    Hello From Camp 


    Hello from camp!  Boys are off for their 2nd full day – starting off a bit rainy but its a light rain.  Had a pretty good wind storm blow through last night.  But mostly wind and a little rain.  Everyone is doing great and having lots of fun.  they are getting to try new stuff and experience new things.

    Camp is spread out a bit more than most camps, so thanks to all my leaders and the spouses of the leaders for letting them come to camp and help!  I wouldn’t be able to do it without them.

    July Scrips 

    Funny Back to School Quotes - Bing Images

    Find order form here———————->July Scrips


    Yep, you guessed it!  I was checking the calendar this morning, and this is the back to school Scrip order!  Some of you may be crying or some of you may be cheering.  No matter which camp you are in this month is very important.  If you have to buy all of those supplies you may as well put some money in you pocketbook as well.  Remember summer camp 2015 is only 11 short months away.  He he!

    Remember is you still have a trip planned, get your Scrip cards to carry along.

    I will keep this short so you can get back to the pool, or looking at pics of the pool (or beach) from your cubicle.  Orders will be due this Thursday 7/10 and ready for pickup on 7/17.  Please drop your order off at my house, 9900 Tesson Ferry Rd, on 7/10.  I will leave an envelope clipped to my mailbox, you may drop in there.

    Have a great day! Hope our kiddos and leaders have a great time at camp!

    Summer Camp Reminders 


    Just a few reminders about this weekend’s schedule and Summer Camp.

    Trailer Loading – We will load the trailer Saturday the 5th of  July.  Time between 9:30 & 11am.  Everyone must bring their gear Saturday to pack into the trailer.  We want to be able to meet Sunday, jump into cars and go.  There will not be extra space for gear in the vehicles .  You will also be turning in any medications that your Scout will need for the week as well as any money if you want us to hand it out for you.  **ANY OUTSTANDING MEDICAL FORMS ALSO MUST BE TURNED IN OR YOU CAN’T GO TO CAMP**


    Travel notes:   Sunday we will leave the admin building at 8am – so be there ready to go at 7:45am.   We are asking that you bring your Scout with a sack lunch to eat on the way.   (Saturday the 12th, we should be home around lunch time.)


    While traveling, we always wear CLASS A Uniforms with proper shorts (no gym shorts!).  We will also be wearing our Class A for special campfire events and evening dinners.


    MONEY:   There is a Trading Post at camp where Scouts can buy lots of stuff.  Typically a Scout might spend $40ish dollars.  If you would like, you can put money in a separate envelope and give to us to dispense when needed.  DON’T FORGET ANY MONEY NEEDED FOR FEE’S REQUIRED FOR SOME MERIT BADGES.


    OA Members – Remember to bring  your Sash and complete uniform.


    MERIT BADGES:   Please have your Scout go to www. Meritbadge.org and print out work sheets for each badge they are taking.  Please make sure they complete any pre-requisites before camp and get it filled out on the worksheet.  I hate for a Scout to go to camp and not complete a badge.  Have them keep all their stuff in a folder with some extra paper and pen or pencil.


    MAIL:  Scouts love to get mail or packages from home during camp.  You need to think about sending them now.   I would suggest , if you are intending to mail several packages, you can mail them all on the same day and number them 1, 2, …  That way when I collect and hand out the mail, I will give them out each day in order.
