Need Merit Badges - Advance Camp - time to sign up NOW!

Posted on Aug 17 2018 - 12:11am

Dear Scouts,

For those Scouts who are attending Advance Camp and who have not already provided your list of 4 Merit Badge classes, please click below on the red Google doc link and type your desired Merit Badge classes. The deadline to submit classes is this Saturday, 5 pm.


We have 17 scouts attending and still have room for other Troop 224 Scouts, so those of you who have not signed up yet, please go to the Troop website and sign up!!!!

YIS Mr. Kraszulyak

Advance Camp provides an opportunity to take merit badge courses and to achieve rank advancements in one day. Troop 224 will pay the registration fees for each Scout who attends Advance Camp. Parents would reimburse Troop 224 the registration fee only if their Scout cancels or decides to not attend after we have already paid his fee to Advance Camp. 

The event begins on Friday afternoon and continues all day on Saturday.  Troop 224 Scouts attend the Saturday sessions and we will meet at Acalanes High School early Saturday morning, then will carpool to the Solano Fairgrounds. As we get closer to the event date, I will send a carpool email and reminder to everyone.

You can explore the Advance Camp website by clicking:  Home

Event Date:   September 28th (Friday) and 29th (Saturday)

Location:   Solano County Fairgrounds, Vacaville, CA (Across the street from Six Flags Marine World)

Event Details:  


New Registrations - For those Scouts who have not already registered on the Troop 224 website. You want to sign-up at the Troop 224 website and in the Notes box list the 4 merit badges classes you want to take in the order of your preference.  For example,

1. Camping; 2.  Art; 3. Chess; and 4. Music. 

For those Scouts who registered already on the Troop 224 website before Advance Camp posted the 2018 Merit Badges classes, you can list your preferred classes on the Google spreadsheet link below.

Alaska Trip - Important Information

Posted on May 27 2018 - 12:08am

Proposed Date; 6/9/2019-6/19/2019

I have attached proposed itinerary as well as trip guideline from Midnight sun council. 

Proposed itinerary plan: 

Depart: SFO/OAK to Fairbanks 6/9/2019 (Depend on time and flight fee)

Return : Anchorage to OAK/SFO  6/19/2019

Flight will likely layover in Seattle.   However, if we have layover in Canada,  You all will need to have a passport ready.

 Who qualifies for this trip;

  Troop 224 handbook Pg 48: junior in high school with life scout rank at the time of trip. 

Participation Fees; Full payment due at the sign up for scouts with no refund if anyone drop out(unless you find replacement). First 18 people (first come first serve basis), after first 18, you will be on standby. If we have too many interested party, priority will be given to scouts. 4 ULs are required to go to make this trip possible.

Adult interested in the party; Please send me email and let me know. I will ask upfront payment as soon as I sort out the numbers of scouts who is interested in going. 

Northern lights council will charge by block of participant instead of per person so we would like to take advantage of the best deal by making full crew instead of missing one or two spots which participants end up paying more.

Sign up dealine; 5/31/2018

Below fee include full excursion and flight.

Adult: $3500

Scout: $1500

Leading ULs; This will cover 4ULs and 1 Backup UL basic fees for the trip. This means if excursion fee comes out more than planned, each UL will pay for that price to give the most benefits to participating senior scouts. Excursion may change depend on accessibility and availability. The excursion fee is not final until April 2019 per Alaskan Council. ULs' non refundable deposit at the time sign up: $200

Please send me the copy of payment receipts to save my communication with treasurer. 

### Midnight council trip is based on 7days. Our troop trip is 10 days!

Any questions or missing information: Please send me email!

YIS, Sue
