Summer Camp 2019

Hi Troop 582 Scouts & Parents,

It’s time to start planning for 2019 summer camp! In November the troop narrowed down the camp choice to 3 different camps. The troop voted and the winning camp is Bert Adams!

Here are the event details. Scouts should sign up on our troop web site using the link below.

When: June 23 – 29
Where: Bert Adams Scout Camp – Covington, GA
Cost: $325 per Scout ($315 per scout + $10 for Adventure Camp camp site)
Sign Up Link: http://www.troop582.org/2019/01/summer-camp-2019-sign-up-sheet/

To help with paying for camp the cost is split into 3 payments with these due dates:

1st Payment: $115 – Monday, February 4th, 2019
2nd Payment: $100 – Monday, April 15th, 2019
3rd Payment: $110 – Monday, June 3rd, 2019

There may be additional fees for merit badge kits, off-site trips, or high adventure trips if your scout chooses to participate in those activities. I will communicate those fees to you at a later time.

Parents are welcome to attend camp along with their scout. Troops are required to send a minimum of 2 adults to summer camp with their scouts. We are required to adhere to the 2 deep leadership policy at camp just as we do for all other scouting activities. Keep in mind that 2 is the minimum. The load is easier on everyone when more adults attend camp with the troop. Scouts and adults always have a great time and I hope that you will consider attending.

If your scout has not been to Bert Adams, please visit the link below and watch the summer camp video on this page. Information about summer camp will be made available by Atlanta Area Council in the upcoming months. I’ll share any important information as it becomes available.
