What's Up - in a Nutshell

The Troop 179 Annual Plan is developed each August. This is a listing of proposed events for the year. Each year our planning goals are:
  • at least one camp out or other weekend activity each month.
  • two options for summer camp.
  • three Courts of Honor and a Green and Gold Banquet to recognize the achievements of Scouts.
  • two major community service projects. In the past, we have volunteered to prepare and serve dinner to the homeless at the Judeo-Christian Outreach Center.
We also schedule monthly  Patrol Leader's Conference (PLC) meeting where the youth leadership plans the details of events for the the upcoming month. as well as monthly Patrol Meetings.

Note: Details for events are posted on the Event Calendar on our Private member site. 

Information about district and council events can be found on the Tidewater Council Calendar:

All events conform to the procedures set out in The Guide to Safe Scouting. The last edition of the guide can be found at
