Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!! 

Troop 940 is chartered by St. John Parish of West Chester, and is in the Fort Hamilton District of the Dan Beard Council.  We meet on Thursday nights, 7:00pm to 8:30pm, at the St. John Center.

  Sea Base 2016 Participants:


Thanks again for everyone's response to our recent e-mail!  As we are approaching some key dates, we would like to hold a brief (15-20 minutes) meeting for parents and scouts (though Scouts may need to be in the Troop activities) at this Thursday's Troop meeting.  The meeting will be right after opening flags, and will cover certification requirements & opportunities, payment timeframes and amounts, and a brief discussion of logistics. Also, me may have Mr. Cooper there to provide some insight from his previous time at SeaBase, so that will be invaluable.

Thank you to everyone that could make it to the Court of Honor tonight. I was truly touched by the welcome I received as the troop's new Scoutmaster. I will do my best to make sure I'm worthy of the confidence you've shown in me.
