Summer Camp Reminders

Arrive at the church at noon on Sunday, July 24, in your Class A uniform. Have the following with you: packed backpack as previously discussed, water bottle, COMPLETED BSA PHYSICAL FORM (You will NOT leave the church parking lot without it as you will not be permitted into camp without it.), your prerequisites, and Pipestone wood. Wear your swimsuit under your Scout shorts and have a towel readily accessible as the swim check is one of our first stops after check-in. Be sure to eat a good meal before arriving at the church as there is no food available until dinner at 6:00. DO NOT BRING FOOD. It attracts unwelcome furry guests.

We will arrive back at the church on Saturday, July 30, at approximately 10:30 a.m. PLEASE BE ON TIME TO PICK UP YOUR SCOUT, as all leaders will have had a long week and want to go home, as will your Scout.
