Three last minute reminders...

1) Camp Daniel Boone does not allow sheath knives. If you bring one, it will have to be kept by the Scoutmaster.

2) Closed toe shoes must be worn everywhere except: your cot, the shower and on the waterfront.

3) Pack your swim trunks and a water bottle in your Ready Bag and keep it where you can grab it fast when we arrive. Scouts will be separated from the rest of their gear for a few hours after arriving. And swim tests will be done early.

4) I will try to post pictures throughout the week as connectivity allows. Watch our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/208343972549704/

ONE AVAILABLE CAMP SPOT

Due to a last minute cancelation, we have had ONE summer camp spot open up. If you missed the signup deadline, or had a change of plans and would now like your scout to go to Camp Daniel Boone for summer camp. Please email Scoutmaster Norred ASAP. This spot is first come first served. The cost is still $390 and there are plenty of fun summer camp classes still available.

CLASS SCHEDULES

Check your email for a copy of the current class schedules for all scouts. Please review this and let Scoutmaster Norred know if any changes are needed.

PACKING FOR CAMP

Scouts should have brought home a packing list from this Monday's meeting. We spent a major portion of the troop meeting reviewing the list and discussing each item. Please make sure your scout is an active participant in the packing process - and help them verify that they have what they need.
Here http://www.troop465.org/Docs/2022_Summer_Camp_Packing_List.pdf is a copy of the packing list, in case the printed copy did not find its way to your home.

PARENT'S GUIDE

Camp Daniel Boone publishes a Parent Guide, that is available here: https://www.campdanielboone.org/files/40145/2022-cdb-parent's-guide
In it, you will find helpful information about: sending mail to your scout during camp, the camp's COVID protocols, trading post estimates, etc.

TROOP BEHAVIOR CONTRACT

Here http://www.troop465.org/Docs/2022_Summer_Camp_Behavior_Contract.pdf is our troop's Summer Camp Behavior Contract. Please review this document with your scout, both sign it, and turn in a signed copy to Mr. Norred before camp.

MEDICAL FORMS

All campers must turn in updated medical forms prior to camp. This should include parts A, B & C and include a photocopy of your health insurance card. https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf
If we do not have medical paperwork for your camper, they will not be allowed to come to camp. Please turn in your paperwork to Mr. Zelinsky at a troop meeting. Questions can be sent to nzelinsky@msn.com.
