Boundary Waters Canoe Trip - July 2020

posted Sep 8, 2020, 11:26 AM by Scouts BSA Troop41sg   [ updated Sep 9, 2020, 9:22 AM ]

Troop 41 Scouts went on their high adventure trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area from July 11 - 19, 2020.  Setting off from Ely, Minnesota, they canoed and portaged nearly 50 miles, including 17-miles in one day!

Seth C. prepared a handy guide to "Plants to eat in the Boundary Waters".  (See the linked file below.)  The Scouts sampled blueberry, raspberry, and thimbleberry.  They even caught some fish and served a shoreline meal.  

Billy E. commented, "My highlight of our Northern Tier Trip was reaching our campsite on Wednesday after having our leaders capsize and having our other two canoes wash up on shore.  It was quite a relief to make it to our campsite after the terrible storms we had that day.  It was funny how the most experienced canoe was the one that capsized."

Fox River Canoe Trip

posted Jul 6, 2020, 7:01 AM by Scouts BSA Troop41sg   [ updated Jul 6, 2020, 7:02 AM ]

On June 27th, 2020, ten Boy Scouts with their families went canoeing down the Fox River for 7 miles. We met up at C&M canoe rental where we went on a bus to go to the start of the trip. When we were canoeing, we saw cattle eating by the river, an eagle, and an eagle’s nest, along with some cool rock formations which you wouldn’t even guess were along the Fox River. Surprisingly, we only had one canoe capsize because a tree branch took them down. Overall, it was a good trip to get us prepared for our Northern Tier and Boundary Waters high adventure, which is only a few days away.

4-22-20 Meet & Greet for New Scouts

posted Apr 20, 2020, 2:49 AM by Scouts BSA Troop41sg

Troop 41 is hosting a "Meet & Greet" WebEx Meeting this Wednesday April 22, 2020 at 7:00PM. We have been hosting Virtual Troop 41 Meetings over Webex recently, but our large group can make it difficult for new Scouts and parents to get to know us and ask questions. We thought it would be nice to have a chance to meet interested new Scouts in a small group setting over Webex with just a few leaders and scouts in a separate "Meet & Greet". For an invitation to the Webex Meeting, please contact and include the names of the parent, Scout, and Cub Scout Pack.

Virtual Troop Meetings

posted Apr 7, 2020, 5:03 AM by Scouts BSA Troop41sg

After suspending meetings for the second half of March due to COVID-19, we are forging a new path.  We’ll be holding Virtual Meetings beginning 4/7/2020 until the coast is clear! Look for the Webex Invite in your email box. 

Some weeks we’ll start our virtual Troop Meetings with the whole Troop together.  Then we’ll split off and go to one of the Rank Meetings depending on our rank: Scout, Tenderfoot, 2nd Class, 1st Class, Star, or Life.

The Rank Meetings will focus on meeting rank requirements and discussing Scout ideas and upcoming events.  The Rank Meeting will close with our usual closing circle.

New Scouts and Crossover Scouts are welcome to join us! Please email us with the parent's name, Scout's name, current Pack or Troop number, and your email address to

Troop 41 Activities Suspended 3/15/20 - 4/6/20

posted Mar 15, 2020, 9:34 PM by Scouts BSA Troop41sg   [ updated Mar 17, 2020, 10:49 AM ]

After serious consideration of the current events and after receiving direction from Three Fires Council, Troop 41 is suspending all face-to-face troop activities until April 6, 2020.  We are tentatively planning to have our next meeting on April 7, 2020 at the Sugar Grove Community Building at 7:00 P.M. We hope to resume our Scouting activities soon.  Please stay tuned. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

This would also be a perfect time to work on finishing up the paperwork requirements on any Merit Badges that you haven’t completed yet.  The Family Life & Personal Management Merit Badges would be excellent choices.  These are Eagle Scout required badges and need much coordination and time with the family.  You will be amazed at how much you can learn just from your own family.
