Let's Go Sailing!!!
September 16-18
Sailing at Lakewood Yacht Club, Camping at Galveston State Park

The Dragons are organizing a bunch of cool activities so don’t miss out!

We will camp at  Galveston State Park, about 90 minutes away (without traffic). On Saturday morning you will be sailing with a qualified sailing instructor who will be covering all the requirements to obtain the “Small Boat Sailing” Merit Badge.   Following sailing, the scouts will return to the Galveston SP campsite for more fun cooking, fishing and attending a campfire. 

The cost for sailing and camping is $75 ($55.00 for sailing and $20 for camping).  If you skip the sailing, the cost is just $20.00.  Click to complete this Permission Form to be submitted to Mr. Ewing or Mr. Venkatachalam.  

You can pay by with the  PayPal link below or by check made out to Troop 266 also submitted to Messrs.  Ewing or Venkatachalam at a Troop meeting.   

If you are sailing, the Lakewood Yacht Club requires a short permission form to be signed by a parent or legal guardian.  This form will be distributed shortly.  

Each sailor must be current on the swim test. If you aren’t or don’t know if you are, contact Mr. Ewing ( or Mr. Venkatachalam (
