Summer Camp enrollment and Camperships

Posted by R.Monette on Jan 15 2017 - 4:50am

The troop would ike to get all the boys signed up for Summer Camp now, so that Camperships can be applied for earlier than the deadline and be applied in time to receive the early bird discounted rate that is saving each scout $50. Scouts will still be allowed to sign up as long as the camp has room, but there will be not guarantees on the lower rate or Camperships.

Outings being cancelled due to poor participation

Posted by R.Monette on Jan 15 2017 - 4:50am

It has become apparent that only the boys requiring sign offs are attending outings, unless they are going someplace like Carpenteria. Nothing has been locked in for February to date for this reason and the outing in March has been pulled off the calendar because the cost of the outing to the number of Scout likely to go. Scouts are supposed to go on 50% of the outings each year in order to achieve the next highr rank advancement (including higher ranks) by Troop bylaws and this has not been enforced. We will not be able to plan ahead and do outings like Carpenteria again if we can get participation levels back up and sign ups are not made the 1-2 weeks before the outings occur.
