SUMMER CAMP PACKET

Important Information about Summer Camp Physicals and Medical Forms

A Class One Physical form will be needed for each scout going to Summer Camp.

Unlike past years, these now need to be filled out EVERY year for all scouts and we will try and make some headway on this by next year. In addition, Katrina needs to talk with each Camper parent about immunizations.

These have changed for 2001 in Maine, and we unfortunately started off with an out-of date plan. So, we need a Boy scout physical from each Camper by July 14th. If you did not get one last Monday from Mr. Lavoie, or were told you were all set, Pay attention to this change. You need to get one and turn it in to Katrina by July 14th.

Also, each Camper needs to be registered for Camp. Katrina has only have 2 boys registered as of last Monday. We have 2 meetings left and then you'll have to find her at Falmouth Hannaford or at her home on the lake before July 14th!

 Annual Medical Forms Download the Scout Medical Form (Page 1 is Class 1, Page 2 is Class 2), fill it out, bring it to the next meeting. (Here's another format of the form) An Adult Form is needed for any Adult intending to stay overnight at Summer Camp.

 

Activities for Camp

Katrina can get our forms in at Camp early, and since it's first come first served, we have an opportunity to get what you want. So please get your requests into Katrina. She has a Camp meeting at Hinds Sunday. Scott Leighton should also plan to attend if he wishes. More info from that meeting will be distributed.

More Notes from Katrina:

Anyone interested in the 50 mile canoe trip? It takes the place of camp for the week. See me.

Do we want to do more camp cooking????? I need your input ......

I'd like to thank Mr. Lavoie for taking the time to do physicals for us again this year. We appreciate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

 

 

 Boy Scout Summer Camp You should make plans NOW!

Watch for the "Scouting Family Newsletter" in the mail from Pine Tree Council during the month of November or December. It contains some useful information which you should review and save.

Boy Scout Troop 58 spends one week at Summer Camp each summer. This year they will again be going to Camp Hinds in Raymond from Sunday August 5 through Friday August 10, 2001. This experience has proven to be the best way for boys to advance through the early ranks in scouting.

It may seem early, but second-year Webelos Cub Scouts who will be crossing over into Boy Scouts should be considering the early payment plan for Summer Camp. To encourage early registration, there is a $20 discount for early payment by June 1. A $35 deposit is needed during February.

We feel that every boy should have an opportunity to attend Summer Camp. If there is any reason that payment for scout camp is a hardship, please speak with our treasurer or scoutmaster about our Camp Scholarships that are available specifically for this purpose.

Usually, about 25-30 scouts from Troop 58 attend Summer Camp, about 10 of which are brand new scouts (fifth-graders) who crosssed over in the past year, so rest assured that you will be in familiar company for this great experience!

Guys, here is some camp news. Please be thinking ahead if you plan on Camp this year. I will be Camp Coordinator again this year. I will start taking Camp deposits at any time starting Monday night. The date for camp is August 5th -10th. The cost is $190.00 for the week. $20.00 discount if you pay in full by June 1st.

The troop needs a deposit of $35.00 by March 1st. If by chance ANY of you get a physical this year please bring me in a copy even if you don't plan on Camp. We need to spruce up the Medical folder. I will be giving you more information on this upcoming later.

 

Below is a brief explanation of the canoe trip that will be going on while we are at camp, from Cathy Gosselin, Camp Director. Katrina

Hi Katrina,

So far, what I can tell you is the 50 miler is for Scouts 14 and older, at

least first class, with swimming, canoeing and first aid MB's. This will be

their program for the week. They will leave Monday am and return to camp on

Friday. There will be a survival aspect as well as a historical look at

the Songo Locks and other history of the Lakes Region. Routes are somewhat

weather dependent but the course travels Panther Pond, Sebago and Long Lakes

as well as rivers in-between, with campsites along the way. Open for 10 boys

a week and one volunteer leader going with Hinds staff. Hope this helps.

Cathy
