Summer Camp Merit Badges

Posted on Mar 29 2015 - 4:49am

Please see the attached listing of the Merit Badges that will be offered at this years summer camp. I want to get the list into the Camp by the end of the upcoming week as to secure our spots in the classes. Parents please sit down with your scouts this weekend and help them choose the ones they would like to participate in. Have the boys call there friends and discuss which ones they want to attend. I will be at the meeting on Monday and will be taking that information and also helping with any questions that you and the boys might have. I know the boys want to do these classes together that is why I want them to start thinking about it now and have an answer by the end of the week. I also have a map of the site so we can plan out the walking distances for the classes as well. Again lets get the boys thinking about this now so we can get our names in.

Got questions... contact Assistant Scoutmaster Joe Menton by email at jmenton5@yahoo.com

What is the best method of contact for you?

Posted on Mar 29 2015 - 4:48am

In order to better communicate to each Scout and family member, we have created this form to help us in better serving you.  We ask each Scout and/or adult from each family to fill out this form.  This is simply as a simple way for the Webmasters, PLC, ASM's, Committee and Mr. Karn to find out how we can best contact you during an event. We ask you complete this form by April 1st.
