Summer Camp Parents Meeting

posted Mar 31, 2011, 11:07 AM by Scoutmaster 1717

At the March 31
st meeting representatives from Council will be at our meeting to present on the summer camp opportunities being offered. We are looking at a week long resident camp, most likely to take place at Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation in Stanhope, NJ.

The early bird fee if paid/post marked by April 30th is $345, after April 30th it is $375.  All graduating Webelos pay $345, regardless of April 30th.

The weeks available include:

Sun-Sat 7/3-7/9        Sun-Sat 7/10-7/16        Sun-Sat 7/17-7/23        Sun-Sat 7/24-7/30        Sun-Sat 7/31-8/6

Our goal is to find out what week is best for the majority of the Scouts so we can attend as a group.  Please let me know if you have any conflicts with any of the weeks available and what the likelihood is of your son attending.  Additionally we need to provide an additional leader (besides myself) to be there at camp for the week so if you are interested in filling one of the leader positions please let me know.  I would suggest that parents attend they 31st so that the council can answer any questions/concerns you have directly.
