This year, Troop 54 will attend summer camp at Camp Wanocksett. Our last year at this summer camp was in 2019. Our
Scouts will stay in two-person
canvas wall tents on wooden platforms; each Scout will have a cot. Meals will be prepared by the camp
and served in their dining hall. We will camp in the Chippewa site.
2022 Leader's Guide

staying at camp one night or more must submit this form (Parts A, B and C) by June 14. It is recommended that you keep the original and submit a copy. Note that this

of your medical insurance card. If your doctor did not complete Part C, transcribe information from
the doctor-provided record onto Part C. The complete vaccination record must be attached (NH requirement). Fill out "Part D-NH: Permission to Possess & Use Epinephrine Auto-Injector and/or Asthma Inhaler" if applicable. Include your COVID-19 vaccination record so that you can stay in camp in the event of a close contact. See our Annual Health and Medical Record page for what to enter in some of the form fields.

Merit badge information is included in the Leader's Guide. An updated list and schedule for available 2022 merit badges was provided June 29 (although mis-labeled as for 2021).

What to Pack
See our summer camp Packing List. To emphasize a few items to bring:
- Full uniform (shirt with shoulder loops, pants, socks, neckerchief, neckerchief slide, belt) - we will wear these daily
for evening meals and assemblies.
- Drink mix packets - everyone needs to avoid becoming dehydrated. If you have difficulty drinking water,
bring something to mix into it.
- Flip flops - to wear in the shower. It is probably a good idea not to touch the floor.
- Poles for mosquito net - see our page for details.
- See our Insects page for details on mosquito repellent and pre-treatment of clothing.
The following items should be carried in a day pack or worn during arrival (not packed in the trailer):
- Full uniform - wear this
- Swimsuit - wear this under uniform - needed for swim check
- Meds, including inhalers or epipens - youth will hand these in during med check
- Towel for swimming - needed for swim check
- Dry underwear - for after the swim check
- Lunch, unless you eat before arrival at the church.
- Water bottle
- Pocket comb - in case the pictures are after the swim check
- Mosquito repellant
Departure - We will meet at Epworth at 11:00 AM on Sunday to pack our gear into the trailer. We need to leave the trailer at the site before 1:00 PM (when the camp opens). The drive to the camp takes about 70 minutes, so we will leave Epworth at 11:30 AM. Have lunch before coming to the church or bring a bag lunch to eat at the camp (nothing that requires cooking). The first meal provided by the camp will be dinner.
Return - Our estimated return to Epworth is 12:00 PM on Saturday.
Late arrivals at camp - Advise the Scoutmaster in advance. The troop is expected to show up together.
You can purchase care packages (essentially a cashless way for your Scout to make purchases at the camp trading post) for Scouts and leaders on-line - just be sure to
place your order while we are at camp (not in advance).
