Summer Camp 2014 – It’s time to pick your electives

​​Parents – your attention to this is important – It’s time to make commitments to Summer Camp!

Summer camp 2014 is at Camp Durant. We depart on July 6 and return on July 12th.

Sammy is handling the money side of Summer Camp. Mr Tomkins is handling the programme.


The base cost for this camp is $265. Please contact Sammy if you need assistance covering the costs of this camp. Fees may be paid by check payable to Troop 39 or from the scout’s account balance.

There may be additional costs based on your scout’s electives which are paid at camp.  See the Leader’s Guide or the Session Schedule for details of those electives requiring additional costs.  (Note the Leaders’ guide file name indicates 2013 but the content is 2014).

Here is what you need to do – no later than April 23rd

Please share this page with your scout and work with them on their electives.  If you need advice, please email or call Mr Tomkins.

Please complete the online form below on or before April 23rd.  If you can not use the online form, simply write down the requeted information legibly on paper and bring it to Mr Tomkins.

We would like a response from every scout even if they are not planning to attend summer camp.  It’s important that we know whether your scout is planning to attend and what their electives are by April 23rd – a delay may mean that your scout does not get to take their preferred electives.


Please see the following documents:

1. The Leader’s Guide which outlines all of the programmes offered at Durant.

2. The daily (Monday-Thursday) Session Schedule.

Scouts who are rank Tenderfoot or below must elect to take either the morning or the afternoon trailblazer programme – not both. They can choose other scheduled activities such as Merit Badges for the other part of the day.

Scouts who are Second Class are recommended not to take the trailblazer programme but may do so after they have first discussed this with Sammy or Mr Tomkins.

Scouts First class and higher should elect to take merit badges.

Scouts may leave only one hour free in the day.  Scouts with a sash full of merit badges (and who are experienced negotiators) may leave more than one hour free however this needs to be first agreed by Mr Tomkins.

Yours in Scouting
Glyn Tomkins
Assistant Scoutmaster
Troop 39
