Subject: Scout Family Night is July 8


Hi everyone! Family night for summer camp will be Thursday night (July
8). Families are invited to arrive anytime after 5:30 pm. Please be
there by 6:00 pm.  The scouts will have a flag ceremony at the campsite
and then we will have dinner.  The Campfire will begin with Retreat at
7:45pm by the dining hall and will conclude by 9:30pm. For the parents
of first time Boy Scouts, the order of the evening is as such:  After
dinner, they will have a flag ceremony and will shoot the cannon. Then
everyone goes to the amphitheater for the campfire and some brief
entertainment provided by the counselors. There will also be  a
"tapping" ceremony for Order of the Arrow. 

We will have Hursey's Bar-B-Q again this year for our annual Troop 17
dinner. The cost is $8.50 per person and includes barbeque, chicken,
beans, slaw, hushpuppies, and tea. I will need parents to volunteer to
bring coolers with ice, soft drinks and desserts, so please let me know
what you can bring.  Please email me at tlander@xxxxxxxxxxxx or call me
at 266-5365 by July 5 to let me know the number of family members
(including your scout) that will be attending, and I will collect money
either on Sunday when they depart for camp or Thursday evening at camp.


We are in the Chippewa camp site again this year. It is located in the
curve of "Water Tank" road immediately adjacent to Boy Scout Camp Road.
Please park on the side of the road and look for our scouts who will
direct you to the campsite. Please remember to bring camp chairs and
your rain gear just in case!!!   Take a flashlight, because it will be
dark when you head back to the campsite!  Also, please no flip-flops or
open toed shoes for safety reasons.


Looking forward to seeing everyone.


Gade Lander
