Adult Leaders Needed at Summer Camp

Troop Gateway & BellWouldn’t you just love an all-expenses-paid vacation in a pastoral setting, close to the water, surrounded by nature  … and 700 of your son’s closest friends?

If this sounds like your idea of a dream vacation, the Troop has several openings for adult leaders this summer during Troop Week at Yawgoog Scout Reservation.

We rely on the adult leaders to keep the Troop running and manage the boys during non-program times in camp.  With the BSA “2-deep” policies for adult contact with youth in force, this really requires a minimum of 4 adults in camp at all times.  This allows 2 adults to monitor the campsite, while another 2 adults are free for tasks around camp or available in case of emergency.

The Troop simply cannot attend camp without the support of volunteer adult leaders like you!

One of the most important things for us to do over the next few weeks is to put together the adult schedule for camp. We need to ensure that we have adequate coverage throughout the week and we need to give our volunteers sufficient notice to plan their time off.

There will be a sign-up sheet available at the meeting next week, but feel free to send me email if you are planning on attending camp or if you have any questions.

By the way, I wasn’t kidding about the all-expenses-paid part … Yawgoog provides meals and accommodations for up to 4 adults free of charge … so it really won’t cost you more than your time!

I already submitted my vacation request … how about you?
