Troop 141, Robbinsdale, Minnesota
Elim Lutheran Church
3978 West Broadway
Boy Scouting is designed to take place outdoors. It is in the outdoor setting that Scouts share responsibilities and learn to live with one another. In the outdoors the skills and activities practiced at troop meetings come alive with purpose. Being close to nature helps Boy Scouts gain an appreciation for the beauty of the world around us. The outdoors is the laboratory in which Boy Scouts learn ecology and practice conservation of nature's resources.
Boy Scouting provides a series of surmountable obstacles and steps in overcoming them through the patrol method. The Boy Scout plans his advancement and progresses at his own pace as he meets each challenge. The Boy Scout is rewarded for each achievement, which helps him gain self-confidence. The steps in the advancement system help a Boy Scout grow in self-reliance and in the ability to help others.
Most Boy Scouts will participate in a weekly troop meeting, a monthly weekend campout and a weeklong camping trip at Many Point Scout Camp in July. Troop 141 camps each month of the School year with a day event in December.
Weekly Troop meetings end with a game of dodge ball or a game of lightning. The boys look forward to the last 20 minutes knowing that they will have a fun time.
141 camps at most Council camps including Rum River, Stearns, Many Point, Fred C. Andersen, Phillippo, and Kiwanis along with several State and County parks.
Cabins are used for winter months, although boys are encouraged to sleep outside when weather permits. Troop equipment includes 4-man Eureka Timberline tents. Camp out activities includes advancement, service projects, exploring, shooting sports, free time and reflection time.

Pumpkin Train - Dresser, WI
Saturday, October 19th
This Saturday, we will once again make our way to Dresser, WI to help with the Minnesota Transportation Museum's Pumpkin Express, a train that runs from Osceola, WI to family festivities in Dresser, WI. It's an absolute blast to help with, and Scouts receive about 6 service hours for participating. Scouts are encourage to ride the train to and from Osceola once, just for the experience of riding on a cool old train.
The details: We leave Elim at 8:00 a.m. Be there at 7:45. We return at roughly 5:00 p.m.
You may bring lunch, but there should be soup available for volunteers. You may also bring some spending money if you'd like to purchase any snacks.
Dress in layers that you can shed, as the current forecast calls for a high in the low 60s with plenty of sunshine. Bring sunscreen and a bottle of water as well.
