Tis the season….for Summer Camp!
Troop 850 will be attending Summer Camp July 8-14 at Camp Davy Crockett located northeast of Knoxville, TN. The cost including transportation costs is $300 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 13th with the balance due by May 8th.
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.
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 2018 Leaders Guide for Camp Davy Crockett which contains lots of detail about Summer Camp. Information about merit badges begins on page 11 and the schedule for Merit Badge classes can be found on the last page on the “Scout Registration Worksheet”. Pages 22-23 have some details on programs for older Scouts. Please note any age restrictions and extra fees 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 Camp and for merit badge classes as a Troop, so all you need to do when you submit your deposit is to complete the Worksheet and indicate your merit badge selections (including at least 3 alternates) and your choices will be reviewed by an Adult leader.
