiser supports the troop and is mainly used to purchase equipment.

Selling Tips

Smile and be friendly. Be sure to explain that the wreath is a quality product; not only is the customer getting a beautiful holiday decoration but is supporting a good cause as well!

Personalize it! Let your customer know that the proceeds help the troop buy and maintain camping equipment and helps defray costs of scouting activities. (Tell them about the great trips we take!)

Please get cash or check in advance. Checks should be payable to "BSA Troop 152". Though, previous customers accustomed to pay on delivery are also acceptable.

Turning in Sales

Hooray! You've made a sale. When you go to turn in you sales, you need to put everything in an envelope with the following information:

Then, you can drop it all off on the wreath table at the weekly scout meeting. For example, the front of your envelope should look like this:
