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.

USCGC Taney Overnighter 20-21 Jan 2018

Scouts and Scouters,

Our January camping opportunity will be aboard the US Coast Guard Cutter Taney in the Baltimore, MD Harbor. USCGC Taney offers groups a unique opportunity to walk in the footsteps of former Coast Guardsmen and learn about life aboard a war ship, lifesaving vessel, and law enforcement patrol boat. We will be meeting at St Leo’s at 11:30 on Saturday for a noon departure and will return at our normal time on Sunday.

This should be a great opportunity, but remember it is still cold weather camping.  Please read the attachments for gear to bring and I will need page 12 filled out and signed by an adult and page 13 filled out for each adult attending.  This campout requires one adult over the age of 21 for each five youth attending.  Please plan accordingly.

This camp out can be signed up and payed for online at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0D49AFAC23A3FA7-uscgc

Sign up for Merit Badge Day by December 18, 2017

Troop 1113 Scouts,
 
We have an opportunity on Saturday, March 3, 2018 to take up to two merit badges (one Eagle required and one elective) at the first annual George Mason District Merit Badge Day.  The Day will be held (indoors!) at Fairfax Presbyterian Church.  
 
The deadline to sign up for the merit badge(s) you want to take is December 18, 2017.
The reason for the December 18 deadline is that we need to map counselors and Scouts to courses and then get Scouts the pre-work needed to give you a good chance to meet all the requirements and leave the Merit Badge Day with a fully-signed blue card.
To sign up for a merit badge, see Assistant Scoutmaster Matt Burns at next week’s Scout meeting or send him an e-mail at “burnsmj509@gmail.com.”  
The attached flyer has more information about the District Merit Badge Day and a list of the merit badges that will be offered.
