Troop 30 – IMPORTANT info re September Outing

Dear Troop 30 parents,

I wanted to let you know some details about this months outing, Sept 23-25. It will start as a normal outing with departure from The Temple at 6:30. The Scout should eat dinner and try to arrive as close to 6 PM as possible. The Scout should have signed up with Mr. Pennington and have informed his Patrol Leader (and adult ASM) that he will be attending.  This allows for transportation and food planning.

We will be going to Camp Crooked Creek, Site 12 so it is a relatively easy outing.

The difference is our return.  Our outing is to be followed by our participation in the Hunger Walk. Normally we have pickup for the Scouts at 11 AM on Sunday and that will be the case if your Scout cannot attend the Hunger Walk. After we arrive back at The Temple, we will work around The Temple followed by a pizza lunch. We will board a bus at 1 PM, go by JCC for a pickup, and proceed to EP Tom Sawyer for the walk.  the walk starts at 2-2:15. We should arrive back at The Temple for Scout’s to be picked up about 4:30 PM.

I give you this info so that you know that your Scout can attend the Hunger Walk even if he is not able to attend the outing. He can meet us at The Temple or at Sawyer Park.

By the way, ALL are invited to attend the Hunger Walk with us.  It is a 5k walk that even young children can typically complete. This is one of the things we do to represent The Temple and Scouting in our community.  Your suppport is appreciated.

Some summer camp pics

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)
