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 2019. 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. They 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 and Swimming 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.
Summer camp leaders
The leaders coordinating the event who are your primary contacts for Summer Camp are:
- Creighton Alexander (boys)
- Kelly Keadey (girls)
We also have to have completed medical forms (Parts A, B and C (part C requires a physician’s signature) as well as a photocopy of medical insurance membership cards. The troop will be having medicals at a soon to be scheduled meeting. Look out for the email on this! For those new to the troop, the troop has a group of volunteer male and female doctors who come to troop night to do the medicals. You can use them or you can take your scout to your own physician. All completed paperwork is due to:
- Marie Rape (boys)
- Lynn Tomkins (girls)
Without this paperwork, your scout will not go to camp (it is that simple!) and Marie and Lynn will be reminding you of this. Please don’t make them remind you more than once!
