We would like the form at the August 4th meeting if possible so we can buy the tickets at the group discount rate.

Summer Camp – July 17-24

CampHorseshoeSummer Camp is almost here – below is the schedule for Troop 23 so there is no Scout left behind.

Items needed for Sunday – Personal Gear, Swimsuit (under uniform) and packed lunch. A towel should be packed in backpack or carry bag (do not put on trailer).

Schedule for Sunday – July 17th

If you have not yet turned in your Medical Forms, please bring copies with you.  The procedure for dispensing medications has changed this year.  Please see Melissa Pechin for the new form and medication collection.

8:30 a.m.-9:15 a.m.:  We will be loading the trailers with camp gear and personal gear.  We will be driving two (2) trucks into the site, please make sure your gear gets on one of the trucks.
9:15 a.m. -10:30 a.m.:  We will attend the Church service.  We want to make sure that we attend as a group and show our Chartered Organization how proud we are to be sponsored by them. We sit in the first two pews on the left side.
10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.:  We will finish loading the trucks and leave for camp.  (Please bring a packed lunch – we will be eating BEFORE we leave to go to camp.)

12:00 p.m.:   The Troop is LEAVING THE CHURCH AT 12:00 P.M. (Pictures may be taken at the Church before we leave).  We will be carpooling to camp – if you are planning to drive your Scout down individually, please NOTE:  today is not the time for visiting the camp – we are on a schedule and must be at locations at specific times. If you will not be attending the Church service, or will drive your son to camp (not leaving with the Troop from the Church at noon), please communicate this to Mr. Christensen.  There is a procedure for checking into Camp, and we need to know when everyone is arriving so all scouts go to health check, dining hall orientation and swim check.

1:00 p.m.:  We should arrive at Camp.  Please have your swimsuit on under your uniform or have it and a towel easily accessible for the swim test.
