 Sun June 19 - Sat June 25

Mark your calendars!  The Troop will be attending summer camp at Camp Orr, a Scouts BSA High Adventure Base located along the Buffalo National River in northwest Arkansas. Camp Orr offers 40 merit badge opportunities as well as the Buffalo Trails program which is specifically geared toward the younger Scout working on the early rank advancement requirements. Should be a fun week!

FRIENDLY REMINDER: Please pay your 2022 dues if you haven't already

You should have received an email on January 9th (and at least one reminder) from service@paypal.com with a subject of "Invoice from Troop 3 Austin." If you didn't receive an invoice, please check your junk folder. If can't find it, believe it to be incorrect or are not planning to continue with scouting, please contact Dave Bartelli. Paying dues promptly is important so that we can complete the annual recharter process and pay the BSA. Thank you!

Wilderness First Aid Training

Do you want to take Wilderness First Aid and CPR training?

Wilderness First Aid and CPR certification is a BSA requirement for every crew that goes to a high adventure base. Philmont requires that each crew has 2 trained members and Seabase requires 1. This is a comprehensive 2-day training class that prepares you to deal with medical issues and emergencies on Boy Scout trips.  The certification is valid for 2 years.
