Register Now for the Annual Canoeing Camp-out - Village Creek Start Park

Posted on Apr 19 2014 - 1:39pm

Please register now and complete the Parent Activity Consent Form for our annual canoeing campout at Village Creek State Park, 1,090 heavily forested acres, is located in the Hardin County community of Lumberton, 10 miles north of Beaumont.  Village Creek State Park takes its name from Village Creek, a free flowing stream that rises near the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation and meanders in a southeasterly direction 69 miles to a junction with the Neches River.  Village Creek is an extremely popular flat water, canoe float stream in what remains as the heart and soul of the Old Texas Big Thicket.  The park is a forest full of cypress swamps; water tupelo, river birch, mayhaw and yaupon trees; and baygalls and blackwater sloughs in the floodplain of the Neches River. Wildlife is also abundant and includes snapping turtles, white-tailed deer, diamondback water snakes, opossums, spring peepers, crickets, bull frogs and nine-banded armadillos. Birding enthusiasts will enjoy rain-loving wood ducks, egrets and herons, just to name a few from over 200 species of birds native to the Big Thicket. There is also fishing in Village Creek, with catfish, bass, perch and panfish.

Reminder: Expense Reimbursement Policy

Adult leaders and Scouts who incur expenses on behalf of the troop may apply to the Treasurer for reimbursment.  If there are any questions regarding whether or not a particular expenditure is reasonable and appropriate, please check with the Committee Chairman, Scoutmaster, or Treasurer before incurring the expense.  Use this form to request reimbursement.  You may staple or tape the receipts to the form.  If no receipt is available, please be sure to include a detailed description of the expenditure.  In order to prevent the appearance of any impropriety, all reimbursements must be approved by the Committee Chairman before the Treasurer can issue the payment.
