  • Coming up, the Mercer-Area-District "Camporee" at nearby Rosedale Park

    The second campout of the year is coming up quickly . . .  October 10th is the deadline for me to receive your permission slips and payment, as names are due to the District that day.

    It’s our local Scout District’s "Punkin Chunkin" on October 17th-19th at nearby Rosedale Park - an activity-packed weekend with lots of details (see attached), including:

    • Pumpkin Pie cooking contest
    • Fishing Derby
    • Pumpkin catapults (each Troop may construct and bring their own),
    • “Ghoul” Gateway (an entrance-way to Troop 43’s camp-site), and a
    • Campfire with skits.

    Pack 43 Webelos will be invited to come with a parent and register with Troop 43 (me).

    We will leave from Mapleton Nurseries and bring our Patrol equipment including food, equipment and tents.

    Class A uniforms are required for a part of Saturday's activities . . .

    Matthew Friedman will be leading this trip with Pablo Lapuerto and Dan Delaney.  Additional Troop 43 adult leaders with Youth Protection, etc. may also attend.   Please let me or Matt know asap.

    The fee is $50* per Scout, $25 per Webelo parent and $0 per registered Troop 43 leader.

    This fee includes the ($25/person) District camping fee with planned activities, and our typical budget for Troop food for the Scouts.   Adults will plan and bring and cook their own food.
    *(if cost is an issue, please contact me confidentially).

    The Webelos (with a parent or guardian) will be able to participate in many (not all) of the activities the Boy Scouts are doing and they may stay for either one or two nights.

    Webelos and their parent/guardian should register with me, NOT through their Pack.  

    Please return a completed permission slip (link is,
    along with a check made out to “Princeton Troop 43”.

    Both are needed to reserve a spot.  I will be at the upcoming Monday meetings or you may give to my wife Adrienne who attends as well.

    You can also drop off/mail everything to my house.
    Everything is due no later than October 10th at 6pm.

    Don't forget to update your health forms.  Mrs. Nishtar sent out an email earlier with the links.  Your health forms must be updated to go on this trip.
