Camp Notes

Due to the construction on Rt. 28, we will leave from the church parking lot at 7:30 am on Monday. Depending on how traffic effects the drive this time will be adjusted as needed.

Scouts are scheduled to be back at 4:00, but this is more like 4:30 and some days may be later depending on the activities of the day.

Scouts will get a camp T-shirt and a hat on Monday morning. They are to wear both articles every day of day camp. They will also receive a wrist band that they need to wear all week. These wrist bands are the type you get at an amusement park or field day. They need to wear the SAME wrist band ALL week.

Campers must wear closed toe shoes every day – no sandals or crocks

One day will be a creek walk (schedule to be announced on Monday) and scouts need to bring a pair of appropriate shoes to change into for this activity. Again, no open toed sandals or crocks for this activity.

Scouts will swim every day – please send scouts in their swim trunks and pack a change of clothes for them to change into after swimming.

Things to bring EVERY day Note: Label ALL Scouts’ belongings

  1. water bottle (there will be water stations for them to fill up their bottle

  2. lunch (every day except Friday were there will be a cook out)

  3. snacks

  4. backpack

  5. cheap poncho -camp is rain or shine (only lightning will cancel)

  6. sunscreen

  7. $ for trading post if you choose (Note: trading post only has candy and “junk” food).

  8. beach towel for after swimming

Scouts will swim, shoot bb guns and archery every day. On the days that you are attending, please consider that there is some waiting time at the bb range and we need to occupy the kids to keep them out of trouble. Anything you can bring or think of to assist in this is appreciated (binoculars, nature walk, games?)

Friday at 1:00 scouts will do a few skits followed by a cookout. Families are welcomed to attend.
