2015 Leadership Retreat


Troop 122 Leadership Retreat - medium

We have an exciting announcement for our Troop!
Troop 122 is hosting our Leadership Retreat on Sunday, January 4 from Noon to 5pm.

This retreat is an opportunity for our Scouts to learn, grow and forge a strong future. This will benefit our Scouts and our troop!

We’re expecting attendance from current leaders such as Senior Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol members, Patrol Leaders, Assistant Patrol Leaders and others with positions of responsibility.

In addition to our current leaders, we suggest others to attend as well. We would expect to see our “upcoming leaders” attend as well. What’s an upcoming leader? Plan to join if you are a First Class or above & you desire to hold a leadership position in the next couple of years.

This will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about basic leadership concepts that will help every boy as they mature into adulthood. Leadership training is valuable for all and is a critical skill employers seek as they interview, hire and promote. Our Scouts will learn from troop adults, a soldier in a leadership position, and others. We will have discussions and exercises as a team. Everyone will leave the retreat feeling energized and better equipped to handle their future with confidence.

1. Set the stage for leadership – why is leadership important for you and your troop?

2. Leadership basics and examples of various leadership styles

3. Outline the responsibilities, expectations, and best practices for leadership positions in the troop. Establish leadership elements of Troop Meetings, Campouts, Summer Camp and PLCs.

4. Game plan to improve leadership and set plans for ongoing leadership training for our troop.

Want more information? Contact Mr Tom Foster or any other troop leader.

Bashaw Farm Recap from Troop Historian Duncan C.

We started out at the church packing our stuff into the cars we were going to ride in. Then we left for camp at the Robinson Farm. Mr. Robinson and his family is nice enough to let us camp there every year. This is my second year going and can’t wait to go back. We were there in about 2 hours. Then we set every thing up including dining flies, tents and cook boxes and then went to sleep. The next day we cooked breakfast with the dutch oven. It had Sausage, eggs, milk and cheese and it was good. Then we started the activities which were either going to the Museum or Farm. I chose farm and I chose right. We rode little jeeps and got to go on the tractor. After that we went back to camp and had lunch which was a sandwich and some chips. Then we started doing the paintballs and other stuff. I loved the paintballs and I even knocked the cap off. Then we just hung out at the camp fire. At dinner we had some barbecue and it was awesome! Then we did some skits and they were funny.My favorite was the monk skit. Then we went to sleep. The next morning we packed and had some REALLY good breakfast. Like Sausage, Bacon And other good food. Then we put our things in our cars and left to go home.

Mr. Robertson returns to Panama in 2014 – Call for Donations of New Reading Glasses

Mr. Robertson is on track for two trips to Panama in 2014 to serve as an adult sponsor for a High School student trip and a College student trip. The dates of both trips are March 15-22 and June 13-21. Both trips will take him to the villages of Chepo, Chiman, and Union Santena, with possible trek to the Wounaan village of Meje. While there he will conduct his normal visits with the elderly members of these villages and provide reading glasses as a gift of goodwill and an example of doing his ‘Duty to God’, in showing love and compassion for those who are less fortunate.

If you wish to help Mr. Robertson he will be accepting donations of NEW only, reading glasses for both men and women. These can be purchased very economically at either Sam’s Club or Costco in packages of three. Other locations that are very reasonable on prices are the Dollar Tree store. Glasses come in various strengths and the most common that Mr. Robertson provides are (+1.75, +2.00, +2.25, +2.50, +2.75, and +3.00). The greatest need is in the 2.25 through 2.75 range. Mr. Robertson will be attending most of the meetings in January, February, and March, including the January and March campouts. You can also arrange for a pickup by e-mailing him at allen.robertson or phoning at 913-945-0068.

If you are interested in other ways to assist Mr. Robertson and his team you may also freely reach to him in the above contact points and discuss ways that you too can reach to lives in another country and make a difference in your world.

November Campout Recap

The following is a recap of the November campout told by our Troop Historian Duncan C.

Troop 122’s November trip to the Strategic Air Command (SAC) Museum

What Troop 122 did on the November campout. First we loaded our bags into the cars we were riding in for the trip to the Zoo and SAC. The trip to the Omaha Zoo took about 3 hours from Overland Park. There were many different types of animals like Gorillas, Bears, and lots of other animals. My favorite animal was a little Monkey. When I put my face close to the window he opened his mouth and hissed at me! It was hilarious!

After the Zoo we went to dinner at Golden Corral. There was Steak, Chocalate fountains, Ice Cream and lots of other food. After dinner we went to the SAC museum. It had fighter planes, passenger planes, many jets a lot of different kinds flying machines! Then we found out we had a Merit Badge called Astronomy.

The Requirements were not that challenging, but weren’t too easy either. First thing we did was enter a room that showed us space on a projector which was pretty cool! Then we were able to see the North Star. We had to draw a picture where it might be next. After that we viewed the different Suns! We saw our Sun and it wasn’t the biggest out of all of them. There was a Sun that was 50x times the size of our Sun! Are last Requirement was to learn about meteors. Last we thing we saw was where they hit on the computer!

After we earned the Merit Badge we watched a movie! I can’t remember the name of it but everyone enjoyed seeing it. When we woke up the next day we packed up and thanked the workers for letting us come. When we were on the rode we stopped at Starbucks for breakfast. I got 2 plain Bagels and ate them both pretty quick. After breakfast we were on the rode and got home! I really enjoyed this campout with my Troop!
