We have finalized the cost for the travel, lodging and meals on the road the
cost to be $130 per attendee. This payment will be due the meeting prior to
summer camp departure. This cost will cover the fuel charge, meals on the
way to camp and back. Departure will be June 10th, they will need a sack
breakfast or will need to have eaten prior to departure. All other meals
will be provided.
Scouts should have a foot locker packed with their clothes and items for
camp, and a backpack with their toiletry kit, one day’s worth of clothing
and any items they would like in the vehicle. The should also have their
sleeping bag and a pillow separate from their footlocker, all other items
will be in their footlocker. They will not be able to get to their
footlocker until we arrive at camp. The backpack can double for carrying
items at camp. It is recommended that each scout carry a rain jacket, water
bottle, scout book and any other materials they may need for class on a
The temperature will be high 70’s during the day and high 50’s at night, so
pack clothes suitable for the weather. We recommend that the scout bring a
footlocker for all gear, except what they will be carrying in the vehicle.
(Google Contigo storage footlocker for an idea of what this looks like and
the size, they are available at Walmart and Academy.) We will generally
load up the footlockers in the trailer one to three days prior to departure
for camp, so we do not have to do this the morning of departure.
Please put his name on anything that you want to come back home! If there
is something without his name and it is lost, (or accidental picked up by
another scout) there is no way to get it back to him!
No cell phones in camp please, camp will not likely have any service. They
can take electronics for the ride there, but they do not leave the vehicle.
In addition, we will not be responsible for missing items; that is why we do
not recommend taking them. Think about what you send to camp. Grandpa’s
scout knife is awesome, but not if it is lost at camp!
Any medications must be given to our medical “officer”. Camp does not
permit scout to have any over the counter or prescription medicines. All
money for your scout should be placed in an envelope with his name and given
to our money “officer”. An adult will dispense it to the scout as they
request. We do not want scouts to have money on their person unless they
are using it for their merit badge classes or they know they are going to go
to the camp’s scout store. They are welcome to shop and buy things, we just
don’t want them to have all their money in one places, especially if that
place is lost.
There are a few families that will be in the area, so do be aware that
Wednesday night is family night. The camp has mountain music and
activities out on the lawn. All parents and family members are invited to
camp for a great time, and to enjoy fellowship with their scouts. Dinner for
guests cost $5, tickets can be purchased in the trading post. Chapel is held
at 8:30PM. Guests are encouraged to stay for a flag retirement ceremony
during the evening campfire immediately following Vespers. If you have
family that is going to visit, please let Jaff Dadd know before the troop
leaves for camp.
