    • Skit for Campfire.

    • Ingredients for cooking competition which is focused this year on backcountry cooking.  Registration will know where the bear bag line is located for you scouts to hang there meal and gear.

    • Ingredients for the Scoutmaster Cook Off - anything resembling Road Kill is great!

    • Bug repellant

    • Some money for trading post

    • For each patrol - two note cards and pens/pencils for the Semaphore station

    • Knot ropes for the emergency shelter station

    • For bear bagging a food sack (I carry a 13 liter nylon sack for person use), 40-50 feet of line (paracord is great) and a carabiner (key chain quality - not climbing)

    • For archery, batting gloves (thin, tight fitting) are helpful if you have them.

    • As always there will be lot of running around so think about your choice of footwear.  For most folks, sneakers are best.
    • Uniforms for morning flag ceremonies.
    • Patrol flag and yell
    • Something to brand
    • A story to tell. Mountain Men were notorious for their stories, true and tall tales alike. Come prepared to tell a tale.  1-2 minutes is about right. This is available to adults and youth. We will ask that a selection of the stories be retold at campfire.
    • Permission slip and make sure your health forms are current.

    Antietam Illumination

    Details coming soon

    The time spent setting up and cleaning up will count as SSL hours. 

    Dress warmly in layers including hat and gloves. There is little protection from the wind on the field. Don’t wear fabric sneakers or cotton clothes!

    Adult in charge: 

    Troop 1097 will support Antietam National Battlefield during this most somber yet beautiful event, the Memorial Illumination (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HjUxo4zk3Q or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTVAaQhyQZ8).

    More than 23,000 candles will be lit and lined up along the battlefield to pay tribute to the soldiers who were killed, wounded, or reported missing at the noteworthy Battle of Antietam. A half hour drive through the battlefield just after dark will reveal seemingly endless rows of candles to symbolize the lives that were lost that September day.  The Scouts (and family members who would also like to volunteer) will set up luminaries on "our field" throughout the day on December 1st and spend the weekend camping at Antietam.  SSL hours are available for this activity.

    Scouts and family volunteers will begin the day by putting the candles into the luminaries. After that, they will arrange the bags in lines on the field. We’ll eat bag lunches provided by the troop, probably have an hour or two of free time, then we’ll light the candles. There will be a short ceremony at the Maryland Memorial at dusk, after which the volunteers will be the first to drive through and see the Illumination. After we drive through the Illumination, the troop will enjoy a reception featuring cookies and homemade soup at the Washington County Agricultural Center, where we’re camping. A Scout is helpful, so we’ll also be assisting the reception staff with clean up afterward.

    In previous years, Troop 1097 was assigned to field #28.
