We ussually have a week at the council camp for "everybody". Old and new
Scouts. Heavy MB and first year program. Obviously some can not go.
We have second week of High adventure for expereinced Scouts. This year
backpacking in Canando for a week.

Heck, you should hear a robot yelling "Warning Will Robinson, Danger
Danger" not just sirens. I sense some other type of problem not
mentioned here. A patrol joins a troop. A patrol that doesn't join a
troop but does it's own thing is called a NEW troop.
Is the old "den" leader having a problem not being in charge anymore?
Are the parents who are bringing over the boys looking for a coup? Are
they unhappy with current Troop leader ship, but are being forced to
join this troop? What's up?
