Swim Test / Swimming Merit Badge Completion June 11th

Posted on May 30 2016 - 1:25pm

ALL Scouts will swim test for Summer Camp.

Scouts in the BEAR PATROL that attended Summer camp last year and did not complete the Swimming Merit Badge will do that at this time.  These Scouts need to bring a pair of blue jeans and a long sleeved shirt for completion.

Address is 7105 Pleasant Grove Road.  The house is back in the woods but the address is marked at the road.  There is a very wide gravel drive that leads back to the house. 

Any Scout not in attendance on this day will have to swim test upon arrival at Summer Camp. 

Summer Camp Info

Posted on May 30 2016 - 1:23pm
Below please find some crucial information regarding summer camp.  We are leaving in 4 weeks so please take a minute to check out the mandatory items below:
Mr. Jim has advised that there are only 2 boys in the Troop that have valid Health Forms for camp.  I have attached a blank health form for your convenience.  ALL participants (youth and adult) must have a valid health form in order to attend camp (this includes Parts A and both sides of B).  In addition, ALL participants (youth and adult) that stay MORE THAN 72 HOURS (which is just about everyone) must have Part C filled out by a physician.  If you do not have a primary care physician, you can visit an urgent care or Minute Clinic to have this taken care of.  ALL participants must have a Tetanus shot date listed on the form that is less than 10 years prior to the date of camp.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Jim or Malinda.
Cracker Barrel, Fuel and Tshirt Fees are due.  $25 is due for Cracker Barrel and Fuel with an additional $7.50 per tshirt.  At least one tshirt has been ordered for each person attending camp - if you ordered more than one, please send in the appropriate amount. In summary - if you only ordered one tshirt, your total camp fees are $32.50.  We will be having a Troop Feast of BBQ and fixins on Friday night.  This fee is included in the Cracker Barrel fee for those attending camp, but if you are a parent and wish to come up for the feast and final campfire on Friday, please send in $7.00 for your dinner. 
For planning purposes, I have included below the list of days that Camp Grimes is celebrating this year.  Our Troop Tshirt will be the Camp Tshirt we have designed especially for camp.  Please plan to participate in every day as this helps our quest for the Spirit Stick. Between now and time for camp, we will be discussing with the boys other items needed for camp. 
Monday Tacky Day 
Tuesday College/Sports Team Day 
Wednesday Hawaiian Day/Sunglasses day 
Thursday Troop T-shirt Day 
Friday Patriotic Day
The boys were given lists of their merit badges 2 weeks ago.  Please check in with them and make sure they are completing any prerequisites so that badges can be completed at camp.

Beaver Days - May 20-22

Posted on May 15 2016 - 8:14pm

The entire Troop will be participating in Beaver Days this year (recently it has been an Order of the Arrow event only).  We will be traveling to Camp Grimes to help set the camp up for the summer (our normal 6:00 PM Friday departure).  Our troop has been assigned removing old wood from behind the Long Hunter Building and Entrance Sign Clean up out at the road.  OA scouts and Troop members will be camping and working together.  Cost is $25 for the weekend (includes food and gas).  Boys will need to bring work gloves for moving the wood if they have them. More information will be distributed this week, but the $25 is due Tuesday, May 17th.  Permission slip is attached so that you can send it Tuesday.
