Hello Troop 93 families - Hopefully everyone is doing well, staying safe and not going too crazy during these trying times!  I would like to pass along some information received from the Valencia District meeting last night.  Per our District Executives, Council hopes to be back in operation on May 11.  This is the best case scenario and the final determination will be made based on CDC information.  Camporee has been postponed to sometime this fall and Scout-o-Rama has been cancelled.  For now, everything scheduled after May 11 is still a go.

Scouting is alive and well - Are you staying connected and active?

Troop 93 Scouts and Scouters - 
 
I don't know about all of you, but I certainly miss all of the action on Tuesday nights and on all of our outings and adventures.  As the weeks go by and we are not getting out to enjoy the adventures we had planned on our Troop outings calendar, I have found myself looking back at some of our amazing adventures of the past several years.  Mr. Bretz has helped spark this with sending out his Trail Notes from past outings and his postings on the Troop 93 Instagram page.
 
Just a little over a year ago a small assault team from Troop 93 tackled the Trans Catalina Trail on a 5 day - 4 night backpacking trek.  That was an amazing trip!  Check out the photos on the Troop 93 Shutterfly site!

Troop 93 Scouts and Scouters - 
 
Just a little over 3 weeks ago, Troop 93 had 12 Scouts and 6 adults complete a 24.6 mile day hike from the OCBSA IROEC to the OCBSA Newport Sea Base.  This hike, combined with learning about Scouting's rich History in Orange County will earn us the NEWEST OCBSA High Adventure Award - "Orange County Historic Trails Award"  Troop 93 is the first Unit to complete this hike and in order to earn this award and we need to turn in our trail notes and report.  Don't forget to include pictures and fun stories - ie - what was story behind the nick name of "Sign Post"?
 
Scouts - ! it's time to complete your portion of the Trail Notes and OCBSA Scouting History report. 

NYLT National Youth Leadership Training

Posted by MJSven on Apr 1 2020 - 7:11pm

The 2020 National Youth Leadership Course will be held at Lost Valley on July 27 to August 1.

Learn how to teach with National Youth Leadership Training
Many tasks in your unit involve teaching others. Having excellent teachers makes learning easier and activities more fun!
How do youth learn the EDGE method of teaching - Explaining, Demonstrating, Guiding and Enabling - to make sure the person learning knows how to use the skill effectively? It’s no fun to just listen to someone talk about it or see someone else do it. When you use the EDGE method, Scouts really learn how to Do the skill!
 Your solution: National Youth Leadership Training. Monday July 27th, 2020 to Saturday August 1st, 2020 at Schoepe Scout Reservation at Lost Valley. View flyer.
