Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 123

We meet Friday nights at 7:00 PM in the Sacred Heart School located on Merrick Ave. in North Merrick.

Troop Swim April 25th

This year's Troop 123 swim test will once again be at Echo Park on Friday April 25th 2014 at 6:30pm.
This swim test is mandatory for anyone that will be attending the May Whitewater Rafting Trip.
This Swim Test is also something all the new scouts should attend even if they are not going on the Whitewater Rafting Trip as they will earn certainRank Advancements needed.
There is also plenty of time to just enjoy swimming in the pool.
We will meet outside at Echo Park Pool promptly at 6:15 and enter as a troop.
Everyone should wear their bathing suit under their clothing when arriving at the park.
Please see attached for the Troop Consent Form. This needs to be filled out for every scout attending.
The cost for the Troop Swim is $5.00.
The cost for anyone coming into the pool area is $5.00.
I will be collecting consent forms and payment at this Friday's meeting. Please keep in mind that we do not have many meetings in April due to the Holidays so please think about getting this in soon.
