Summer camp 2017 - Adult leaders

Posted by robertgates on Jan 24 2017 - 10:54am


The troop has opened the Summer Camp registration process.  In order to have a successful summer camp we need adult leaders in camp for the week.
Typically the troop would like for leaders to commit to:
1) Full week Sunday through Saturday
2) First half of the week Sunday through Wednesday
3) Second half of the week Wednesday through Saturday
For leaders we would need to register you with the troop (if not already registered) and you would need to be current with your YPT.
There are 2 summer camps
1) Woodruff - Sunday June 11, 2017 - Saturday June 17, 2017
2) Skymont - Sunday July 9, 2017 - Saturday July 15, 2017
Also for each camp we will want to designate the Leader at camp who is the adult leader that will be in camp all week and will be the main contact for the camp for the week.
Please let me know if you would like to assist at either (or both) camp(s) so we can start building the adult team.  In the camp registration form there is an area you can indicate your willingness to assist.  If there are any questions please feel free to reach out to me directly.
