Summer Camp 24-30 June 2018

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.

Adult Campers and Drivers Needed this Weekend

I am looking for some adult campers and drivers for this weekend. I add am being called out of town of Friday for work,  and will not be back until late. I currently have 5 Scouts,  and one adult signed up. I have no adults for Friday night. If we do not get at least two campers we will have to cancel the camp out. We could still make it a day trip for the fishing if people are interested.

First Meeting – Aug. 30/ First Outing Sept. 15

Scouts and Scouters,

 

I trust everyone had a great summer even if it did seem short.  There were certainly a lot of activities to take part in outdoors this summer. I have a lot of information in this first first week of school.

Welcome back to another year of Scouting.  Our first meeting is this Wednesday from 7:30-9:00p, in the Guadalupe room.  As is customary we ask that parents return by 8:45 so that they can hear announcements of upcoming activities before dismissal.

Our first camping trip is coming up in three short weeks, September 15th.  I ask that everyone who plans on attending make a commitment by the meeting on the 6th so that we can give a good count to our charter boat captain.  I have pasted the information for the campout below and attached the sign-up sheet.  Once again there is the ability to sign up and pay for the campout online at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0D49AFAC23A3FA7-fishing

 

Scouts will be participating in fishing using Miss Grace Charters at 1:00pm on Saturday.  More information can be found at MissGraceCharters.com. August and September offer a variety of options. In a given day you can liveline, troll, jig and bottom fish. Is not uncommon to do a little of each. Live lining for rockfish is still going strong and catching Bluefish and Spanish mackerel by either trolling or jigging provide fast action.  The Troop will be staying at the Greenbelt National Park.  Close toed shoes are REQUIRED, long pants and a long sleeve shirt is recommended.  This trip is fall camping and each scout MUST dress and pack accordingly. Rain gear is mandatory.  Each Scout should also be prepared for whatever weather we may encounter, and pack accordingly.

Fishing Consent Sept 2017

Cost is $80.00 per person, $50 for Scouters/fishermen. Fee MUST be paid by 13/SEP/2017!!
