Troop 1705 Summer Camp Update

Scouts of Troop 1705 we have less than 4 weeks before we leave for summer camp at Lost Lake Scout Reservation on Saturday, July 14, 2012. It is going to be an awesome adventure! Be prepared to have a great time!

The pre-camp agenda for Saturday, July 14 will be as follows:

9:00 am ALL scouts attending summer camp, whether you are driving up separately or carpooling with the
troop, need to report (in full class A uniform) to the Wass Elementary parking lot for a pre-camp check-in.

The check-in will include:

For Scouts:
1) Check-in with Scoutmaster for uniform inspection

2) Merit Badge Pre-req check

3) Tent Confirmation (including all tent parts)

4) Load personal gear and tents into troop trailer

For Parents:
1) Medical Form recheck

2) Turn in medication in original containers in zip lock bag labeled with scout name

3) Receive parent information sheet

10:30 Once all scouts have checked-in the scouts driving up separately will meet the troop at camp by 2:30 pm. Those scouts car pooling with the troop will proceed from Wass towards Lost Lake Scout Reservation. The troop will be stopping at a rest area in Clare to eat lunch, Please bring your own bag lunch and drink to eat at the rest area.

2:30 Arrive at Lost Lake Scout Reservation. Meet troop in the parking lot at the front of camp. Please DO NOT go to our camp site before the rest of the troop arrives. We are not able to check in before 2:30 and we must check-in as a unit. The Senior Patrol Leader will let the scouts know when they can proceed to the camp site to set up.

Once at the camp site the scouts will set up the two troop dining flies, followed by a second check-in at camp including the setting up of personal tents.
