Summer Camp - Sign-up Please: June 14-16

Posted on Feb 19 2015 - 9:10pm

Troop 416 - 

Several months ago, the scouts voted heavily in favor of attending Camp Avoldale in Louisiana.  We have reserved June 14-20th.  The parent committee researched a great option to travel together as a troop on a charted bus with many amenities due to the longer distance and to reduce the number of parent cars necessary to get to camp. We have a few exciting side trips planned on the way too!
Now, we need your families to RSVP to camp so that we can ensure we have the numbers necessary to reserve the bus.  The camp has not published their guide yet but we expect the cost of the camp and transportation to be close to $300 depending on the number attending.  This is the #1 opportunity to earn Merit Badges and have fun for the scouts!
Whether you are going or not, please register and indicate yes or no to the event on the website. http://www.troop416.us/home
If you need help with your password please email scout.webmaster@troop416.us.
Thanks for your attention to this request -
