Troop 115 has been active during the pandemic doing safe service projects, including a recent service day at Ft. Lowell park with the Friends of Fort Lowell park.

On Jan 22 and 23, 7 Scouts BSA leaders completed the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course and 2 Cub leaders completed the Basis Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) course. Both courses were conducted at Double V Scout ranch by a team of volunteer trainers from the Sky Islands District. The IOLS course is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistants to be fully trained. All Cub Packs that conduct camping outings are required to have one adult present who has completed the BALOO course. Both courses will taught again later this year, probably in late summer or early fall. Exact time and place will be published in the Frontiersman.
