Here’s something warmer to think about: Boy Scout Resident Camp. We are booked for Gerber Scout Reservation the week of June 21-27. We have 20 spots reserved for boys.
Gerber offers quite a few Eagle-required badges, so this may give older scouts a chance to finish up several of those. Scouts can choose up to 5 merit badges to work on. They also have the Eagle Quest program where younger scouts can spend the morning completing most of the requirements for tenderfoot, second class, and first class. We will have merit badge signups at one of the March meetings.
Cost will be $300. (Scholarships are available, see the scoutmaster). We need to pay a $150 deposit per scout by March 2. Second payment will be due end of April.
We need at least 5 adults to attend resident camp. Troop 7 pays your cost. We’ve had two parents split the week if you can’t take a whole week off work. I know some dads who have been going for several years might like a year off, so if there’s a way you can help out, please let me know. They have several adult training programs available. Last year several dads were able to get some bike riding in while at camp and enjoyed COPE for adults.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
