Summer Camp is almost here! Summer camp at Seven Ranges is a fun and exciting time for our boys (and many adults), where scouts will be earning merit badges, going to campfires,
sleeping in big tents with cots, and enjoying one another's company. There are a lot of details that go into sending a child to camp, and our adult leaders are here to help. Some of these
details are listed below, but it is not a comprehensive list. As you think of questions, please feel free to ask. We will be happy to help in any way that we can.
Sunday Itinerary and Family Night: A troop email was sent with itinerary and family night information.
Click here to view a copy of the email.
Packing List: Hard copies of the suggested packing list were available on Tuesday. An electronic copy can be found here:
Summer Camp Physicals: EVERYONE attending Summer Camp must have a completed
Physical Form, including Part C, which requires examination by a doctor. Completed forms, along with a copy of
the front and back of your health insurance card, are due as soon as they are complete, and should be turned in to Brad Clarke. SCOUTS AND ADULT CAMPERS WITHOUT COMPLETED PHYSICAL FORMS WILL NOT
BE PERMITTED TO ENTER CAMP!
Pipestone: Scouts should be preparing for the Pipestone camp honor. Pipestone wood is due for inspection. If parents
have questions about pipestone wood, they should direct them to Mike Baker (mikebaker1026 AT gmail.com). There are other requirements to earn a Pipestone, and they are listed on our
Summer Camp page. Scouts should review the requirements for their year and make sure they are prepared.
Summer Camp Merit Badges: Many merit badges have requirements that must be completed prior to camp. Scouts should review the
Merit Badge Prerequisites and be sure they are complete prior to their first merit badge class.
Bring a Bucket: When we arrive at camp, scouts will have to carry their gear from the parking lot to our campsite.
In order to lighten the load, scouts may pack and bring a five gallon bucket with a lid. The bucket will be taken to camp on the trailer, so fill it with items you don't want to carry. Scouts
who decorate their bucket will have a shot at the prestigious Troop 935 bucket decorating championship!
Money: There is a trading post where scouts can buy souvenirs, ice cream and candy, merit badge kits, etc. Scouts
are encouraged to give their cash to an adult leader when we are preparing to leave for camp -- we will have a table set up in the fire station parking lot where this will be done. The money
will be marked with the scout's name and kept in a lockbox. When a scout wants his money, any 935 adult will be able to get it for him.
Pack a Sack Lunch for Sunday: Our departure and check-in are over the lunch hour, but lunch is not served at camp on
Sunday. Scouts should pack a sack lunch, which they can eat while we are waiting to check in.
No Food in the Tents: Do not pack food to keep with you throughout the week, and do not keep food you buy at the trading
post in your tent. If you do, you will have wildlife in your tent with you. Insects, field mice, raccoons, and skunks will sniff out food, no matter how tightly it is wrapped or sealed.
Don't do it.
Bring a Watch: Scouts will be responsible for getting to places on time and phones are not permitted, even to check the time.
Scouts should wear a watch.
