Troop 990 will return to Lost Pines Scout Ranch in Bastrop, Texas, for a week of summer camp. Although the target attendees are beginning and 2nd year scouts, many older scouts attend also. Cost has not been set for 2017. Registration payment will be due in March 2017.
As a troop, our goal is to take crews to Northern Tier roughly every three years and to Philmont every two years.

Scouts and Scouters will need a US passport since the trip crosses the international border. The cost will be about $1800 depending on airfare. There may be at least two shakedown campouts in the spring. Scouts must be 14 years of age or have finished 8th grade and be at least 13 years old to participate.
If you are interested in going on these trips as scout or adult leader, please contact the Scoutmaster of Troop 990. Since these are in early stages of planning, the cost has not been set.
