Dear Troop 1113 Scouts and Parents,
The weather outside is frightful, which means it must be time to start thinking about summer camp. The annual trek to the Blue Ridge Mountains Scout Reservation in Southwestern Virginia to Camp Powhatan is scheduled for Sunday, June 24 to Saturday, June 30, 2018. The reservation has something for everyone…new Scouts to the High Adventure veteran. Adults can attend camp too for the small fee of $25 for the week!
For every scout that attends camp, at least one adult in their family will need to volunteer to help with something. There will be plenty to do for everyone. We will need trained adults to ride down to Camp Powhatan and stay for the week. If you are unable to spend the entire week, you may want to split the week with a partner. We will also need volunteers to help collect/track the medical forms, coordinate swim tests, and help with various other jobs on the morning of departure.
This year, T1113 is offering a large variety of week-long programs at Camp Powhatan. T1113 plans for each scout to go to Brownsea Island (BSI) during the first year of scouting followed by two years of Merit Badge camp to complete many Eagle-required merit badges. The additional camps are targeted for the more experienced scouts (13 or older). The programs and the fees are listed in the attachments. More detailed information can be found https://bsa-brmc.org/LeadersGuides
A deposit of $150 per scout is due along with the completed registration form which is attached and can be downloaded. Please bring both to any meeting before February 7th. A second payment of $150 is due by March 28th with the balance due by May 30th.
Please note that Camp Powhatan has a strict policy regarding cancellations. All fees are final March 30th and are not refundable.
If cost is prohibiting a scout from attending, please see Mr. Robertello or Mr. Schouviller regarding financial assistance.
