Summer Camp Signup

Troop Gateway & BellI know many of you are busy making plans for April vacation, but believe it or not it’s time to start thinking about Summer Camp as well!

This year Troop 591 will be attending camp at Camp Yawgoog in Rockville, RI.  For those of you new to the Troop, we last attended Camp Yawgoog in 2007 and walked away with 2 prestigious awards – Edwin’s Troop of the Week given for Troop Spirit and participation and the J. Harold Williams Award for an individual Scout exhibiting true Scout Spirit.  We had a blast and made lots of new friends and hope you’ll be able to join us this year for more fun, surprises and (maybe) a ketchup bottle or two.Formation Drill

Troop week will run from Sunday, July 26 through Sunday, August 2 and while we’ve reserved a spot for the Troop, we need to start getting the Scouts registered.  If you’re going to be joining us this year, we will be looking for a “show of hands” at this Wednesday’s meeting and we’ll need a check for $25 to hold your spot at the April 29th meeting.  (Please make checks payable to Troop 591)  The full camp fees this year are $350/Scout for the week.

If you are a parent and would like to help out as an adult leader at camp – either for the full week or part of the week – we would love to have you on board.  Please see Mr. Jensen or Mr. Lauer for details.

We will be scheduling an informational meeting in May, but you can start planning your summer week by looking over the Program Brochure and Merit Badge Guide for 2009 which we’ve posted on our website.
