Summer Camp Medical Forms - Don't Wait!

Posted on May 29 2017 - 8:48am

If you do not have a medical form on file dated within the last year, you must fill out a new one for summer camp.  Summer camp is a PART C REQUIRED activity, so you must have Part C filled out by a physician.  Don't wait until the last minute to try and get an appointment with your physician to get this completed.  If you need assistance, please see a leader and we will be glad to help you.

Summer Camp Swim Test - June 10th

Posted on May 29 2017 - 8:47am
We will do a local swim test like we did last year before we go to camp to avoid some of the crowds at check-in.  This year's test will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 10th at 405 Gum Branch Road in the Coulwood neighborhood.  This is the home of Michael and Karen Kinnett (friends of Ms. Malinda) who have graciously agreed to allow us to hold the test there.  There will be two sessions:
STRONG SWIMMERS ONLY - 10:00 AM - 12noon.  We will move through these tests quickly as the boys who are swimmers can do the test quickly.  Please DO NOT attend this session unless your scout is a good swimmer.
We will be partnering with Troop 23 for the swim tests because our life guard is a member of their troop, so parking may be an issue.  Please be mindful and do not park in the front yards of the Kinnetts or their neighbors.  Kentberry Drive runs up beside the house and you may park on that street.
