We will be having our Cabin Campout February 23-24 2016. We will meet at NCCS at 6:45 AM and plan to leave by 7:05 AM. The SPL needs to know EXACTLY when everyone is leaving.
Adults will be handling the meals on this event, but everyone must pay in advance!
We are going to Camp Sunnen near Potosi Missouri. 11304 Sunnen Lake Road, Potosi, MO 63664 Here is a link to the Google Map Note: This is located on hoad 217 and is on the SE corner of lake Sunnen. We have had a few GPS units mislead you down road 218 (which is WRONG!)

We are staying in the South Bunkhouse (Not too far past the main enterance on the left)
Note: Moms are welcome on most scouting campouts. But, sometimes Cabin Campouts can be awkard for Moms to attend. This cabin has no seperate sleeping areas for Moms and limited private changing areas for the youth! Sometimes cabins DO have seperate sleeping areas but NOT this one! Most Scouting moms do not have a problem if somehow they accidently see a kid in his boxers (or even worse). The younger kids are very flexible and usually want to change in their sleeping bags and do not seem to care however the older Scouts are more sensitive to this issue (and some adults too)!
Pickup on Sunday will be LATE 4pm. It will take a little over 90 minutes to drive.

On Tuesday, September 27th of 2011, Mr. Mark Wilbur stepped down from his position of Troop 374's Scoutmaster. He had a great 25 year run and although he has stepped down, he will still be with the troop. As we thank him for his many years we start to turn to the new Scoutmaster, Nick Kobel. Mr. Wilbur did an amazing job and he was a great support for all people that have been in his life. To read his final Scoutmasters Minute read Spetember 27, 2011 Click Here

Troop 374 has a unique to program that we pride ourselves on: All new Eagle Scouts are eligible for a High Adventure scholarship program that we award to Scouts that earn their Eagle rank. Very few units offer such an opportunity! There MAY be a $400.00 cap efective for all new Eagles after September 1st, 2007. We have been forced to update the requirements to read: To qualify for the free high adventure trip, the rank of Eagle must be earned BEFORE their 17th birthday and there can be NO "emergency" board of reviews! The minium requirements state that you must be Life for at least 6 months to get Eagle. But it is rare for someone to complete it in less than a year. So, to get your free trip you should earn "Life" before you reach age 16! Lastly, to prevent scouts from transfering into our troop just to get the free trip, you must serve an *elected* leadership position with 374 and must also be active in our unit for at least one year to be eligible.
