This website is a place to promote the Troop to the general public and to communicate with our existing members and parents.
There are two basic areas of this site:
We will be conducting Board of Reviews for boys who are trying to advance in rank at the Family Camp Court of Honor in September on the following dates:
Dates: August 5, 12, 19, and Sept 2.
Time: 7:00 @ Scout Cabin
Although there are no regular meetings scheduled on Aug 5 and 12 because of shooting and hiking, we are making ourselves available at the scout cabin to do reviews for anyone who needs it and is not participating in the activity.
Please note : do not wait until the last date to schedule your review. If you are ready, schedule it early so we do not have everyone scheduling the last 2 weeks at the same time. I can only fit about 5 kids in per evening for a review.
Important: Sept. 2nd is the absolute last day for BOR for ranking up at Family Camp Court of Honor. I’m sorry, but I cannot accept any other reviews after that date because I will be finalizing reports for Council. Any BOR’s that are done after that date will be toward the next COH in the Spring. Thanks for understanding.
Also, I will need at least 2 parents (not related to BOR candidate) to sit in on the reviews. If you can help with this, especially the dates of August 5th and 12th, please let me know.
French Creek State Park is a 7,526-acre park in Berks County, PA. It straddles northern Chester County and southern Berks County along French Creek. It is located in the Hopewell Big Woods. The park is the home of two lakes: Hopewell Lake, a 68-acre warm water lake, and Scotts Run Lake, a 22-acre cold water lake. The state record smallmouth bass was caught in Scotts Run Lake. There are extensive forests, and almost 40 miles of hiking and equestrian trails. The park is also friendly to mountain bikers, having some renowned technical trails. Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site, which features a cold blast furnace restored to its 1830s appearance, is surrounded by the park.
French Creek State Park was chosen by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and its Bureau of State Parks as one of "25 Must-See Pennsylvania State Parks"
A disc golf course is open year round at the park. The course winds through the woods near Hopewell Lake and provides both short and long pin locations. Score cards and maps of the course are available at the park.
French Creek State Park is considered by some as the "Orienteering Capital of North America". A permanent course is set up at the park. The goal is to find markers within the park by using a map and a compass. Maps are available at the park office.

Troop 67 is sponsoring their 4th annaul clothing drive fundraising event with a target pick up date of Mid to Late October (exact date still to be finalized). In order to collect the optimum 300+ bags (black 30 gallon garbage bags), we are asking each family to try and collect at least 15 bags. If we don't have 300 bags, we will have to share the truck with another funding raising organization and pick up will be on their schedule.
We are asking families to please start collecting now and ask extended family, friends and neighbors! In mid-September we would like to get a preliminary count from everyone on how many bags they expect to collect so we can determine the likelihood of reaching the 300 bag goal.
Items that can be donated other than clothes:
For full info see attached flyer or go to the fashion republic website www.fashionrepublicinc.com.
Small boxes for toys are available if needed. If requested, we can bring them to a troop meeting.
Also, if you are having a problem storing the bags until the pick-up, please let us know and we will make arrangement to store at alternate location.
This is a great opportunity for everyone to de-clutter your home of unwanted items and also raise a significant amount of money for the troop. With a full truck we could raise at least $800. We are looking forward to full participation in this effort.
