Summer Camp Info and Packing List

Summer Camp is coming up really fast! It is not too early to start thinking/planning ahead. On Sunday, June 12, the Scouts will meet on at 12:15 at the Klein Center. Cars transporting Scouts and the Eagle will roll out no later than 12:45 (times subject to change as we get closer to the actual date). All Scouts should be in full uniform. It will be hot, so have them fill their water bottle and tell them to drink. If your Scout did not participate in the Troop swim test, they must wear their swim trunks under their uniform and be prepared for swim test upon arrival at camp.

Attached is Mr. Pearson’s Summer Camp Packing List. Your Scout should pack his own gear so he knows what he has and where it is in his belongings. It will rain – be prepared.

All gear (except their sleeping bag) should be in a tub or footlocker with their name on it. Big Rubbermaid bins (20-30 gallon size) or plastic footlockers are available at Walmart/Target.

This is just example of a footlocker. Keep in mind, this will be used every summer for Scout summer camp and is great for storing camping gear throughout the year.: http://www.amazon.com/Sterilite-18429001-Footlocker-Titanium-Handle/dp/B00ESLT6NE?ie=UTF8&keywords=plastic%20rolling%20footlocker&qid=1463748174&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

Scouts who have signed up for the first aid merit badge must have a small personal first aid kit. They may bring one from home or they are available for purchase at the Trading Post.

Scouts who have signed up for ATV or Mountain Bike must have a long sleeve shirt and pants to participate. We have received the required permission slips from the ATV participants. A permission slip for mountain bikes is not required.

We recommend the Scout bring a Sharpie marker to write their name and unit on anything they want to keep at camp. In particular, this will be handy for Slushie cups at the Trading Post.

Friday afternoon (anytime after 2:00 p.m.) is family time. Families are encouraged to come down to the camp in the afternoon. You can bring a dinner to have with your scout. Bring a chair. Dinner is available in the dining hall, if you can’t make it. No personal vehicles are allowed in the campsite. Please park in the Admin Lot and walk to the campsite.

Keep in mind camp does not end until Saturday. Please, do not take your scout home on Friday after family time. We pack on Saturday morning and need everyone to help.

If you do want to send a letter or package to your son, the address is :

Camp Crooked Creek
900 Terry Drive
Shepherdsville, Kentucky 40165
Make sure to leave enough time for the items to arrive during camp. You should expect it to take at least three days. Include their name, campsite (number 6) and Troop number (Troop 30). If you are able to plan ahead, you can send care package with the adult leaders on Sunday.

Any other questions should be directed to your Patrol Leader. Pick up time will be announced on Sunday before departure. Ask any and all questions before you leave the parking lot on Sunday. There is zero cell phone coverage at Camp and adult leader are not available for individual questions/emails during camp.

Packing list:
Complete Boy Scout Uniform
5 T-shirts
5 shorts or pants
6 pair of underwear
jacket or sweatshirt
6 pairs of socks
2 pairs of shoes (sandals or open-toed shoes are allowed only at the waterfront)

Make sure all of your scouts gear is labeled with his name or initials. Put their name on everything. Remember all socks look alike and they will get commingled at some point. Here is a suggested list.

Update 5/15-5/21

Hi, Troop 30!
Medical Forms: Many families need to turn in their scouts immunization record and copies of insurance cards. Scouts may NOT attend summer camp if they do not have a current physical exam, immunization record and insurance card on file. Please see Ms. Isham immediately.

Make Up Physical Exams: If your Scout was not able to attend the medical exams on 4/28, they will have another chance on during the troop meeting, Thursday, May 19. A parent must complete sections A & B, sign and provide immunization and insurance info. This is the last chance for a Free Troop exam.

May 19 – Parent meeting during regular Troop meeting. Please plan to attend this meeting to discuss all Summer Camp 2016, Troop 30 2016 Canada trip, and other Scout opportunities. This is your opportunity to ask questions.

May 28 – Saturday Morning – Flag ceremony at Zachary Taylor Cemetary. Scouts participating in the Color Guard should arrive no later than 7:45. Be in full uniform and dress shoes. All other Scout and families should plan to arrive by 8:30. Bring gloves or a bottle cap to make placing the flags easier. Remember, parking is very limited. Consider parking at Christ United Methodist and walking to the cemetery.

May 28 – Saturday Afternoon-Evening – Fundraising Opportunity. Adult leaders and parents are needed for a car parking fund raising event. On Saturday, May 28, Papa John’s Cardinal Football Stadium is hosting the Kenny Chesney Concert. It is expected to be a sell out event and parking in the vicinity of the stadium will be in demand. Troop 30 has been invited to park cars on the Whip Mix parking lots on Farmington Avenue, where we also park for U of L football games. This an opportunity for the Troop to earn money for our programs, and also for those families that participate to put funds in their scout’s troop account. We will divide the parking crews into three shifts: Noon to 4:00; 4:00 to 8:00; and 8:00 to midnight. For each adult that works a shift, we will put $50 in your scout’s troop account, available to pay for any scout program fees. Adults may work more than one shift or more than one parent may work, to earn more money. This is an adult fund raising event. Scouts are welcome to come, but only adults will earn the $50 for a scout account. To be assigned a work shift and location, see Mr. Derrick at the scout meeting, e-mail him at derrickeng@aol.com, or call him on his cell phone 593-3573. Thanks for helping Troop 30 earn funds for our scout program.
