Summer Camp 2009

Camp with Troop 54

Troop 54 will attend summer camp at Treasure Valley in 2009. We will once again stay at the Evergreen site, the closest site to the mess hall. Our week at camp runs Sunday, July 5 through Friday, July 10. Scouts may optionally stay until Saturday morning.

Camp fees and forms:

Troop 54 holds a Parents Meeting before camp. This year's meeting will be held Tuesday, June 23, at 7:00PM.

The 2009 Leader's Guide (the camp manual) describes many aspects of camp.

Some "homework" for participants and their parents to complete before arrival at camp:

Following the camp rules, we have to arrive together at 11:30 AM on Sunday, July 5. We will meet at the church at 10:30 AM and drive to Treasure Valley together. Campers should bring lunches for that one day.

A camp-wide dinner, troop Court of Honor, camp-wide closing ceremony, and camp-wide closing campfire are held on Friday evening at the end of camp. Families are welcome at all of these events. The troop pays for the dinner, but we will need to know on July 5 how many members of each family plan to atend.

Class B Troop T-Shirts havbe been ordered for all troop members. Scouts attending camp should bring $10.60 for two of these to camp.

Other Weeks

The Mohegan Council offers Boy Scout Summer Camp for six weeks (Troop 54 is attending camp the first of these). If you can't attend with Troop 54 or if one week is not enough for you, you might consider attending camp one or more other weeks.

More information should be available on the Mohegan Council web page, under Treasure Valley / Summer Camp / Boy Scout Camp.

Having one of your friends at camp can be important to some boys. If this is the case, you might be able to find someone else in the troop who wants to join you in this separate adventure.

Other Camps

Other councils offer Boy Scout Summer Camp. You can find one (probably several) in any state to attend as a provisional resident camper. A couple of examples in our region:
