Boy Scout Troop 33
DeKalb, Illinois
OUR 1999 CALENDAR

BOY PLANNED
The Troop 33 program is boy planned at our annual weekend Patrol Leaders Retreat.   All Scouts have input into this plan through their patrol leader.

VIGOROUS SCHEDULE
During 1999 Troop 33 plans to offere 83 activities, including 47 that are free of cost. We strive to provide a wealth of outdoor opportunities to serve a wide variety of schedules and interests. Our annual plan is created during a weekend retreat of the Patrol Leaders Council.

SEEKING THE AIMS OF SCOUTING
The goal of our program is to teach citizenship, character, and fitness. We do this by creating numerous opportunities for leadership, shared responsibilities, and team building. We explore our national heritage by travel through 17 states exploring in all directions the fabric of our nation. We will also travel to Canada and Mexico to develop a better appreciation of other cultures and heritages building a stronger sense of world brotherhood. Character is developed through service projects and an active program of challenging programs that require Scouts to do their best. We promote physical fitness through active outdoor programs, mental fitness through leadership and planning, emmotional fitness through group interaction, and spiritual fitness through once in a lifetime experiences where Scouts see the great beauty and power of nature.

VARIED PROGRAM
We try to offer a variety of programs that appeal to a wide range of interests for boys of all ages and all ability levels.   Our program operates 12 months a year and we enjoy each season.
