7/1/13 Scout Summer Camp
This year the Troop is planning on attending Goshen Scout Reservation in Goshen VA. All scouts wishing to attend must have their Troop 349 dues paid in full, have a completed health form, and have submitted their BSA enrollment form.
Older Scout Activities – Merit Badges: Scheduling for the merit badges is completed online and the troop will submit your online registration. All merit badge enrollment is on a first-come, first serve basis. Please sit down with your scout soonest and review his options. We would like a first choice and second choice for each time frame NO LATER THAN APRIL 20. Older scouts should consider a Scoutcraft merit badge like Camping or Cooking, or another option such as BSA Lifeguard or Day Trek. The scouts should be busy all day. If your scout opts not to pursue activities (and plans to lounge around the camp site)….. well, we’ll likely put him to work.
First Year Scouts: We plan to schedule First Year Campers to move as a group between activities. We recommend that the first year scouts focus on the Swimming merit badge, another merit badge to be determined (possibly Camping, Cooking, or Communications) and First Aid/Outdoor Skill programs. Please notify Mr Englander as soon as possible if, in your opinion, your scout is a non-swimmer or weak swimmer so we can work on another merit badge option.
NoticeDietary Restrictions: Does your scout have any dietary restrictions? Please let us know via email.
If you have any questions, please contact Jeff, Wally, or Jim Thanks
