Countdown to Yawgoog: 12 Days to Go!

Only 12 more days until Yawoog!

So to help you get into the spirit, we’re giving you a few ideas to help you Be Prepared for a great week at camp!

Tip of the Day

Did you know that the theme for Week 4 at Sandy Beach is “Turn Back the Clock“?

The Troop Leadership has decided to use the movie “Back to the Future” as an inspiration for our camp project.  So if you haven’t seen the movie recently (or at all!), see if you can find it on TV or borrow it from the library and learn all about the Twin Pines Mall, the clock tower, flux capacitors and why it takes 1.21 Gigawatts of power to travel through time!

Also think about what it might have been like to be a Boy Scout in the 1950’s.  What would you have done if you were a Boy Scout in the past?  What skills would need, what things would be different, what would be the same.

In addition to our in-camp project, we’ll need to have some ideas for costumes for the dress-up dinner on Thursday. Talk to your friends and see if you can come up with some creative ideas that fit in with the week’s theme.  Maybe we can look like some cool Scouts from the 50’s or the 80’s.  Maybe we can get the Troop 591 band to play the theme from the movie.

So – although it’s summer time – put your thinking cap on and let’s see what great ideas we can come up with to prove once again that Troop 591 is the coolest little Troop in camp!
