NB Boy Scouts May Newsletter Troop 315
Wood District Spring Camporee was a great success. 200 scouts and scouters came to North Baltimore for an automotive themed event. 17 of the 14 troops in Wood county were represented. Events like this require lots of volunteer hours and I would like to thank Dave Schultz of ESC for his role, John Bailey, The American Legion, and everyone who participated in the event.
Armed Forces Camporee
May 16 – 18 is the Armed Forces Camporee at Hancock County fairgrounds. Our troop helps Troop 337 with meals for our armed military that weekend plus we get to camp. It's a fundraiser and there is no cost for the event. There will be a grocery list going around for meals throughout the day. Please let me know if you are interested in this camp. The fairgrounds also has a giant military swap meet and WWII re-enactment.
Memorial Day Parade
May 26 at 9:00am. We have been invited by the American Legion to march in the Memorial Day Parade and line up is at 8:45am in front of the fire station. Wear your class A uniform for the event. We understand if you're in band.
Summer camp & BSA physicals
Please remember to have a completed BSA physical done prior to June 1st. Part A,B, C plus a copy of your insurance card are required to participate in summer camp.
A Committee meeting is being planned for May 14 at 7:00pm at scout house. Please plan on attending. There will be committee training that evening by Wood District representative. We also have some items that need voted on. Class B t-shirts for the troop and a number patch with troop charter date.

This is what you usually thing of for a "camporee" - tents and food!
But in North Baltimore sometimes we do things a bit differently, as a recent camporee by NB Troop 315.
The scouts learn how to work on cars, including basic maintenance.
There was also plenty of camping going on at the NB Village Park.
