Join the Troop 10 family in the faith, love & walk on Monday, April 13th.
In today’s world, individualism is more widespread than ever. This shift of focus has led to a community that focuses less and less on the things that make us truly happy. We’re going to change all that in just one week. We’ll rekindle relationships, form promising new connections, and turn one ripple of kindness into an unstoppable wave of faith and love. Give us SevenDays and, together, we can change the world.
Following the April 13, 2014 tragedy at the Jewish Community Campus and Village Shalom in Overland Park, Kansas, a group of caring individuals decided that we, as a community, have the power to outshine and overcome such senseless acts of hate. SevenDays is a challenge for young and old, to embrace diversity across races, religions and cultures. Through three events, Faith, Love & Song, Faith, Love & Kindness and Faith, Love & Walk, we hope to promote understanding and encourage kindness to Make a Ripple to Change the World.
On April 13, 2015, we will begin the walk as a “society” embracing our diversity and common values and end as a “community.” Join us this evening, as we gather and stand against hate. We will move ONWARD sharing Faith, Love & Kindness with our neighbor.
We will begin our walk at the Jewish Community Campus (JCC) in Overland Park and end with a Celebration at the Church of Resurrection (COR) in Leawood, Kansas.
The Troop 10 family will be walking in the faith, love & walk. We will meet as a Troop family at JCC and walk to gather in our Class A uniforms.

Troop 10 is moving to a new tent that will give our Scouts more room, an area to store muddy stuff and a simple two pole set-up. These new tents have been negotiated with Alps Mountaineering for a special Troop 10 price. If anyone would like to purchase a tent for your son or yourself, please contact Ron Clary by February 14th.
Alps Mountaineering 4 with Aluminum Poles = 98.42
Alps Mountaineering 4- Footprint Floor Saver Ground cloth = 24.99
Total = $123.41
New Tent Program:
All Troop 10 Scouts will receive a new Alps 4 as they leave the Mustang Program and are assigned to the patrol – usually in September. This year at the March campout we will be assigning new Alps tents to the 2014 Mustang group. These tents will require the Scout and their parent to sign a tent upkeep contract. The Scout and his parents will be responsible for the upkeep of the tent while the Scout is in Troop 10. As the Scout leaves Troop 10 he will return the tent and it will be evaluated for normal wear. All parts, poles, stakes, fly, and main tent are the responsibility of the Scout. If any part gets damaged or lost the Scout may buy a replacement part through the troop.
Troop 10 policy requires all Scouts to sleep 2-3 per tent. It is recommended that the Scouts rotate thier tent usage with their tent mates.
We will do a complete instruction course on tent set-up when the tents are assigned at the March campout. It is recommended that all parents be available for set-up and care instruction. We will add set-up and care instruction to the website.
At the February 9th Troop 10 meeting we will be setting up all current Troop 10 Eureka tents. All tents will be evaluated. We will keep the best of the best and make sure all tents are complete and in excellent condition. Tents will be reassigned (in most cases back to the previous owner). The tents will be assigned to Scout pairings and a care contract agreement will be signed by the Scouts. Responsibility for the care of the tent will be the Scouts. Lost or broken poles, stakes or other parts may be purchased from the troop by the Scout as needed.
Troop 10 will no longer replace poles, stakes or tent repairs for free. The cost to repair and replace parts is the Scouts. Make sure you take care of your tent.
Troop 10 will no longer have a tent adoption program.
If you have any questions about the new tent program please contact Ron Clary, Troop 10 committee chair.
