Troop 850 will be attending Summer Camp July 6-12 at Camp Davy Crockett located northeast of Knoxville, TN. The cost including transportation costs is $275 per Scout and $50 per Adult. Payments should be made to Troop 850 and the first payment of $100 ($50 for adults) is due February 25th with the balance due by May 13th.
All Scouts and Adults are required to complete a Medical form signed by a medical professional. A link to this form is provided below.
Also provided is a link to the 2014 Leaders Guide for Camp Davy Crockett which contains a whole lot of detail about Summer Camp. Information about merit badges offered and the schedule for classes can be found on pages 9 – 11. Page 16 has details on programs for older Scouts. Please note, some extra fees are charged for certain merit badges and programs.
The merit badge classes are scheduled between 9:00 – 12:00 and 2:00 – 5:00. Scouts should have a schedule with no more than 1 free period during those times and include at least 1 Eagle required merit badge. More information on Merit Badges can be found at www.meritbadge.org .
We will register for merit badge classes as a Troop, so when you hand in your deposit include your merit badge selections (including at least 3 alternates) and your choices will be reviewed by an Adult leader.
Adult participation is critical for us to have a successful summer camp experience for the Scouts. By only charging $50 for adults, the Troop will pick up the majority of the costs in order to encourage adults to attend.
