Wednesday 2/4 will be the final week for signup and we will decide what adventures we will request in the lottery.

In additon for scuba adventures; Scuba certification before attending sea base will include class room and pool sessions as well as one open water dive.  The cost will run about $600-800 + your own mask, snorkel, Fins and wet suit boots.   This is what I could find on the web tonight base on one local dive shop.  I will do some more research before the next meeting.

You can still sign up at the next two meetings.  Steve Turner or I will be available to answer questions.

 

 

Dan Cerone Memorial High Adventure Scholarship

Dan Cerone was a committed Boy Scout leader in Troop 947. He also was a Cub Scout leader in Pack 946. Dan’s life was cut short by heart disease but his memory and love for High Adventure will live on through a High Adventure Scholarship Fund donated to Troop 947 by his loving family.

The Dan Cerone Memorial High Adventure Scholarship is designed to support youth members of Troop 947 who would like to participate in the troop’s high adventure opportunities but requires financial assistance. A $500 scholarship is available to youth members of Troop 947 who meet the eligibility requirements of the campership program offered by the high adventure facility the troop will be visiting.

For further details and information on how to apply or if you would like to donate to the Scholarship fund, please contact the Scoutmaster or Committee Chair.
