Summer Camp 2018

Troop 1396 will be going to summer camp Sunday, June 24 to Saturday, June 30.  We will be camping at Goshen Scout Reservation which is located in the Allegheny Mountains in southwestern Virginia.  It is approximately 30 minutes from Lexington, Va. 

 Early bird registration will be due by Tuesday, April 3.  Scouts registration fee will be $360 and adults registration fee is $225.  Permission Slips and merit badge signups to follow.

 Attached are the following:

1.      Olmsted Program Schedule - This is a day-by-day schedule of all the merit badges offered (pre-req and additional fees schedule will be coming out soon)  In addition to the merit badge classes on the schedule there is the ATV program for Scouts 14 and up (This program has an additional fee and will be included on the pre-req form)

2.      Camp Olmsted Map - Please refer to the map when selecting merit badges.  Try to schedule merit badges close to one another to avoid having to go from one side of the camp to the other.  Please see Camp master Sue Straka if you have any questions as to where areas are.

3.      BSA Medical Form with NCAC Additional Page - All medical forms (parts AB & C) must be up-to-date.  NCAC also requires a special page, page 4 to also be completed.  All completed medical forms including page 4 must be completed by June 5.  Please plan accordingly if you need to make a physicians appointment.

4.      Boy Scout Equipment List - This is a suggested list and as we get closer to summer camp we will expand upon the list.

5.      2018 Dining Hall Menu - This is the tentative menu (from past experience they stick close to it).  As we get closer to summer camp we will be asking about special dietary needs.  Goshen has been very accommodating in the past and I do not foresee any issues this year.

6.      2018 Olmsted Leaders’ and Parents’ Guide - This will give you a overview of the camp and may help answer any questions you have.  If something is not in there please see Camp Master Sue Straka, she has attended Camp Olmsted in the past.
