Hi Troop 582 Scouts & Parents,
It’s time to start planning for 2020 summer camp! The troop voted and the winning camp this year is Woodruff!
Here are the details that I know so far, but they are subject to change.
Here is the sign-up sheet: http://www.troop582.org/2020/01/summer-camp-2020-sign-up-sheet/
When: June 21–27
Where: Woodruff Scout Camp – Blairsville, GA
Cost: $360 per Scout
To help with paying for camp the cost is split into 3 payments with these due dates:
1st Payment: $120 – Monday, February 3rd, 2020
2nd Payment: $150 – Monday, March 30th, 2020
3rd Payment: $90 – Monday, May 11th, 2020
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 Woodruff Scout Camp, 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.
Let me know if you have questions about summer camp. I’ll do my best to answer them. Be sure and make that first payment by February 3rd to reserve your spot!
