Scoutmaster's Minute
Jim Horvath

Summer Camp is almost here. It is one of the best Scouting activities of the year! Here are the specifics for arriving on Sunday, July 19:

Scouts are to be at the Concord Campsite at 1:00 pm Sunday, in your clean, full uniform. You may select your tent and set up your gear,two Scouts per tent. We recommend bringing your gear in a footlocker or a plastic tub with a lid to protect it from the weather. A cot is a good idea too, but the tents are on wooden platforms and you can use your ground pad. Mr. Horvath reserves the first tent for his gear.

A parent will be at the Campsite to receive any medicines that will be taken at Summer Camp and insure that the medicines are listed on the BSA Medical forms. Remember, all prescriptions must be in the original container with the pharmacy label intact. Over the counter medicines likewise should be in the original package and must not be beyond the expiration date. Put all medicines in a ziplock bag with your name on it. Inhalers and epipens should be with the Scout at all times.

Scouts who did not take the BSA Swim Test with the Troop in May will take the swim test Sunday afternoon. Scout are encouraged to bring a padlock for the lockers at the pool. Padlocks are sold at the Trading Post for $5.

Eat a good lunch before coming to camp, dinner is at 6:00 pm! Adults are still needed to help at camp. Sign up at the Troop meetings.

Scouts who will be leaving camp for any reason during the week must have the camper release information on the Medical Form. Scouts and parents must sign in and sign out at the Administration Building, each time they arrive or leave. More information in July Newsletter.
