Summer Camp 2015

Dates: June 21 - 27
Campmaster: Mike Bowers
Campers enjoy receiving mail while at camp.  Parents are encouraged to write letters (NOT send packages).  Prepare in advance and mail by Monday.  Don't include in letter anything that will cause homesickness. Leave out "we miss you" "sorry you couldn't be with us in the Bahamas because of camp" etc.  Bayport Scout Reservation discourages packages of goodies sent to the Scouts.  When the boys receive these packages, they tend to bring the goodies into their tent which in turn invites those unwanted 4 legged visitors.

    ·         I would suggest that everyone (parents and scouts) takes the time to read the leader’s guide.



    ·         As far as current camp fees.  We currently only have the base camp fees.  The leader’s guide does have additional merit badge fees and high adventure additional fees but I would mark that for reference for now and finalized after the April 18th leader’s meeting.

    Early Bird Payment

    v Early Bird Fee will be based per Scout and not per unit. This means it is possible for some Scouts to receive the Early Bird Fee where others may not.

    v For Early Bird Fees, final payments must be paid in full by April 1, 2015. If a Scout is NOT paid in full, the Early Bird Fee will be forfeited and the full cost will be applied. If a participant is added after the Early Bird deadline (regardless of when the troop registers), the full price will be charged.


    ·         There is a leaders conference for scoutmaster ( looking for 1 more adult to volunteer as I will be out of town on vacation )  on April 18th.   There is a form in the back of the reservation guide that needs to be mailed in prior to April 18th .    This meeting is where we will get information about extra fees for high adventure camp as well as instructions for online merit badge registration.  They may even do a merit badge sign up on this date at this meeting.

    ·         It looks like the merit badge registration will then open up on April 20th at noon.  We will need to have a parent get together to sign the boys up for camp if not done on the 18th.
