Summer Camp 2018 – sign up is now open through 3/21


Troop 39 leadership strongly encourage all scouts in the troop to make the most of every Summer Camp opportunity and now is the time to sign up your scouts for Summer Camp 2018.   Please do so as soon as possible.   

Summer Camp offers an exciting opportunity to learn new skills and earn many Merit Badges that are key to advancement from First Class Scout to Eagle.

For those new to the troop, the Summer Camp programme offers a fantastic opportunity for your scout to establish a very firm foundation on his advancement.  He will have the opportunity to learn new skills and many of the Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class requirements will be covered as well as requirements for FIrst Aid Merit Badge.  Summer Camp is also be a great opportunity to make friends in the troop and others from the council and get to know the wonderful Camp Durant.

Troop 39 wants every scout in the troop to have the opportunity to attend Summer Camp.  If any hardships apply, please discuss confidentiality with John Christy, Sammy or Glyn Tomkins.  

Yours in Scouting,

Glyn Tomkins
Assistant Scoutmaster
