Summer Camp

Council has accelerated the payment of summer camp this year. The deadline for full payment is now May 2.

After May 2, a late payment fee of $30 is assessed.

The cost for this year = $320 per Scout. (this is an increase of $20 from last year)

This includes:
-8 days and 7 nights
-all food
-all camping fees
-a terrific program
-and a T-shirt

Scouting families who send more than one Scout to the same program at the same time will receive $25.00 off the second Scout and $25.00 off each additional Scout.

Please budget for this program.

There is some campership funds available through the Council. The forms and procedures are not yet published. We will get them to you as soon as they are known.

NO Scout should feel they cannot go to camp for the sole reason they do not have funds.

Please contact Mr G. if you need financial help.

Payments are ALWAYS OK…. Start making them now…. If you can make payments but not the full amount by May 2, contact Mr G to make arrangements.

Please —– start thinking and planning for this NOW…..

Thanks
Mr J

Service Hours Opportunity/ Do a Good Turn Daily

The Larson PTO is having their annual Red Cross blood drive at the Larson Middle School, Troy, MI on Monday January 20th from 1:00 – 6:45.

The students have the day off due to the MLK Holiday.

The Red Cross is looking for 3 student volunteers to assist at the beginning of the blood drive from 12:45-3:00.

This would be a great service opportunity especially for those who need hours. We assume the duties will not be working with the blood but would be more administrative type help.

Yours in Scouting,

Mr. G
