The Troop will be having two (2) campouts in September. Council and District have decided to go ahead and have Camporee the weekend of September 11-13. (This is the event that is usually held in the Spring but got postponed this year) and Webelos Woods on September 25-27.
Rest assured, that to be able to hold these events next month, they had to make a few changes to make things as safe as possible regarding COVID. One of the main changes is that the camp will be providing all meals. This means that even ASMs/adults will be charged for meals.
Another of the changes is that they will be closing registration over a week before the campout. They do not want any last-minute attendees because they want to ensure that they are able to keep track of everyone that is in camp. Therefore, we will need to collect campout payments and permission slips early. We are only going to collect for one campout at a time.
Camporee: Sep. 11 – 13
Camporee payments/permission slips will be due Tuesday, September 1. Please scan/email or take a photo/text the completed permission slip to Becky Smith. (See Troop email for phone number and email address.) To make this easier, we will be taking PayPal payments (see Troop email for links). You may turn in a check or cash if you prefer, but we will not have change. Cash payments will not have to be in separate amounts for gas and camping.
Webelos Woods: Sep. 25 – 27
Webelos Woods is September 25 – 27. Since they are closing registration early for this event also, Webelos Woods payments/permission slips will be due Tuesday, September 15th.
The PayPal links for Scouts and adults are below. If you prefer not to do PayPal You may turn in a check or cash to Becky SMith (at the PLC meeting on 9/14), but we will not have change. Cash payments will not have to be in separated amounts for gas and camping.
Here are campout permission slips and all of the forms that the Council and District are requiring for Webelos Woods.
