Summer Camp
June 26 - July 2, 2016

PARENTS: To participate in Summer Camp, scouts must have a Class C (the doctor signed part) of the medical form signed within 12 months of camp. For a Class C form to qualify, it must have been signed (AND DATED BY THE DOCTOR) after June 1, 2015. Please when you get the doctor to sign, the date must be the date they reviewed/signed the form not the examination date. This has been a problem in the past with doctors only writing the date of the last exam rather than the date they reviewed/signed the form.

There will be a list of what is missing from Scouts (health forms, fees, etc) at the June 14 and 21 Troop meetings. Check-in with Boni or Liz to turn things in.

Summer Camp Trailer Pack
June 25, 2016 - 12 pm

We’re packing the trailer (or trailers) the day before summer camp. Bring all your gear packed and ready to load. The SPL and PLC will be doing a bag-check. Items not needed at camp will be send home with you and you’ll get a list of things you might be missing.

If you can’t make the trailer pack, please arrange with your Patrol Leader and Mr. Landquist to get your gear checked and loaded ahead of time.
