Summer Camp 2024
Sunday, July 14 -
Saturday, July 20, 2024
This year, Troop 54 will attend summer camp at Camp Wanocksett. Our last year at this summer camp was in 2022. 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. Our site will be determined by the camp close to our week. 2024 is Camp Wanocksett's 100th anniversary year.
2024 Leader's Guide
- The Leader's Guide should give you a good idea how this camp is run.

- Annual Health and Medical Record -
each youth or adult member
staying at camp one night or more must submit this form (Parts A, B and C) by June 4. It is recommended that you keep the original and submit a copy. Note that this
requires a physical exam within the year before camp (with doctor signature) and a copy of both sides
of your medical insurance card. 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. See our Annual Health and Medical Record page for what to enter in some of the form fields. New to us in 2024: This camp wants what we have by the due date, even if something is missing; if your physical will be after June 4, submit the outdated physical with the form and send the updated physical when it is available.
- Campership Application - A campership is financial aid for camp. A link to the 2024 campership applicaiton will be added when it is available.
- To stay overnight at camp with the Troop, an adult must be a registered
member of the BSA.
- NH DCYF Central Registry Check - Any adult attending camp who has lived in the State of New Hampshire at any point in the past seven years must complete a Central Registry Check. See the Leader's guide for details. This must be submitted by June 18.

This year's membership offerings will be posted when they become available.
Badges earned during Summer Camp will be presented at a Court of Honor in September.
The Troop will hold a pre-camp meeting June 18, 7:00-8:30 PM. Each Scout attending camp should attend this meeting with a parent.
What to Pack
Packing information will be posted later.
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).
