Summer Camp Signup Time is Here!

Summer Camp Signup has arrived. I am very excited to announce that I will be the Scoutmaster at camp this summer. (Major thanks to Mr. Fullam these past two summers for showing me the ropes. I have big shoes to fill!)  Troop 172 has already reserved Seneca camp at Camp Tri-Mount for the week July 29 – August 4th.

Please note: This is Sunday through Saturday.

The theme for the week is: Better than Reality TV

Take a look at Vol 1, No. 1 of the Tri-Mount Times! In it you’ll see mention of a Summer Camp Fee Schedule.  In a nutshell – they’ve created a payment schedule so that we get the Early Fee of $350.00. (Regular fee is $450!) Note: If a lot of Troops sign up, the cost could be reduced to $300.

Here’s the fee schedule:

First payment- $100 – Due March 1 (or before!)

Second payment- $100 – Due April 1 (no foolin’)

Final payment- $150 – Due May 1

All checks should be made out to: BSA Troop 172

As we are staying in Council this year for camp, there are more possibilities for Scholarship assistance. PLEASE do not let funds get in the way of your scout at Summer Camp. Let me know ASAP if you will need assistance and confidential arrangements will be made.
