1)    Don't forget that the swim test for BSA summer camp is this
Sunday!

 

2)    Swim Test: Mark your calendars for May 9th @ 1:00 for the summer
camp swim check the YMCA; Camp Cherokee can't handle all of the swim
checks on Sunday. In the event you cannot attend our swim test at the
YMCA, please be prepared to escort your son for the one mile walk to the
waterfront that Sunday for his swim test.

 

3)    Also, I'm taking $230.00 checks (made payable to Troop 17) now for
summer camp, no need to wait until June 1st.

It's time to be thinking about summer camp, several of you should have
received a letter in the mail this week, but if you didn't and your
scout plans to attend summer camp, please download the two attachments
and let me know if your son plans to attend so we can have an accurate
count.

 

Dates: Week 3:  July 4 - July 10

 

Camp Cherokee Info:

Cost:  $230.00 (t-shirts are included this year).  All checks should be
made to Troop 17.  Those checks may be turned in at any time prior to
June 1, 2010 (Court-of-Honor).  All payments must be made by this time. 

 

Medical Forms: A medical form (enclosed) is required for both scouts and
adults, who plan to attend camp and this form will be good for 12 months
of activities. These forms are due before we depart to camp, your son
will be sent home if he doesn't have a  current medical form. Please
send them to me as soon as they are complete.

 

Merit Badges: I will be meeting with each of your boys to discuss which
merit badges that he should be taking, we make sure that each scout
takes advantage of the Eagle required merit badges that are offered at
Cherokee.

 

Swim Test: Mark your calendars for May 9th @ 1:00 for the summer camp
swim check the YMCA; Camp Cherokee can't handle all of the swim checks
on Sunday. In the event you cannot attend our swim test at the YMCA,
please be prepared to escort your son for the one mile walk to the
waterfront that Sunday for his swim test.

 

Attention Fathers: Old North State Council Policy requires that two
adults be in Camp at all times with each unit.  It appears that we will
have close to 20+ Scouts going to Camp this year.  We will need at least
two adults in Camp with me at all times this summer, BSA has a policy of
"Two deep leadership".  Please help us with your volunteer time for a
full day/night as your schedule allows during the week.

 

Departure: We will depart from the Garrison-Joyner Scout Hut at 2:00 pm
on Sunday, July 4th, 2010.  Please arrive at 1:30 pm, as we will need
some time to pack before we depart.  Please have your Scout in "Class A"
uniform packed, fed and ready to go at that time.  We will need some
volunteers to help transport us to camp on Sunday.  A large suitcase,
footlocker or duffel bag is appropriate for camp.  

 

What to pack: A suggested summer camp packing list can be found on our
website at www.ScoutTroop17.org (click on the Camping tab) NO BUG SPRAY,
MATCHES OR LIGHTERS!!  The Scoutmaster will supply as needed.

 


Saturday Check-Out: We will be checking out of Camp on Saturday morning,
July 10, 2010 - Plan to arrive between 8:30-9:00.  Our scouts will not
be dismissed until the campsite and individual tents have been inspected
and released by the staff and scoutmaster. NO EXCEPTIONS!  All Scouts
should have transportation back to town on Saturday.


 

Should you have any questions, please let me know.
