We’re very excited about summer camp! Here’s more information to help get ready and reference during camp, in no particular order:
Drop off for summer camp is 11:00 – 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 11, 2017, at the medical clinic, north lot, at 50th and Underwood. Pickup is 11 am Saturday, June 18th, also at the medical clinic lot. Scouts should be wearing their field uniform (class A) for the troop photograph taken during check in, and their uniform is required for evening ceremonies during camp. They should also wear a swim suit under their uniform and have a towel handy because the swim check is also part of the check-in Sunday afternoon.
Family Night is Friday evening, June 16th. Troop 42 will have a shelter area reserved for meeting and dining. Please bring whatever picnic style or take-out dinner you want for your Scout and your family. Another option is eating in the dining hall which costs $7 per person (excluding your Scout). Please notify Mr. A by Wednesday for planning purposes:
- The number of people visiting and eating in the dining hall, or
- The number of people visiting and bringing dinner for your scout(s), or
- You are not attending Family Night.
If you cannot make it out to Family Night, please notify Mr. Anderson or Mr. Beiermann and your Scout can dine with others at the shelter, if they wish, instead of going by themselves to the dining hall.
Family night events include flag lowering ceremony at 5:45, supper at 6:30 pm, and a campfire show at 8:30 pm. You may attend any part or all of it. Scouts should plan on staying at camp Friday night after family goes home to help with cleanup before we depart Saturday morning. Scouts are encouraged to send unneeded gear home with families to speed things up Saturday morning.
Please have your Scout pack with you. Many Scouts use a plastic tote to store their gear and a pillow case or mesh bag for dirty laundry. Make sure your son’s name and troop number is marked on everything.
This is going to be a great year for camping!
