Last Minute Camp Notes

Parents and Scouts,

A couple of last minute notes for Camp …

A reminder that any medications must be handed over to the Scoutmaster when you check your son in for camp.  Medications should be in a 1-quart Ziploc bag with the Scout’s name printed clearly on the bag.  Place the medication along with dosage instructions in the bag.  Medication should be in the original container so that the medication is clearly identifiable.

This rule applies to both prescription and over-the-counter medications such as allergy tablets or pain relievers.  With the exception of emergency medications such as asthma inhalers or Epipens, Scouts are not allowed to self-medicate.  If your son is carrying emergency meds, please notify the Scoutmaster and provide dosing instructions upon arrival.

Please plan on arriving at the Sandy Beach parking lot between 1:30 and 2:00.  Checkin begins officially at 3:30 and Troops are told to expect not to be allowed into the sites until 5:30.  As we’ve found in years past, it is a lot easier to get there early than to arrive with the rest of the masses between 3:00 and 5:00.

We will meet on the Sandy Beach field and have soda and snacks available until we can move gear up to camp.  As this is the first week, we can probably expect to be allowed up to the site early.  Parents who may need to leave before we get into the site can shift their son’s gear to one of the leader’s vehicles for the move to the campsite.

Bring plenty of Scout Spirit along with bug spray and sunscreen!!

We’ll see you at camp!
