Summer Camp July 22-28 — June Update

  • Reminders – Final payments were due May 8th.  Don’t forget medical forms for Scouts and Adults with a Doctor’s signature AND include a copy of your medical insurance card, front and back.  You cannot attend Summer Camp without these items.
  • Kelly Reupert has agreed to coordinate the ordering and purchasing of merit badge booklets for Summer Camp.  This will save families the trouble of going to the Scout Shop themselves.  At Troop meetings on July 3rd and July 10th, the boys will have a chance to go thru the Troop library and borrow merit badge books (there is not a big selection).  Tell Mrs. Reupert what other books you need, pay $ 4.49 + tax for each (or it will be charged to your account), and they will be available to you no later than July 17th, which is a mandatory Troop meeting for Summer Camp.  Thank you Kelly!
  • For each Scout, fill out a Permission Slip and turn in by July 10th

Time to Order T-Shirts!

Keeping track of 25 or 30 Scouts at camp or on the road to high adventure can be challenging, to say the least. We’ve found that having all of our Scouts and Troops wear the same t-shirt for these events is a huge help to our adult leaders. So for the past few years we’ve let everyone know exactly what color troop t-shirts they will need to wear on these trips. This year, everyone (Scout or adult) who is going to summer camp at Camp Friedlander will need troop t-shirts in the following colors:  RED  YELLOW  BRIGHT GREEN  ORANGE  GRAY  TAN   MAROON

Everyone going on the high adventure trip to Minnesota will need: RED   YELLOW   BRIGHT GREEN   ORANGE

An order form is attached here:

Safe Shred Day – Saturday April 28th at St. Ignatius

This is an opportunity to provide a valuable public service to the Community, benefit Troop 850 and add to your Personal Camp Fund at the same time.  20 scouts and 8-10 adults are needed to help with this event.   Scouts will process confidential documents that parishoners and community members drop off during the 9 – 11 am event (volunteers will work 8 – noon).  

Shred Safe will provide 2 shredding trucks and portable totes.  Scouts will remove all metal and plastic bindings, paper clips and other non-shreddable items.  Adults will oversee the processing, aid in maintaining the flow of totes to the shredding trucks, and ensure traffic flow in the parking lot and general safety. 

Contact Mr. De Noma  if you are interested in participating.
