Trail to Eagle Campout - March 3-5
Brazos Bend State Park

It’s the most exciting time of the year, welcoming Arrow of Light Scouts into the troop. With the excitement comes the most memorable campout as a scout, Trail to Eagle (TTE) at Brazos Bend State Park.  This is "the" campout that launches you as a young scout into the adventures of the outdoors.  Don’t miss out!  As a  young Boy Scout, this campout opens up a plethora of advancement opportunities within the Scout and Tenderfoot Ranks and  is filled with lots fun and fellowship with the scouts of Troop 266.


 Older scouts, this campout presents an enormous opportunity which you have been yearning for all year to exhibit your leadership skills via coaching, mentoring and teaching the fundamentals of Boy Scouts skills to our new scouts. Annually the TTE has been a huge success primarily because the troop is scout led. We need you to keep up the tradition! Your troop will need a lot of older scouts to help because of the large class of new scouts.  Let’s take this to the next level.


SO SIGN UP by 24th February.   Complete the campout  PERMISSION FORM and pay the $25 registration fee using the PayPal button abov e or by check made out to Troop 266.  Please submit any checks and Permission Forms to either Mr. Gerritt Ewing or Mr. Rama Venkatachalam
